Wait what? What do these ‘antioxidants’ do?

Great question. The Antioxidants are compounds that literally destroy the ‘free radicals’ before they are able to do any damage to your body.

But where do the antioxidants come from?

This smoothie contains two superfoods – acai and cacao. These are the source of the anitoxidants.

The thing is, acai berries have loads of antioxidants. They ave more antioxidants than nearly all other foods with high levels of these compounds (like raspberries etc).

But then we come to Cacao beans which have even more antioxidants than acai. On top of that, the other ingredients in this recipe contain antioxidants too (the goji berries and bee pollen.)

So then, as I’m sure you’ve figured out this is the ultimate antioxidant smoothie. Lets learn how to make it.
