Black Magic Smoothie

Last month’s Smoothie Club concoction was reportedly the favorite of some of our most loyal visitors. I wanted to hurry up and post it before these awesome fruits went out of season, so here it is!

Black Magic

  • Big handful of fresh organic blackberries (frozen works too)
  • 1 or 2 organic black mission figs
  • 2 or 3 whole kale leaves (more for a larger blender)
  • Big handful almonds
  • 1 tablespoon gogi berries
  • pinch of stevia (optional)
  • Coconut water
  • Almond milk
  • Ice (optional)

Blend it up and poof! You have a beautiful and tasty treat with cleverly hidden veggies and fiber.

I used wild blackberries — the seeds are smaller and blend up better — but use what you can find. This is a delicious treat and could even pass as a healthy dessert. Try sticking it  in the freezer for half an hour and eat it with a spoon!
