Purple Smoothie

Anyone who has taken elementary school art knows that red and blue make purple. For this smoothie, a rich purple colour was the goal so I started with blueberries and sweet cherries. The flavour wasn’t quite there so I added some mango. That did the trick. I maintained the colour I needed for the theme in my school snack program, but also got a better flavour.
