This popular American dessert is the perfect starting point to spin-off a healthy, plant-based, antioxidant-rich smoothie.

  • Strawberries are loaded with antioxidants.
  • Vitamin C for supporting healthy skin and immunity
  • Anthocyanin, the famous phenolic-based phytonutrient, also found in blueberries
  • Lycopene, the reddish pigment-based carotenoid, connected to reducing risk for prostate cancer
  • Ellagic-acid, linked to helping reduce cancer risk
