The Daily Shake: “Black Hole” Version

I made a black shake today. Black. You are reading that correctly.

Sweet Jesus, it’s the ugliest shake I’ve ever made. But, you know I wouldn’t post a shake recipe here if it didn’t taste good, so take my word for it.

I’m not posting photos because I don’t want to scare you.

Shake Theory

Unlike most of my smoothies, this one does not contain protein powder. The intention behind it wasn’t to make a well-rounded meal replacement – instead, I just wanted to pulverize and quickly consume a bunch of fruits and vegetables. It’s a great way to quickly get a big hit of fiber, vitamins, anti-oxidants, and greens. All you have to do is add, pulverize and glug, glug, glug.


1 c. frozen berry mix

.75 c strawberries

1 c. grapes

.5 c Broccoli

1 c. Kale

1 tbsp Spirulina (this is what makes it black)

.75 c. Unsweetened almond milk

Additional water as needed to get desired consistency

Optional: sweetener (agave, brown rice syrup, stevia or splenda) The fruit in this smoothie has a lot of work to do to overcome the kale and broccoli and I find that adding just a little sweetener is perfect.

You end up with 2 servings of cruciferous vegetables, 3 servings of fruit and one hit of pow-pow-powerful sea green punch.
