    Deep Purple Smoothie

    This drink is almost too pretty to sip. And even better, it sneaks in a serving of antioxidant-rich red cabbage, which adds to this smoothie’s stunning shade without making it taste too, well, cabbage-y. In this drink, it’s blended with tangy kefir, sweet-tart blueberries, and chia seeds, which supply ample amounts of fibre and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
