Recipe: Super fruit antioxidant smoothie

By: Amanda Etty

Start your day with a nutritious super fruit smoothie with acai and cardamom.


Dark-hued berries (including the exotic açai) and pomegranate juice are loaded with antioxidants, which may help prevent age-related illnesses. kefir and flaxseed oil are stars for digestion. The secret ingredient? cardamom – it adds a subtle spicy sophistication.
