Today’s breakfast smoothie is different than usual – it’s purple! Although it technically classifies as a green smoothie because it has kale, it resembles more of a power food smoothie which it also is because of loads of berries I added to it – blackberries and blueberries. Both of these berries are super high in vitamin C, vitamin K, nutrients and dietary fiber. As we know, dietary fiber is extremely important in maintaining a healthy digestive system, so berries are very good for you. Also, blue foods are high in anthocyanins which have strong anti-oxidant properties, so eat your berries guys as they’re not just delicious but also amazingly healthy.
Blackberry Smoothie recipe
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup blackberries
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1 large kale leaf (or 3 small ones)
- 2-3 tangerines
Blend all ingredients up in your Vitamix and enjoy! If using a different blender make sure to chop tangerines and banana into smaller pieces, and remove the hard stem from kale leaf.
