It's Good to Get Some Green

Black raspberries are full of flavor, and also give smoothies a great berry color.  One of the benefits of this is you can add a variety of healthy vegetables into your smoothies without ending up with something too bitter or off-color.  If you want to sneak in some extra veggies into someone's smoothie, this recipe would certainly do the trick (not that we advocate such things).

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup Orange Juice
  • 1 loosely packed cup of kale or spinach
  • ¾ cup or 6 oz plain or flavored Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons Black Raspberry Powder OR ⅓ cup Whole Black Raspberries OR 1 teaspoon Black Raspberry Extract
  • ½ cup frozen berries
  • 1 frozen or fresh banana
  • Ice cubes if you like
  • Honey if you like

Directions:

In the order listed above, put all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. You can always add some more juice if your smoothie is too thick.  A great way to start your day or give you an energy boost in the afternoon!
