Chocolate Beetroot Shake

I am quite excited to share this new recipe, as it's my first time trying this combination.

I understand a lot of people may not be a fan of our friend, the beetroot, however the coupling of beetroot and chocolate I must say is wonderful, and suited for anyone reluctant to incorporate beetroot into their diets. 

Beetroot offers a multitude of health benefits & vitamins, from being a good source of iron, folate, & magnesium, to helping improve exercise performance, lower blood pressure, and prevent dementia. 

Prep Time: 10mins
