Coconut and Beetroot Smoothie

I made this to be part of a #pinknourishments competition on Instagram run by the quite incredible Anthea at Rainbow Nourishments. Her photos are amazing! 

I wanted to prove it was possible to make a sweet tasting smoothie, with absolutely no need for dried fruit or added sweetener. See what you think.
