Topping the list of antioxidant rich foods is blueberries. They are full of flavonoids which help fight disease by ridding the body of free radicals. Additionally, this smoothie is full of manganese and potassium which are two minerals that are difficult to get enough of in food form. Did you know that you should have 5000mg of potassium per day? A medium sized banana (the most potassium rich food) has only 400mg! Now I am not suggesting that you eat 12 bananas a day, but I do suggest you check out this smoothie and eat more fruits and veggies!
Home-made almond milk tastes shockingly different from store-bought; it is super almond-y. Plus home-made does not have all the sugars and stabilizers that store-bought has. It only takes a few seconds in the blender and voila, almond milk that is rich in vitamin E, manganese and omega-6.
This smoothie is a great source of vitamin C (orange), vitamin A & K (spinach), calcium (yogurt, orange and spinach), vitamin D & B12 (coconut milk) and folate (all of the above). So drink up and feel good about yourself for getting the nutrients your body needs.
