Benefits

Antioxidants abound in this delectable detox smoothie!  The ingredients marry up perfectly to provide a powerful energy boost whilst gently neutralising free radicals which can cause oxidative stress to our bodies.  The impressive nutrient profile of this smoothie recipe boasts antioxidant vitamins A, C and E in significantly high amounts which are further supported by copper and manganese – potent antioxidant minerals.

The inclusion of avocado lends a delectable creamy texture, is packed with essential fatty acids and rich in dietary fibre.  Essential fats are necessary to metabolise fat soluble vitamins such as A and E and act as a carrier for antioxidants.  Apricots and kale are enriched with numerous health promoting phytochemicals – kale also provides an extremely healthy dose of vitamin K, this is important to bone health and promotes a strong skeletal structure. 

Finally bananas are famously high in potassium which maintains normal blood pressure whilst supporting the nervous system – all in all this smoothie really does have it all – it leaves you feeling satisfied and has a creamy rich taste whilst packing a powerful antioxidant punch!
