Purple Power Smoothie

My six year old’s favorite color is purple and anything purple is “so fancy”. I could probably throw brussels sprouts into this smoothie and she wouldn’t mind as long as it stayed purple. This purple elixir is a great way to start your morning and the gorgeous color is sure to bring a smile.

I have really enjoyed the benefits of making smoothies for myself and my family since starting this journey. Not only are they absolutely delicious they have so many health benefits! Knowing I can get a whole serving of fruits and veggies into a smoothie and start my family’s day off on the right foot means more than anything to me. Not only that, but studies have shown that smoothies can benefit bone health, heart health, increased energy, improved digestion and boost your immune system. Not convinced yet? Try a week of smoothies for breakfast and you will soon see a difference.

Prep for this smoothie is very easy as there is very few ingredients and a lot of them are stuff you already have in your pantry. A win win situation in my house.

After you have got all your ingredients together, just throw them in your Vitamix Blender and blend until smooth. Cleanup for this recipe is also simple, and that’s something everyone can appreciate. Pour in a cute mason jar and enjoy. This is a smoothie everyone can enjoy and nobody will complain. How could you complain when you’re drinking something purple?
