cold, refreshing, sweet and healthy! perfect for a summer breakfast or afternoon treat!
Happy Fridayyyy! ... For me Friday is already a "Happy" day so what could make it even better? Bright colored food of course!
And when the bright food is healthy, that makes it just THAT much better!
So I'm sitting on my patio watching the pups play in the yard while enjoying my antioxidant packed smoothie and enjoying the sunshine while writing this post! In a little while we'll probably go for another walk, dogs are like children the more you exercise them the better they sleep at night lol so summer is just amazing because it means we walk 2-3 times a day!
So this smoothie is a great start to any morning is gives that extra boost of energy to wake up and get going!
This smoothie in particular is packed with berries! Berries are such a great source of antioxidants and so amazing for fighting free radicals in your body! Free radicals are caused on a daily basis from our work environment to the food we eat to just plain and simple the air quality we breathe! They play a big part in our over-all health, but not only that, they also contribute to how our skin looks! ... Now I'm no expert but I will tell ya what I know, there are a lot of people that will claim the appearance of our skin is a direct reflection of our internal health! ...I'm totally interested in this stuff 😉 ... I'm reading books by Kimberly Snyder right now and I am learning a lot! And pretty much obsessed with all the information her books contain! I really love her philosophy so if you've never read any of her books I highly recommend them, I have read 2 out of 3 and love them! ... Anyways back to the free radicals, there's no way to really avoid them so it's nice to be able to eat things that not only taste amazing but actually HELP our body fight, repair, nourish and protect from the inside out!
This smoothie is packed with antioxidants and tastes so sweet and fresh at the same time! I did use some fruit juice in here to give it a thicker+sweeter consistency but feel free to use just coconut water instead if you want because it's just as tasty as the recipe I listed!
I really hope you enjoy it and stay tuned for more because with my smoothie obsession this definitely won't be the last!
