Tomato Beetroot Smoothie/
Energy Packed Drink/
These days i am trying to recover from some health issues. So my concentration is more towards healthy substitutes. I try to replace my dinner with something healthy and filling. Yesterday i was going through some healthy food sites and suddenly i saw blood red juice/smoothie which grabbed my attention immediately. I saw ingredients and very much surprised to see that there were hardly anything required for that energy packed drink.
I decided to give it a try and after finishing my dinner part i grabbed my ingredients went to the kitchen and within 15 minutes it was ready. My son who refused to have dinner enjoyed it a lot. Its a energy packed rich drink which can be made thin or thick as per your choice. A good substitute for carrot juice available in fruit juice parlors.
Its so easy, quick and healthy drink. You don't need to sieve it to squeeze out juice and throw the pulp. Just run it through something with big holes to remove seeds of lemon and tomatoes or any piece left (this step is purely optional). A very refreshing drink for summers. Its a great drink for patients as its easy to digest and doesn't have any artificial, oily or unhealthy ingredients. A very healthy breakfast accompanied with a multi grain bread toast, a very great evening snack with a bowl of sprouts or a very scrumptious dinner with any salad. Start your day with it or call it a day with it, take it any way any time with any accompaniment or alone, it will never disappoint you. Try it guys its a great way to wash off toxins from your tummy and give you a energy booster.
