Have you read my post about the AMAZING benefits of antioxidants?!

If you're up for learning something new that can help you have bright and glowing skin, fight off diseases, and even prevent cancer, I highly suggest reading it!

But if you're just here for the smoothie recipe, keep on scrolling! :)

So what makes this an antioxidant smoothie?

Blueberries: The main source of antioxidants in this smoothie, blueberries are actually one of the top 10 antioxidant rich foods you can eat!

Pomegranate: Not as high in antioxidants as blueberries, but still a great source to combat free radicals that are causing wrinkles and signs of aging!

Black Chia Seeds: These tiny seeds actually possess more antioxidant activity than blueberries! Not sure if you like chia seeds? Try mixing them into the smoothie as opposed to using them as a topping. You won't even be able to taste them!

Mango: This fruit falls low on the antioxidant scale, but I included it because it is one of my favorite fruits! It also gives the smoothie natural sweetness. If you aren't a mango fanatic like I am, try substituting it with a banana or peach!

 

 

INGREDIENTS

1 cup blueberries

1/2 cup frozen mango chunks

1/2 cup pomegranate

1/2 cup milk (I use coconut milk because it is dairy free, low in calories, and makes my smoothie taste like a tropical drink!)

1/4 cup chia seeds (optional)

 

DIRECTIONS

 

Wash your fresh fruit with an all natural fruit and veggie wash. I use Green Melody All Mineral Fruit & Veggie Wash. 

Next, measure out your ingredients and add them all into your blender. If you want to use chia seeds, they can either be added in and blended or used as a topping. 

Blend all ingredients until smooth.

Add fresh fruit or seeds as toppings.

Enjoy!
