We definitely need to integrate more fruits and vegetables in our diets. I’ve heard the saying that we need to eat “the rainbow” – eat food from all the colors of the rainbow throughout the day.
Let me give you an idea for purple… the BB Shake. I am sorry if I am turning into Rachael Ray naming the inventions I create in the kitchen. To be honest, I do it so I can keep track of them. Because if I’d name everything only by the main ingredients it contains, the picture folder names would be ultra long.
No matter how I name it or you want to call it, this shake is GOOD!!! The B’s come from the Banana and the Blueberries in the recipe. So it’s basically a Banana Blueberry Shake. You can make it vegan or not… just play around with the ingredients and enjoy a great breakfast drink full of antioxidants and potassium.
THE BB SHAKE
1 banana 1 handful of blueberries ¾ cup of pineapple juice ½ cup of yogurt or kefir – I use the plain kind, but vanilla would also work nicely A big squirt of agave nectar 2-3 cubes of ice
- Mix everything in a blender.
If you rather not consume anything dairy… this shake works equally well without the yogurt/kefir. If the shake is too think, add a bit of water or extra juice and it should loosen up.
