Red Velvet Smoothie
By Susan Arruda
Carries a great shot of Manganese and Vitamin C, along with intense flavour!
YIELD: 2 servings
1 cup raspberries (or strawberries, pitted cherries or combination), fresh or frozen*
1 large cube of seedless watermelon equivalent to approximately 1 cup (freeze for 60 mins. or longer prior to making, if desired)
1/2 cup pure unsweetened pomegranate juice (or cranberry juice)
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
Optional: Add 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder for a protein boost

*Frozen fruit is desirable when making smoothies as it adds to the chill factor as well as making it thicker.
