Beet + Licorice Bowl

Beetroot and Licorice Bowl Recipe
This smoothie bowl with beet and currants is my long time favourite, I like twisting it up with some new spices or boosters every once in a while. At the moment I love this version with licorice root and ashwagandha. Licorice gives the bowl a sweet (almost candy-like) taste and it’s also a natural immune booster and stress reliever. I also often mix licorice with just hot water to make a delicious tea…Ashwagandha is another adaptogenic herb that has been used in ayurveda for several purposes like fighting fatigue and stress.
