Variations

In this smoothie recipe the Strawberries and Blueberries could be swapped for some Blackberries and Raspberries; or any kind of berry of your choice. - The Yogurt doesn't have to be dairy and could be soya based, flavoured or just plain Natural. - If you wanted you could try any kind of fruit juice instead of the Coconut Milk - To vary the hint of sweetness a little Cinnamon Powder, Honey or even Chilli Powder (for the adventurous) could replace the Vanilla Powder. 

The great thing about the '5 Step' Smoothie Method is that you can transition each layer in making the smoothie with your own Fruits, Liquids, Thickening Ingredients, Flavour Ingredients and Power Boosters to suit your needs and tastes.

Benefits

Packed with antioxidants this berrylicious smoothie will help you gently detox whilst being a treat for the tastebuds! Blueberries are one of the highest antioxidant value fruits, this value largely comes from poly-phenolic anthocyanin compounds  - these compounds are anti inflammatory as well as ridding the body of harmful oxygen derived free radicals.  Add in the acai powder - high in antioxidant vitamins A & E and the beetroot powder bringing vitamin C and iron, we certainly have a recipe for detox success!  Finished off with bee pollen, this is considered to be one of nature's most complete foods due to its comprehensive and balanced nutrient profile.  Whilst tasting sweet and delicious it also packs a powerful nutritional punch, with an abundance of B vitamins - essential to a healthy nervous system - and also containing the perfect partnership of vitamin C and iron, enjoy this smoothie when you have a craving for something sweet in the knowledge that you are nourishing your mind and body too!
