The color of this deep, velvety black smoothie—sure to appeal to your inner goth—testifies to the formidable quantities of phytochemicals it contains. The dark-hued fruits and vegetables on the ingredients list for this witchy smoothie get their striking pigmentation from high concentrations of compounds linked to health benefits like lowering your chances of developing cancer and heart disease. We’d call that hardcore!
And, of course, the recipe wouldn’t be complete without a generous serving of activated charcoal that guarantees the exact blacker-than-black shade you’d want for your Halloween smoothie, and cleanses your system of any lingering toxins. It all adds up to a truly goth smoothie.
