Purple Love Smoothie - all u need in one smoothie: Fruit, veggies, seeds for protein & omega 3's

What’s there to write about a smoothie? It’s fresh. It’s healthy. It contains a lot of fruit, veggies & good stuff…ย This is my 1. smoothie post on the blog and I’m just a little clueless. But I’ll just start anyway.

Every morning, my little son and I drinkย a fresh smoothie together. That’s our first thing of the day and a morning ritual, so to speak, and we really enjoy it every day. Indeed, I totally miss my smoothie when I can’t drink it for some reason (like on vacation). Mostly our smoothies are green (hello kale, lettuce, spinach & Co. ๐Ÿ’š), but this particularly beautiful one has this bright & radiant magenta and is the perfect colorful start to your day.

The recipe was a lucky strike for real. Mostly I just throw various fruit and vegetables in my blender and usually the result is something quite delicious. But such an awesome color is seldom. Probably because I normally use my green super powders (chlorella & barley grass), but today I just skipped them. Well done, Romy!

But this smoothie isn’t only pleasing for the eye, oh no, your body & health will absolutely approve too.

Cauliflower and beetroot supply you with many minerals (including calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron & manganese). Blueberries provide plenty of vitamin C & E. Bananas contain potassium, magnesium & vitamin B6. Hemp seeds & chia are packed with precious omega 3 fatty acids. And pumpkin seeds not only saturate, but also bring iron into the smoothie (always important, but especially in a purely plant-based diet).

With a large glass of my Purple Love Smoothie you are well cared for and can start your new day full of energy. Anyways, it’s delicious too, of course. Wonderfully creamy, with a fruity sweetness (the riper your bananas, the sweeter your smoothie), and you would never guess the veggies it contains.

Give it a try soon & enjoy some Purple Love. ๐Ÿ’œ

Ingredients
  • 1 small beetroot, peeled & diced*
  • 3-4 florets of cauliflower, frozen
  • 2 ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1 apple, cored
  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup plant milk (I used rice milk)
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 Tbsp soaked chia seeds**
  • 1 Tbsp hemp hearts
Instructions
  1. Add the prepared fruits and vegetables to your high-speed blender, followed by the rice milk and seeds.

  2. Cover and mix well on a high level until everything is creamy. My mixer has a special "Veggie Smoothie" program that runs for almost 2 minutes at different speeds.

    I guess that after 2 minutes your delicious Purple Love Smoothie is ready anyway. Divide into 2 glasses and enjoy.

Notes
* I always prepare several beets at once and freeze the cubes in a Tupper box. This way you can take the desired amount as needed very quickly and without discolored fingers.
ย 
** It's best to simply soak 2 Tbsp of chia seeds with 1/4 cup of water in a sealable glass in the fridge overnight. Then you have a supply for the next 3-4 days.
ย 
I always choose organic produce whenever possible. Itโ€˜s not only better for my health (and yours, too), but also for our environment. ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’š
