    Monster Mash Shake

    This two-tone shake is a fun and nutritious pick-me-up any time of day. Spinach is a functional food hero thanks to its diverse nutritional composition that promotes health beyond basic nutrition. Beetroot not only provides an eye-popping colour but also lends a good source of fibre to this drink, which, in turn, contributes to a healthy digestive tract.

    For an eye-popping breakfast or dessert, try turning this smoothie into a fun smoothie bowl. Simply reduce the amount of coconut milk, making each mixture a thicker and creamier consistency, and swirl smoothies into bowl before garnishing with any fun toppings you have on hand.
