Deep Purple Smoothietude

So I just entered the “Show Me Your Smoothietude Contest” over at Kathy Patalsky’s Happy Healthy Life blog… how fun! The whole idea is to show off your ‘tude in a photo with your favorite smoothie. I chose this Deep Purple Smoothie because I love blueberries and grapes AND the color purple 🙂

Not many ingredients in this nutrient-rich smoothie… here you go.


  • 2 cups frozen black grapes (seedless and organic)
  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 4 large kale leaves
  • 1 ½ cups coconut water
  • 2 TBS flax meal


  • Blend and serve!
Makes 2 large smoothies. Enjoy!
Shadow isn’t a smoothie fan, but he always tries to
steal my greens out of the fridge!

Stealing bok choy… his favorite. Haha!
Healthy smoothie trails,

    What beautiful photos, Helen, and a beautiful smoothie too! You really shine through. Love the shot of the cat sneaking greens! Good luck with the contest. From one "deep purple" food fan to another. 🙂

    I really need to try grapes in a smoothie, it sounds so refreshing! Also: love the sprig of Astilbe in your pocket – one of my favorite flowers 🙂
