Feeling Low? Super Boost Your Mood With The Antioxidant Avenger

Feeling Low? Super Boost Your Mood With The Antioxidant Avenger

I think of this powerful blend as “field to shield.”
With the antioxidant weight of these ingredients, nothin’s gettin’ the better of you! You can enjoy this booster in summer with a little sweetener and omit the trio of orange zest, cinnamon, and ginger. But, these warming spices taste absolutely incredible with the berries, really pull the other flavors together, and elevate this smoothie from good to great. The açaí and maqui are optional but provide an invaluable boost, and I always include them. If you don’t add these superfoods or the spices, you may not need the dates. However you make it, this one’s got your back.

Serves 2

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup (120ml) coconut water
1/2 teaspoon probiotic powder (optional; see note, page 30)
1 packet (3.5 ounces/100g) frozen açaí pulp, or 2 tablespoons dried açaí powder
2 teaspoons maqui powder
2 cups (320g) mixed fresh or frozen berries (1/2 cup each of blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries)
1/2 cup (85g) red seedless grapes
1 ripe pear, skin on, cored and diced
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger (optional)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
1/2 teaspoon finely grated
orange zest (optional)
1 cup (125g) ice cubes
1 chopped pitted date, soaked,

METHOD
1 Throw everything into your blender and puree on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until smooth and creamy. Tweak the sweetness to taste.
