This powerful purple smoothie created by Dr. Jeanette Ryan packs a lot of punch because it is made from whole fruits which exposes more of the plant nutrients to your digestive track for easy absorption.
The Purple Smoothie is built upon the “Green Base” which you can find the recipe for here.
Pour 10 ounces of the green base back into the VitaMix. Add 1 cup of frozen organic fruit like Trader Joe’s Wild Boreal Blueberries or Cascadian Farms Organic Blueberries (available at Costco), and/or a blend of other deeply colored organic berries. Frozen cherries, blackberries, raspberries, or goji berries are great choices.
Add 2-3 scoops of your protein powder, preferably whey isolate or brown rice protein. Add some healthy fat in the form of 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil, 1 teaspoon raw coconut oil, or even some avocado. Blend on HIGH for another minute. This turns your green smoothie purple, and it is loaded with rejuvenating, disease fighting anti-oxidants like anthocyanins, polyphenols, carotenoids, and flavonoids.
Repeat tomorrow morning! Mix It up with other colorful fruits and veggies!
