Breakfast Smoothie

Beetroot juice, banana, coconut and chia pudding breakfast smoothie!

A tasty way to start the day! Beetroot juice taste horrible, well I think so anyway! but it’s a great way for runners to get my dietary nitrates which have been found to have a positive impact on performance. This smoothie packs in plenty of nitrates but the other flavours cleverly sweeten the taste of the beetroot juice!


Beetroot Juice concentrate –  2 Tablespoons

Chia Bia Whole chia seeds 15g

Honey – 1 tea spoon

Chopped Banana

Coconut Milk (or other diary free milk) 200ml

This is really easy to make but takes a little preparation!

To make the Chia pudding, soak 15g of whole chia seeds in the coconut milk overnight in the fridge.

In the morning combine all the ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth!  – You may want to add crushed ice for a thicker consistency.
