Here’s one of my favorite ways to start the day, or follow a hard workout a Purple Power Smoothie. I love the detoxifying and energizing nutrients this smoothie promises! It’s rich in vitamins and minerals, antioxidants and fiber, with extra Omega 3’s. The bit of beet that I add also increases the already rich enzyme content for better digestion throughout the day. What’s your favorite smoothie flavor? This is the blender the we use to make our smoothies. The Vitamix 1782 TurboBlend, 2-Speed
