Guess the Secret Ingredient in this Gorgeous-Looking Smoothie!

This smoothie was another quirky experiment that turned out so much better than I expected! (see Khaki Kiwi Coconut Smoothie!Have You Tried Savoury Porridge Yet?Pink Oats, Anyone?Cauliflower Oats (Don’t Laugh, It’s a Thing!) and Zoats: Mark 2 (I like this one better!)).

img_3054Following my 16 days of juicing, I had some red cabbage left over that needed using up, so I decided to try it in a smoothie. I thought it might be bitter and make the smoothie a horrible dark colour like sump oil or something, but look at it, it’s gorgeous! And it tastes as lovely as it looks.

It might be a step too far for some of you, but you might be pleasantly surprised.

Red cabbage is full of nutrients including Vitamin C and K, and is well-known for its gut healing and antiflammatory, cancer prevention qualities. 

The smoothie also contains protein, healthy fats, probiotics, B Vitamins and fibre.

All measurements are very approximate, adjust to suit your own taste buds. This is definitely a ‘thinny’. Makes enough for 2 servings.

Vegan, Gluten-free, Organic where possible, cabbage and blueberries rinsed.

Add a pitted Medjool Date if you’re worried! I had it without.
