Iron-Rich Naturopathic Springtime Smoothie


  • 1 cup red beet peeled (can be cooked or raw).

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries

  • 1/2 frozen banana

  • 1 cup nut mylk of choice

  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds

  • 1/4 strong nettle tea

  • 1 teaspoon of black molasses

  • medjool dates or teaspoon of raw honey

Optional Spices


  • Add all ingredients into a high-speed blender, and blend until smooth. Adjust the thickness by adding in more nut mylk or filtered water until desired texture is reached. 
  • Drink from your favourite glass or make it into a smoothie bowl and top it off with fresh berries, coconut, raw cacao nibs, or oats.

History + Benefits:

This smoothie is excellent to boost Iron levels for everyone needing that kick. Beets pack a nutritional punch – they’re filled with fibre, folate, vitamin C, and iron. Beets also contain nitrates, a compound the body converts into nitric oxide, which helps to relax and dilate your blood vessels and can help improve athletic performance.  I added in strawberries for natural sweetness and Vitamin C which helps iron absorption, hemp seeds for plant-based protein, nettle tea for blood building and spoonful of black molasses to add more iron and minerals.
