Mint Acai Berry Smoothie

This antioxidant-rich smoothie is packed with seasonal, winter berries, treated with fresh mint for an energizing blend!

Acai, blueberries, and blackberries have some of the highest antioxidant levels of any other fruit, making them ideal in cancer prevention.

Flaxseed and hemp seed milk are impressive essential fatty acids sources. Both are rich in the omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), while hemp seed milk also touts omega-6’s linoleic acid and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).

The benefits of the essential fatty acids and antioxidants found in this smoothie may help aid in inflammation and pain relief as well.
