Blueberry and Acai Berry Smoothie with Mango Juice

0

It is the attack of the superfruits. Blueberry and Acai berry together pack quite the nutritional wallop. Acai is an expensive ingredient so when you use it, make it count, I say. So this smoothie is particularly tasty and worth the cost for a treat. If you can buy acai berry puree for less money, in bulk, at stores like Costco, Sam’s Club or BJ’s Warehouse, go for it.

Purple smoothies are particularly healthy and this smoothie is the color of Barney the Dinosaur so you know its good for you. But you may not be familiar with the healthy benefits of acai in your smoothie.

Acai berries contain some very good things called anthocyanins and flavonoids. Take a look at the links to read more.

Anthocyanins and flavonoids extremely strong antioxidants that take the fight to the damage that daily stress causes in our bodies. They also help strengthen cell protection in your body by fighting free radicals. Free radicals are damaging byproducts created by the body. Eating a healthy diet, or drinking a smoothie, that is full of antioxidants can help in our fight against aging and diseases by removing these destructive free radicals.

In essence, any food with antioxidants can be helpful when trying to reduce the destructive force of free radicals; antioxidants may help reduce the risk of some of life’s worst diseases, such as cancer and heart disease, two of the leading killer’s in the world.
