Purple Smoothie Recipe

A few days ago I posted a purple smoothie to my Instagram account.  I enjoyed it so much I wanted to post it here as well. I picked up the organic purple kale at my local farmers market and used organic frozen blueberries.  For the toppings I used raw white mulberries and hemp seeds.   I recently discovered mulberries and love how they are sweet, chewy and crunchy.  I also love adding hemp seeds to my smoothies for a nutty flavor and added protein. This smoothie was a delicious start to my day.

Serves 2
2 cups filtered water
1 ripe banana
1 cup frozen blueberries
4-5 stalks purple kale

Raw hemp seeds
Raw dried white mulberries

Using a high-speed blender, blend the water, banana, blueberries, and purple kale until smooth.  Top with hemp seeds and mulberries.

If you don't have a high-speed blender, blend purple kale with water first to break down the kale.  Then add banana and blueberries and continue blending until smooth.
