Get a powerful punch of antioxidants with this delicious, three-ingredient antioxidant berry smoothie recipe. The drink is easy to make and provides delicious flavor along with key health benefits.

Berries, especially dark ones like blueberries and blackberries are loaded with anthocyanin, an antioxidant that gives the berries color and provides multiple health benefits. Anthocyanin may help prevent cancer, fight heart disease, and even lower your blood pressure. The antioxidants found in pomegranate juice, one of the richest food sources, have also been shown to lower blood pressure as well as lower inflammation and help fight breast and prostate cancers.

  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1/2 cup 100% pomegranate juice

Preparation
