Green Smoothie Recipes With Blackberries
Blackberries aren’t an ingredient that I use often in green smoothie recipes. In general, my family is just not a big fan of them. However, this particular recipe won all of us over, despite the fact that blackberries are one of its primary ingredients. Even if you aren’t a huge fan of them yourself, I promise that you will like this smoothie. Besides, there are a lot of nutritional benefits to blackberries that we can all agree upon.
In terms of nutrition, blackberries are one of the most antioxidant rich fruits available today. They also contain a healthy amount of fiber. Certain elements of blackberries are currently being used in medical studies to test their efficiency as a protective property and their potential use as a therapeutic tool in treating certain types of cancer.
Blueberries are another antioxidant rich ingredient used in these green smoothie recipes. It is thought that the antioxidants that are found in blueberries can prevent both certain types of cancer and inflammation. They are also high in fiber. Between both types of fruit, this green smoothie is going to offer your body 20.9 grams of fiber. It will make a great addition to any weight loss program because of all the fiber it offers.
