Atomic Purple Smoothie

Good afternoon!

Today's smoothie did something interesting, it changed colors! The smoothie started off as a berry red/pink while being blended and progressively got darker until it was a very bright purple color. I'm guessing it was the berries that made this happen but I wonder why it took about half an hour for the color to fully develop!

Already starting to purple up in the last picture!

  • 1 handful kale
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 cup pineapple  (I used canned)
  • 8 oz coconut milk
  • 8 oz water
  • 2 tbs protein
  • 2 tsp flax seeds
  • 2 tsp Very Green
Overall, a very tasty and pretty smoothie! There were a lot of seeds which I think is probably because of the raspberries and blackberries in the frozen mix I had. And of course, adding flax seeds didn't help either. Here's the awesome purple after it oxidized some:

The color has since deepened to a darker blue-purple and is very pretty. At this rate, I'm expecting to get mutant super powers from this smoothie!
