So we had a special treat yesterday, a very healthy treat. Now time to get back into our antioxidants through fruits and veggies. Making smoothies that contain vegetables is not as easy as it seems. If you had the chance to drink your green smoothie you might have found that spinach it the strongest flavor, reason why we had to use sweet mango, and sweet orange juice. So, we do need to warn you: if you taste your smoothie and it doesn’t taste THAT good for YOU, feel free to add more of the sweeter fruits (bananas, strawberries, mangos, pineapples) the recipe call for. Smoothies are to be Enjoyed :). Today we are using red cabbage, high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C (it has twice the amount of white cabbage), and Vitamin K. It provides a good amount of Vitamin B6, Folate, Niacin, Riboflavin and Thiamin, plus it contains iron (yes iron, iron does not ONLY exist in meat), calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, that’s a big deal right?
Red Cabbage Smoothie – (Serves 1 Medium)
5 Red Cabbage Leaves
1/3 Almond Milk (or any other non-animal milk. If you have sweetened almond milk it will go better with this smoothie)
1 Frozen Banana
1 Cup of frozen strawberries
1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
1. Add all the ingredients into the blender and blend. Feel free to modify serving sizes for your needs.
