Free radicals stress our body with 1,000’s of hits a day; they don’t take a holiday! At least once a week I give my body an antioxidant fix to help protect it from disease. And this smoothie does the trick as it’s packed with antioxidants from the berries, beetroot and superfood powders: acai and maqui. As an alternative, you can use 2 cups of frozen berries and omit the frozen banana. It is ok to omit the either acai or maqui powder.
Health benefits –
· Maqui (mah’ key) berries have the highest known level of antioxidants, which help free the body of damaging free radicals that can actually cause premature ageing and disease. Its mild flavour is easily mixed with other foods.
· Acai berries are rich in amino acids and fatty acids, and are full of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins.
