The Pomegranate & Raspberry Smoothie That’s Packed With Antioxidants

Your skin will love you for the antioxidants in this pomegranate and raspberry smoothie. And your tummy will be satisfied with this breakfast-worthy treat.

This raspberry smoothie is good for you and your skin. Trust.

Raspberries are an underrated superfood. We always talk about the blueberry and its antioxidant levels, but raspberries are good for you to. You can enjoy them on salads, on their own or blend the perfect raspberry smoothie.

Raspberries are loaded with the powerhouse nutrient antioxidants. These little phytonutrients are great for skin because of their cell-protecting properties (which is why you will also read about how they are great for cancer and disease prevention, too). This fruit, according to Medical News Today, is also good food of choice to help manage diabetes and digestion.

And raspberries – or pretty much any berry for that matter – berries pack more antioxidant punch than any other fruit or vegetable tested.They work beautifully to help protect skin from the damage that leads to wrinkles. (Here are more foods that will help to fight wrinkles, too!)

So make sure your diet includes raspberries, like with this raspberry smoothie. Bored of smoothies? Make this raspberry smoothie into a smoothie bowl. Instead of pouring the blended fruit into a glass, use a bowl. And then top with your favourite fruit and grains, like banana, kiwi, nuts, chia seeds, mandarin oranges and – why not!? – some frozen raspberries.

Also try this cran-raspberry smoothie, or if you have some time, this raspberry and orange blossom sorbet. Or if you just want something quick for a sweet craving, this berry fruit salad is perfect.
