Berry boost smoothie

I woke up today craving something juicy and boosting so created this beautiful elixir…

We’re coming into the very very end of berry season in UK and I’d run out of elderberries or I’d have put some of those in here too… Of course with the change if season we will be using frozen berries… Stick to organic where you can!

Berries are the most incredible superfoods! They contain anthocyanins (from the pigments) that fight oxidative stress (antioxidant) and are associated with a lowered risk of cancer as well as other chronic inflammatory conditions like heart disease. They also Contain catechins and quercetin which are flavanols that also support the antioxidant system and have shown to be anti-cancerous. Plus they have a range of other phytochemicals that promote health and wellbeing!

I’ve packed this smoothie recipe with other immune and hormone boosting foods as well as gut and liver cleansing herbs and foods! Enjoy
