Antioxidant Blast Smoothie

Antioxidant Blast Smoothie with blueberries, spinach, pomegranate, and chia seeds.

Antioxidant Blast Smoothie

Did you know that blueberries are not only packed with antioxidants and vitamins like K and C, but they’ve also been shown to improve brain health, cognitive function, and improve memory? They’re rated low on the glycemic index chart, which means that consuming them will not significantly raise your blood sugar levels. Plus, they have cancer-fighting properties, anti-inflammatory properties, and a single 1 Cup serving will give you 14% of your daily fiber intake. Now that’s a super berry!

Antioxidant Blast Smoothie

Spinach is another superfood with just 1 cup of it delivering 20% of the recommended daily value of fiber and over 300% of your daily intake of vitamin A. I’m not sure if you were aware, but vitamin A is a major contributor to skin health and moisture retention and is even shown to help lessen the appearance of wrinkles (I could use some of that!). Spinach also has anti-inflammatory properties and has been linked with lowering blood pressure.

Antioxidant Blast Smoothie

Pomegranates are pretty well-known by now for being an antioxidant-rich superfood that tastes incredible, but they’ve also been shown to lower cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and to increase the release of serotonin (the chemical responsible for feelings of happiness) to your brain. A heart helper and a mood booster all in one!

Antioxidant Blast Smoothie

Chia seeds are in a class all their own. The list of benefits is a long one and includes being high in Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, and minerals such as calcium, manganese, and magnesium. They have also been linked to reducing bad cholesterol, reducing inflammation, and regulating blood sugar levels.

So, on top of this antioxidant smoothie tasting 100% delicious, it is truly a health boosting treat to enjoy at any time of the day. It works wonderfully as a detox drink. Consider adding some green tea to give it an extra lift in detox and anti-inflammatory power!
