I wanted to share this great green smoothie recipe I came up with. Excuse the name, I had nothing and it was the best I could come up with. I did try out a couple of different options for names, but this is it Purple Rain.
This one came about as a bit of an experiment to use up some left over fruit and veg I had in the fridge prior to heading to the shops and turned out pretty rad so thought confident enough to share with the world.
Directions to make Purple Rain, the not so “Green” Smoothie.
In your juicer put the following:
- 5 Purple Carrots *
- 3 Orange Carrots
The result is a really deep rich purple carrot juice, now set that aside. Be careful not to spill cause I don’t think the colour will come out to easy.
In your blender goes the following:
- 1 Kiwi Fruit (peeled)
- 1Lime (peeled)
- 1 Stick of Celery (I include the leaves gives a bit of zing)
- Handful of frozen blackberries
- Carrot juice you previously made
Blend it all well, the frozen fruit will thicken the mixture up really nicely.
Would be keen to hear your thoughts on this recipe, who knows you may inspire me to make some more.
* You could use a 2 medium fresh beetroots. I will re-do Purple Rain with beetroot and post the results.
