There’s something to that phrase: eating a rainbow. Our reds, greens, oranges and yellow are pretty easy to come across. But purple? Blue? How many of us are guilty of avoiding these antioxidant rich foods?

The same cautions still apply– it’s not entirely authentic, but this homemade version is still tasty and you can make it with only a few simple ingredients.
