Almond Antioxidant Smoothie

Almond Antioxidant Smoothie recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Dark tart cherries, blueberries, pomegranate arils, red raspberries and strawberries are blended together with almond milk, vanilla and a bit of honey to create this antioxidant packed smoothie. While I was grocery shopping last week, I reached for my usual bag of frozen berries and I saw a new mixed fruit bag next to it. This "Antioxidant Blend" sounded so delicious, I picked it up instead.

Even in the midst of chilly weather, there are days, especially Mondays following a long, fun weekend full of excellent foods, all I want for breakfast is a light flavor-packed smoothie. This is my version of a detox meal and even without the greens that I typically load into my smoothies, this smoothie leaves me feeling great. My kids inhaled theirs in minutes and requested this smoothie again the next day.

  3. This is one thick smoothie! Tasty! I love to drink smoothies all day long! I just don't know if I can last a day with only a smoothie in my tummy. It sure is healthy and packs you with all the energy that you need for the day. Sometimes, people drink their smoothie with whey protein. This will work best if you're working out. I think, if you drink whey protein and don't pair it with exercise, you'll just be putting on weight, instead of losing some.
