Super Antioxidant Smoothie
In the midst of our busy lives, we are all looking for a quick way to get energy. With all the healthy resolution kick-offs, smoothies are an easy way to help burst your energy and daily nutrients in the New Year. Antioxidants are desired nutrients that help ward off free radicals from attacking the body’s cells, and after the Holidays, our bodies feel ran down and in need of an antioxidant boost. This Super Antioxidant smoothie is a favorite of mine. It contains berries, pomegranate juice and matcha green tea powder for antioxidants and protein powder to keep you satisfied. The green tea boosts energy levels as well, so it is perfect for a mid afternoon boost, or in the morning to wake up.
