This is it! The sixth and final fruit and veggie smoothie in our “sip the rainbow” series. Here is a recap…
Orange: Peaches and Cream Smoothie

So many healthy smoothies nowadays incorporate some sort of leafy green into the blend. I’ve tried spinach and kale, and they were both great. That’s when I started browsing around the produce section for other ideas. I stumbled upon a beautiful head of purple radicchio I thought, why not?!
I blended it with blackberries (raspberries also taste great) as well as some pomegranate juice. Chia seeds are all the rage right now and they are a great addition to smoothies. I threw in a tablespoon and the result was nothing short of magic!
Sure, you may be addicted to your “green drinks” but just wait until you try this purple Superfood Smoothie! After one sip I think you will agree. Purple is the new Green!
1 cup Radicchio leaves
3/4 cup Pomegranate juice
1/2 cup Blackberries
1 tablespoon Chia seeds
1 cup ice
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
