Purple Power Smoothie

The sun was out this morning, so I decided that it was probably a good day for a smoothie. I wanted something sweet and choc-o-block full of veggies and fruits. The Purple Power Smoothie from DrFuhrman.com hit the spot. The best part of all? One smoothie has FIVE servings of fruits/veggies.

We buy bags of frozen fruit from Costco. The store sells bags of frozen blueberries, mixed berries, strawberries, and other fruit medleys. If you have the first three on hand, this should be a snap to pull together.
