If you’re up for learning something new that can give you bright and glowing skin, fight off diseases, and even prevent cancer head over to my post on all of the benefits of antioxidants. But if you’re just here for the antioxidant 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!
Antioxidant Smoothie Recipe
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)
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.
