We are at day 2 of Seven Days of Smoothies! Today’s smoothie is rich in Anthocyanins! They are the blue, violet, and red flavonoid pigments found in plants. Anthocyanins are good for your eyes and cancer protective among many other benefits. I have also included Maca which is beneficial for hormone balance in both men and women. It is an ancient Peruvian Superfood!
Blue Bumbleberry Smoothie – Day 2
1 Cup Frozen Blueberries
1/2 Cup Frozen Blackberries
1 Tablespoon Maca Powder
1 Tablespoon Blueberry Juice Concentrate (I found a smaller bottle at my local grocery store, but this is the brand I used)
1 Tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice
2 Tablespoons of Grass Fed Gelatin or Your Favorite Protein Powder (add after initial blending and blend just until incorporated to prevent foaming)
Blend all the ingredients together until very smooth. Then add the gelatin or protein powder and blend briefly.
