The Purple Cow
A smoothie with a difference
First up is my favourite smoothie recipe. It's called a Purple Cow, and I love the name as well as the flavour. If I ever had a Raw Food cafe that's what I'd call it - The Purple Cow...who knows...maybe one day!
1 chopped, frozen banana
1/2 cup of frozen or fresh blueberries
1 cup of milk - raw dairy, rice or oat milk or maybe a nutmilk.
(I don't recommend soy milk.)
Whizz in your Vita-mix or blender until smooth and a gorgeous purple colour. Add more milk if needed. For extra nutrition you could add a handful of spinach or other green; it will dull the pretty purple a little but you won't taste the green. I prefer to use frozen bananas because I love the icecream texture.
Serves two (or one very hungry person!). If you have kids you'd better get used to making a bigger recipe otherwise you won't get much.
