Purple Haze Shakeology

Purple Haze Shakeology

If you attended college, visited a college, or have even watched a movie with a vague college theme, then you’re aware of guitar legend Jimi Hendrix, whose cosmic visage has been adorning dorm room walls and promoting the sale of black lights for well over half a century.

While his impact on rock music is massive, from his blistering rendition of the “Star-Spangled Banner” at Woodstock to the influence he’s had on everyone from Prince to Metallica, the sad truth is that Hendrix didn’t take great care of himself, dying 44 years ago today at the age of 27 of asphyxia related to barbiturate overdose.

But with the health-consciousness that pervades the music industry nowadays (Stick with that yoga, Adam Levine!), we’d like to think that had Jimi been born a couple decades later, he might have made better choices. In turn, we might have had a few more albums like Are You Experienced? and Electric Ladyland to work out to. So in honor of what might have been, here’s a “psychedelic” twist on our favorite superfood nutrition source. The blueberries will strike an antioxidant power chord and the hemp is riff, I mean rife with fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and complete protein. Like, totally dig it, man.

(A tip of the multi-colored, fuzzy fedora to Beachbody Recipe Editor Wynne Nord for coming up with this groovy concoction.)
