Introduction: Keep Doctor Away Purple Smoothie

This is a super easy, super healthy and super delicious recipe and it's purple.

Place the following ingredients in the order of the below list in a blender:

1 Cup orange juice
2 Sticks of celery, washed and chopped
3 Medium strawberries, washed, stem removed
1/3 Cup fat free plain yogurt
1 Cup, slightly shy, frozen blueberry, washed

Pulse a few times to let the materials distribute evenly, blend at High and Smoothie setting; or follow your blender's instruction for making smoothie.

This recipe makes exactly 2 cups. It's cool and medium thick. If you want colder drink in hot summer, add ice. If you want thicker smoothie, add 1 banana per two cups' batch. If you need to make more or less cups of smoothie, feel free to scale up or down.

The acidity from all the ingredients sets the right PH for a beautiful delicious purple color. Depending on the substitute ingredients you use, it may be pink, green, brown or blue. I like the taste and color most when it's purple.

Give it a try on a daily basis. Keep doctor away. And vote.

Not really. I have always used kale which makes the color dark till I ran out of it recently and had to use celery as substitute. As a result it gave the beautiful purple color. I love this color and the taste of yogurt at the end of it.
