Recipe: Purple people pleaser smoothie

Looks great, tastes great and easy to make. Recipe found in “Complete Idiot’s Guide to Vegan Cooking” by Beverly Lynn Bennett and Ray Sammartano. If you use completely fresh berries, you may want to add the ice to make it colder. I used a mixture of fresh and frozen berries but also added the ice.
Ground flaxseeds can be found in healthfood shops. The frozen berries and juice can be found in supermarkets and healthfood shops but aim for the unsweetened ones.
I found this recipe to be just fine but if you want it sweeter, I suggest putting in a little bit of agave syrup which you can find in healthfood shops.
Makes enough for two servings.

What you will need:
1 ½ fresh or frozen berries (blueberries, strawberries and raspberries)
1 cup soy or other non-dairy milk
½ cup fresh or frozen cherries, pitted
½ cup pomegranate or cranberry juice
1 tbsp ground flaxseeds
½ cup ice cubes (optional)

Place berries, non-dairy milk cherries, juice and flaxseeds in a blender and blend for 1 minute or until smooth.
Add ice cubes and blend for 1 minute or until smooth. (Optional)
