Purple Smoothie

Purple Smoothie

In honor of this year’s #PaintItPurple theme for International Women’s Day, we have a luscious Purple Smoothie that will make you strong, healthy, and beautiful.

Purple cabbage in a smoothie? We know it’s weird but we cannot resist trying to milk the purple goodness of this veggie.

Besides helping complexion remain clean and clear, this cruciferous vegetable has anti-cancer properties, promotes heart health, aids digestion, lowers bad cholesterol and blood pressure.

To mask the “cabbage” taste, we added orange-flavored collagen peptide powder that also has beautifying qualities, and a generous dose of brown rice syrup (stevia would also work).

Recipe:

2 cups unsweetened almond milk

1 cup frozen blueberries or mixed berries

3 teaspoons acai powder

1 tablespoon chia seeds

¼ head purple cabbage

1 tablespoon vanilla protein powder

1 tablespoon brown rice syrup

1 scoop Sparkle Collagen

Put everything in a high-speed blender and blend till smooth. You’ll feel virtuous for drinking this baby up but it won’t be painful at all, we promise!
