Would you like the benefits of a green smoothie without it being green?
The deep color of blackberries rules in this smoothie.
This morning, quite by chance, I blended up a neat combination that included a couple of bright green stalks of kale, apple juice, banana and blackberries. The resulting smoothie is royal purple in color without a trace of bitter kale flavor.
1 cup apple juice
1 frozen banana
1 cup blackberries
2 stalks of kale, curly leaves only - no stems
1/2 cup of water (if needed to thin it out)
I suspect the sweetness of the apple juice contributes a good deal to the smooth, sweet flavor.
