Blackberry Superfood Frappe

Oh my, I had this for breakfast today! It’s also a fantastic 1-minute snack. Blackberries are refreshing and loaded with anti-oxidant compounds. Protein powder gives this treat the holding power of a full meal. It was such a pretty color that I enhanced it with beet. Beets are a unique source of betaine, an anti-inflammatory food to improve circulation and protect against cancer. Anyway WOW! It was delicious! If you use one of the zero-carb sweetener options, you’ll give your blood sugar a break as well. I restrained myself today and didn’t do the Dark Chocolate Variation below. Next time I’ll go all the way… Serves 1.
