This smoothie is berry good for your health, as it's packed with the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients and polyphenols found in raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. These properties help fight cancer, can help manage obesity, and benefit memory, brain health, and the nervous system.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cup berry mix
  • 1/2 Cup coconut milk
  • 1 Cup purified water
  • 1/8 Cup rolled oats

Directions

Blend everything together until you reach a smoothie consistency. The beauty of berries is their easy prep. Fresh berries need a rinse before going in, while frozen you just pop right in. When detoxing organic produce is always recommended.

Smoothie Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Smoothie Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
