Today I am sharing a delicious antioxidant berry smoothie recipe that is so yummy and easy to make! If you are looking for another delicious smoothie recipe, you won't want to miss my Cranberry Smoothie Bowl recipe HERE. Antioxidants are so good for our body because antioxidants inhibit oxidation of cells. When your cells oxidate, you end up with free radicals. Free radicals are bad for our bodies because if there are too many of them in your body, your body can go into oxidative stress. And when that happens, your body becomes susceptible to so many diseases and illnesses. In short, eat your fruits, my friends! But I still find it hard to get enough fruits in every day for me and my family. So sometimes I have to get creative. We all love smoothies so I decided to create a smoothie recipe with a few ingredients that are known to have high amounts of antioxidants in them so that you can give yourself and your family a powerful dose of healthy fruit, protein, and antioxidants! So keep reading for my delicious antioxidant berry smoothie recipe, I am just sure you will love it!

Smoothies are so easy to make and a great way to get extra fruits and veggies into you and your family's systems. We drink smoothies all year long and my kids beg for me to make them for them all the time.
So we are sort of addicted to them around our house. And I am always trying new recipes and experimenting, and this antioxidant berry smoothie was such a hit with the whole family. I am sure your family will love it too!
Always remember that you can tweak ingredients a bit if you need to, but it may change the overall taste and texture if you do.
Using fresh fruits in your smoothies always gives you the most flavor, but that is not always practical. So I use a lot of frozen fruits for my smoothies.
The advantage to using frozen fruits is that you usually do not need to add any ice to your smoothies to thicken and chill them. If you do use fresh fruits, add a few pieces of ice to make your smoothie cold and thick.
What blender is best for smoothies and milkshakes?
There are many blenders you can use for making smoothies, milkshakes and frozen drinks, but I personally own the Vitamix 780 and think it is simply the best. I get smooth, consistent results every single time which is exactly what I want for all my drinks! You can buy your own Vitamix 780 HERE. It is my favorite and I know you will love it too!
