Red Cabbage Smoothie

While searching for a recipe to use up my extra red cabbage, this odd-sounding Red Cabbage Smoothie caught my eye. Red cabbage, strawberries, and orange juice definitely seemed like a weird combination, but I had all the ingredients available and decided to give it a try.

I really enjoyed it and so did Evan. It was a great way to give him some extra nutrients. Chad said there was a red cabbage aftertaste, but I didn’t notice it. I’m not sure if it was just in his head after telling him the ingredient list or if he was able to detect it better than me. Make sure to blend the ingredients until completely smooth.
