Tart Berry Blast

- 5 large leaves kale
- 2 cups frozen mixed berries

The Tart Berry Blast Green Smoothie has so many health benefits as well. Drinking a good dose of cranberry juice at the first signs of an infection can reduce symptoms. Sometimes, it can even prevent the spread of the infection. Cranberry juice can bring the body back into balance in a short period of time. This is due, in part, to the tannin, or proanthocyanidin, that is found within cranberries. Tannin has the ability to reduce the colonization of E. coli.
Add this to the benefits of getting all those leafy greens in. One of the most nutritious ingredients of the Tart Berry Blast Green Smoothie is kale. Kale is one of my all time favorite “superfoods,” and is one of the most nutrient dense foods in the world. Kale contains a plethora of antioxidants that help your body remove any unwanted toxins. This great superfood also contains vitamins C and K, calcium, fiber, and many other healthy nutrients.
After drinking this tasty smoothie, your kids (and you) will all be happy, healthy, and satisfied. For an even healthier boost, put in TriOmega to round it all out!
