Red Cabbage Smoothies

 

These magical drinks will have you feeling awesome and energized!

I have been using red cabbage in my cooking and in my smoothies over the past two months and I know it is aiding in my overall health. I can feel it! It is very affordable. extremely nutritious and can be used in salads, casseroles or smoothies 😉 I buy one head of cabbage and use 1/2 of it fresh in salads or dinner dishes and then cut and freeze the rest.

Some of you may be thinking gross….it has such a strong taste so how can THAT be good? When you add kale and spinach you can’t taste it so it is the same theory. Trust me.

I will prove it to you!
