Antioxidant Berry Blast

Healthy Breakfast Smoothies - Antioxidant Blend

Well I was making a Costco run the other day cause I was all out of frozen strawberries for my healthy breakfast smoothies and much to my dismay so was Costco! Was totally bummed but then this bag of mixed berries caught my eye, ‘Organic Antioxidant Blend. Its full of antioxidant rich berries such as strawberries, blueberries, cherries, raspberries (without the annoying seeds) and pomegranate. So I picked it up to give it a try and it has become one of my favorite smoothie mixes.

  • 1 1/2 Cups of Antioxidant Blend
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Cup of Goodbelly Blueberry Acai
  • any other little additives (I put in a packet of Amazing Grass )

Thats it! Tastes awesome and very healthy. Want another great taste switch the Goodbelly Blueberry with the Goodbelly Mango. Mmmmmm love that one

Pink and Tart Refreshing Smoothie

Pink Tart SmoothieSpring is here and Summer is around the corner. Time to start thinking of smoothies to cool you down during the day as well as to get you going in the morning. This breakfast smoothie will be sure to do both with all the red berry goodness in it. Be sure to add your favorite additive such as flaxseed or even some baby spinach (although it my not be as pink after it).

  • 1-1/2 Cup of frozen strawberries
  • 1 Cup of frozen raspberries
  • 3/4 Cup or real organic cranberry juice (make sure pure and no additives)
  • 1 Cup Greek Vanilla Yogurt

With the raspberries you can try puree’ them first then running through a strainer to get rid of much of the seeds. As much as I enjoy the raspberries, the seeds always ruin it for me. This will make 2-3 servings (unless your servings are like mint then maybe 1 or 2)

Pom-Berry Breakfast Smoothie

POM Wonderful Pomegranate JuiceI was wandering around costco the other day and ran across this big bottle of POM pomegranate juice and thought, hmmm that would be good in a smoothie. Pomegranate juice is packed with antioxidants, in fact more than any other juice. Studies have shown that pomegranate juice may help prevent hardening of the arteries as well as protect you from heart disease, cholesterol and even stress! The great thing about POM is its 100% pomegranate juice, nothing else, so makes a great healthy and natural smoothies additive. This is what I threw together the other day and in fact have had it a couple times since its so good.

1 1/2 Cup POM wonderful juice
1 Banana
1 Cup frozen strawberries
1/2 Cup frozen cranberries
1/2 Cup frozen raspberries
1 Tablespoon rice vanilla protein powder (optional)

Mix in blender for 30-60 seconds till smooth. Makes about 2 large glasses of a delicious tangy berry smoothie
