Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the beetroot into a steamer over simmering water and cook for around 15 mins, add the apple and cook for a further 8 mins until both are tender.

  • STEP 2

    Blitz to a purée in a food processor. Add a splash of milk (or water from the saucepan), if necessary, to create a smooth texture. You may need to scrape the sides of the bowl a few times while blitzing to get a smooth consistency throughout.

  • STEP 3

    Serve one portion and divide the rest between small containers or ice cube trays and freeze.
