Antioxidant Overload Smoothie


I am so so excited to share this recipe with you! This is my favorite fruit-based smoothie and it is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up! Skip the mid-afternoon coffee or sugary snack and instead make this smoothie! I also will make this smoothie for my lunch, especially during the Spring and Summer! It is super refreshing, hydrating, and again, NUTRIENT DENSE!

Lets talk about antioxidants because this smoothie has a TON of them! Antioxidants fight free radicals found in the body. Free radicals cause cancer and other diseases and so its super important that we are fueling our bodies with lots of antioxidants! Acai, blueberries, and cacao all have antioxidants in them which makes this smoothie super powerful in cleansing and filling your body with what it NEEDS! 



Antioxidant Overload Smoothie

-1 packet of acai

-1 handful of frozen blueberries

-1 handful of frozen strawberries

-half a frozen banana

-1 cup almond milk

-1 teaspoon chia seeds

-1 teaspoon bee pollen OR flaxseed

-1 tablespoon cacao nibs (if you couldn’t tell, I put cacao nibs on EVERYTHING!)

Optional: 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or flaxseed

Blend for 30 seconds & enjoy!! Let me know what you think of this recipe! Tag me on Instagram and use the hashtag #livewellwithsmoothies so I can show you some love!

Have a great day, everyone!
