Our recipe of the week is for a Purple Fruit and Veggie Smoothie. This comes from the website, FreshFarm.org, see the link below.
Purple Fruit and Veggie Smoothie
This recipe is perfect for getting your nutrients in when time is not on your side. This is quick and easy. Simply throw all the ingredients in a high-powered blender, blend, pour and drink.
If you have the time, and want to make this part of a more filling breakfast, reduce the liquid content by ½ a cup to thicken. Then, pour into a bowl and top with granola and fresh fruit.
This recipe also works with other berry flavors, just substitute frozen strawberries or mixed berries or even peaches for the Blueberries.
