And for the third installment today on my Juice focus, I’ve chosen one that I leave for those cheat days when I’m ok loading up on fruits because there aren’t any greens to help balance the sugar spike. That said, this is a great recipe packed with powerful antioxidants, and so long as you indulge now and then on a treat like this, your body can handle the insulin spike with ease, and by adding a nut butter to add some protein and fiber, you can help balance the effects of the fruits.
- Handful of blueberries
- Handful of strawberries
- Handful of mangos
- 1 TBSP nut butter of choice
- 1 TBSP coconut oil
- 1 cup Water plus extra for desired consistency
- Blend all ingredients in blender, adding more water as needed for desired consistency.
Note: to increase thickness to a smoothie consistency, add 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt or about 1 cup of ice and Dairy-free Milk of choice. Other great options are to add 1 banana or 1 whole avocado.
Antioxidants in berries boast potent anti-aging benefits.
Ingredients: Blueberries, strawberries, mango
