Purple Fruit Smoothie

Unsweetened cranberry juice contains 13 micro grams of vitamin K (14% of the daily value for women, 10% for men), but many of us find it too tart to drink on its own. Blend it with a nondairy milk, blueberries, cherries, and a banana, however, and you get all of the nutrition in a sweeter,purple-hued drink that is much less tart.

Preparation :

  • 1 banana, halved½ cup (120 ml) ice cubes

Place all the ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid. Select Variable 1. Turn the machine on and slowly increase the speed to Variable 10, then to High. Blend for30 seconds.
