Eat (and Drink) the Rainbow Smoothie Recipe: Pleasantly Pretty Smoothie

Pleasant, pretty, and purple, this smoothie marks the end of the Eat (and Drink) the Rainbow smoothie series. It has been fun to come up with these smoothie recipes and I hope you have enjoyed them as much as I have.

A mixture of red raspberries and blue(-ish, they still look purple to me...)berries, along with purple cabbage, gives this tasty delight its beautiful hue. And each ingredient provides nutrients known to improve the elasticity, roughness, and tone of our skin. In addition to providing what our bodies need to be radiant and beautiful, it provides what it needs to be healthy.

If you are looking for an excellent source of vitamins A, B6, C, and K, thiamin, magnesium, potassium, and manganese, you have found it here. Pleasantly Pretty also packs a good amount of riboflavin, niacin, folate, calcium, iron, phosphorus, and copper. Not too shabby.
