Red/Purple Cabbage and Berry Breakfast Smoothie


Okay, I did this…..I put cabbage in your smoothie.  I swear you probably think I have lost all my marbles even considering cabbage for a smoothie….Don’t stone me, trust me… And, I put in the nice cabbage, the pretty colourful red one….just for a change. Or is it purple?  Aubergine like colour? Burgundy? I don’t know, personally I don’t think it is red or purple, often it is called red….but whatever, just something in between, but who cares so long as it is super cool and super pretty. Sorry if the cabbage thing has put you off, but it is good for you.

So, the moral of the story is, if you have a bit of red/purple,burgundy or aubergine colour cabbage left or if you see those little baby ones in the store or at the market, bomb it into a smoothie, add an apple and a banana and some berries and you have this smoothie of note !!!!

  1. Cabbage? Okay, I’ll try it! Ha ha. We’ve been enjoying your smoothy recipes, Lynn, including adding quinoa. 3-4 times a week it’s our dinner (lots of raw veggies and no meat). Feeling lighter already! Lol. Thanks for the idea.

  2. Genius. It creates a purple/lavender presentation (lavender is a stress reducer as well) and a great source of PRE-biotics to feed the PRO-biotics in our microbiome. Through osmosis, I am feeling the healthy benefits right through my computer screen!! 🙂
    Well done.
