Purple Smoothie

I've mentioned Green Smoothies here before, now it's time for the Purple Smoothie which also has a green, or at least blue-green, element to it with the addition of the spirulina.

The "superfoods" in this drink (antioxidant-rich blueberry and EFA-packed flaxseed oil ) ought to keep even Dr. Oz happy. It is very tasty. I get a touch of the spirulina taste, which doesn't bother me at all, but if you're not all that keen on algae, knock the powder down to about half the amount or omit it entirely.

Purple Smoothie

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 T flaxseed oil
  • 1 scoop Michael's Super Defense powder
  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I like vanilla flavored whey protein powder, but a soy protein powder ought to work for those who are vegan)

  1. Blend everything up until is is thick and creamy.

  2. Drink it down.
