I just put in one cooked beetroot and added a handful of curly kale and frozen mixed berries to the above recipe. The result was pleasant in my opinion...

Tried this today not nice at all the combination of the ginger and beetroot is over powering. Yucky wouldn't have it again...

I tried this, thought it was going to be refreshing, but the ginger was too overpowering and it's made me feel a bit sick all day. If I were to try this again I'd either skip the ginger all together or put the smallest amount in.

I'm new to smoothies and tried this. I should have grated the ginger instead of just blasting it. It was OK but not a recipe I will use again

I have a variety of these smoothies every morning, but I would also like to say that you can add to large handfuls of kale or spinach to the mixture and I promise that you won't be able to taste them. I often buy a couple of big bags and freeze them, so that I always have some to hand.

I'd like to know weights of the ingredients please. I use My Fitness Pal and when I enter this recipe it gives me a calorie total of 136 calories, not 88 - I've tweaked and tweaked but can't get it down to 88!
