In the Reboot Kitchen: Berries & Beet Smoothie
Get excited because this smoothie will certainly give you a blast of antioxidants and phytonutrients. I was on the road returning home from a trip up north and I always like to have a break at a particular petrol stop that has a healthy food and beverage café where everything is always fresh. I enjoyed a delicious red smoothie and wanted to make it at home, so here is my version! This is very high in anthocyanidins and other important polyphenols which have vital functions for the supportive role of connective tissue regeneration — this is important for skin health and anti-aging. ENJOY!
