Purple Power Blueberry Smoothie (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

This Purple Power Blueberry Smoothie is packed with purple plant-powered antioxidant compounds, by way of wild blueberries, purple sweet potatoes, red chard, beet juice, and flax seeds. Blueberries are particularly potent in anthocyanins, compounds linked with disease protection. Plus, I love adding them to smoothies because their royal purple shade and sweet flavor can overshadow the strong tastes of added greens. Everyone will love this 100% plant-based smoothie!

In this smoothie, those slow-digesting carbs, plant proteins, and healthy fats make this smoothie a meal in one or powerful snack or recovery drink. Plus it’s creamy, zesty and downright delicious.
