Why, you ask, is the spaghetti black? It’s not squid ink pasta… Actually, it’s spaghetti made out of black beans! It actually looks more like noodles than it is spaghetti, but it is a box I came across while shopping at Costco.
Look at all that beta carotene. Stunning colour, right? I love smoothies. I can put anything I want, and I can feel good about drinking them. You can get creative, and add all sorts of fruits and veggies.
