Green Smoothie Recipes For Antioxidants
If you are searching for green smoothie recipes that will provide you with antioxidants, then you have come to the right place! This recipe harnesses the power of berries to create a green smoothie that is nutritionally sound and has an exotic, flavorful taste.
One of the primary ingredients in these green smoothie recipes is Goji berries. They offer a healthy source of calories and protein. Other ingredients in this green smoothie recipe include mulberries and golden berries. Depending on where you live, these items can sometimes be difficult to find. However, I can usually find them at my local health food store. I also like to include acai puree in these green smoothie recipes, but you can use a handful of actual acai berries if you can’t find puree.
For me, these green smoothie recipes are a great source of energy throughout the day. This recipe makes about 20 ounces of smoothie, but you can easily double the ingredients if you need to make more. On a side note, soaking the mulberries and Goji berries in water before adding them to your blender will soften them and make them easier to blend.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make these green smoothie recipes:
- 1 medium banana, peeled
- 1 100 gram pouch of frozen acai puree
- 1/3 cup goji berries (soaked for 30 minutes)
- 1/3 cup mulberries (soaked for 30 minutes)
- 1/3 cup golden berries (does not need to be soaked)
- 6 ounces of almond milk
- 1-2 handfuls of baby green spinach
To start, add your liquid to the blender first. Next, add in the soft fruits and blend it all together on high for about 45 seconds. Finally, add in your leafy green vegetables last, and blend them together for another 60 seconds. Now, it’s time to enjoy!
