It’s Sunday, I’m rocking out to Jimi and feeling inspired. I may even do something wild & crazy, like more video editing. But first, I need a some liquid sustenance. The texture of this smoothie is big part of what makes it perfect for me. Using frozen fruit and no ice makes the consistency super duper creamy. None of the flavor is diluted from ice, so the natural sweetness from the fruit and the tang from the coconut yogurt really stand out. Add magical ingredients like maca, chia, spirulina to bump up the nutrition in this antioxidant rich meal-in-a-cup.
Excuse me while I kiss the sky…
Purple Haze Smoothie
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 1 minute
Keywords: blender smoothie dairy free gluten-free soy-free nut-free vegan vegetarian blueberries Raw summer spring
Ingredients (about 32oz ( 2 tall glasses))
- 1 cup plant-based milk
- 1/2 cup vanilla coconut yogurt
- 2 cups frozen organic blueberries
- 1 large frozen banana
- 3 mandarins, peeled
- I always use organic ingredients when available but make a special point to use organic berries exclusively.Conventional berries tend to test very high for pesticide residue
Combine all ingredients in a VitaMix. Blend on high speed for 60 seconds.Use tamper as needed.No need to add ice, the frozen fruit should keep this pleasantly cool.Serve immediately.
*If you do not have 2HP blender, you may need to use non-frozen ingredients and add ice at the end.Ice will dilute the flavor slightly.
