deep purple smoothie

I know it’s cold in Austin today, y’all, but I still need some nutrients after eating leftover mashed potatoes and stuffing for days on end! Even though there’s plenty of greens in here, the pomegranate and blueberries in this smoothie turned it a lovely purple.

Deep Purple Smoothie

1 c. almond milk

1/4 c. frozen blueberries

1/4 c. frozen mango chunks

3 frozen peach slice

1 handful greens (or about 1 cup loosely packed)

1 banana

1/4 c. pecans

2 tbsp hemp protein powder

1/2 of a pomegranate

(Postscript: The pomegranate seeds made this smoothie kind of chunky, even though I blended it thoroughly. I’m sure this smoothie would be perfectly delicious without them, or you could substitute some pomegranate juice for the almond milk. Yum.)
