Happy Friday! It’s a gorgeous 80 degree, sunny day here in Pennsylvania and I’m still enjoying my green smoothies for lunch on a daily basis. Once it starts getting colder out, I will tire of them and crave something warm and comforting, but until then, it’s a green smoothie per day kind of summer!
Today’s yummy recipe is using Bai, Brasilia Blueberry Antioxidant-Infused drink. If you’ve never had any Bai Antioxidant-Infused drinks, I definitely recommend them! The Molokai Coconut is my favorite! I love using these drinks in my smoothies in place of water or coconut water. Of course, if you don’t have an Bai on hand you can still make this recipe with water or coconut water.
This recipe is really refreshing and tastes like a green tropical drink! It’s loaded with vitamins and antioxidants from the kale & swiss chard, pineapple, and Bai of course. But, it also has anti-inflammatory benefits from the Turmeric and Flax Seeds. I also love adding some fiber and natural sweetness from dates. Oh and the vitamin C and flavanoids from the lemon and lime! Try this healthy and yummy smoothie today and reap all the wonderful benefits!
