This antioxidant packed superfood smoothie will have you energized and glowing in no time at all! Beets and blueberries are loaded with powerful antioxidants that reduce oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals that can lead to aging and illness. The coconut oil is not only a natural antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral, but it increases energy expenditure rather than being stored as fat, which can lead to more weight loss in the long term. Hemp seeds are full of fiber, protein, and healthy omega fats, making this beautiful, balanced smoothie a perfect post-workout recharge! So between all of that nutrition you have a superfood smoothie that also tastes AMAZING without being too sweet.
