We all would like a strong immune system. Especially in the current climate, it is of the utmost importance to maintain a healthy balanced diet and ensure our immune system receives a boost.
Here's just a few benefits of our smoothie:
- Loaded with antioxidants
- High in fibre
- High in vitamin c
- Helps fight inflammation
- Good for your skin
Not only that we advise you guys to use frozen fruit as this packs in even more benefits. Studies have found more beneficial nutrients overall in the frozen samples, in everything from broccoli to blueberries. In fact, in two out of three cases, frozen fruits and veggies packed higher levels of antioxidants, including polyphenols, anthocyanins, lutein, and beta-carotene. This conclusion supports previous research, which found that freezing produce does not destroy its nutrients. In one report, the vitamin C content in fresh broccoli plummet by more than 50% with a week, but dipped by just 10% over an entire year when frozen.
With this in mind, we have created you an easy, delicious berry smoothie, under the guidance from Ellskitchen. In just under 5 minutes!
