You may take a glance at this smoothie and think we’ve made a mistake. Cauliflower, pineapples and grapes? But this unusual trio makes for one deliciously purple smoothie! With its sweet and tart taste, you’ll feel like you’re having candy for breakfast. And what could be better than that? Oh yeah, it’s also packed with maqui powder and flax seed, both of which provide a healthy dose of omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and fiber. For an extra frosty smoothie, freeze the grapes.
Fun food fact: Purple cauliflower becomes purple from the presence of the antioxidant anthocyanin, which is also found in red cabbage and red wine.
