Purple Superfoods Smoothie Recipe
Serves 2
I'm the first to admit skepticism about the term "superfoods"—I think all whole foods (and pizza slices and cheeseburgers) are pretty super when you come right down to it. But I still can't resist a healthy and delicious smoothie packed with some of the most-touted superfoods, including blueberries, almonds, and raw cacao. The cacao gives this drink a satisfying depth of flavor that rests beneath all the purple berry goodness. Raw cacao is quite bitter, so do use the dates or substitute a sweetener of your choice to balance it out.
