Antioxidant POWERHOUSE Smoothie

20130201-162547.jpg
Antioxidants help us fight those free radicals we are exposed to every day! Different foods have different levels of antioxidants. I created this smoothie to give you a major antioxidant boost so that you can look and feel great!

Blueberries, pomegranates, and strawberries rank high on the list of antioxidant rich fruits, and believe it or not raw cacao powder and cinnamon both have higher antioxidant levels than blueberries! Your soul will thank you for drinking this baby!
