Smoothies

Smoothies are a great way to pack a bunch of nutrients in to one glass and your options are endless. They are a terrific way to start out your day or to cap off a good work out. If you Google smoothie recipes you will find countless combinations to try and will certainly find a combination to suit your taste buds. But what can really put a smoothie over the top are the super foods that you add to it. In this smoothie for instance, I have used Flax Seeds for their fiber, lignans and Omega 3 content; chia seeds as a source of Omega 3s, fiber and calcium; Turmeric for anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits; and cactus juice and a frozen Acai Berry pouch for anti-oxidant benefits. So much yummy goodness!

Ingredients:

Cactus water
1 piece of Turmeric Root
1 Frozen Acia Berry pouch
1 scoop protein powder
1 handful of spinach
1 chunk of frozen pineapple
1 scoop of Chia seeds
2 scoops of flax seeds
