Berry Blast — delicious powerhouse of antioxidants

Smoothies are a great way to sneak some restorative fruits and vegetables into your diet. Not to mention, a deliciously healthy way to get your fill of energy from breakfast to bedtime. 

Personally, I like to skip dinner for a tall glass of creamy, thick, smooth smoothie. It’s quite filling, you know.
Berry blast is a powerhouse of antioxidants. Oh yes. Blueberries, raspberries and strawberries—a powerful and delish combination—team with skimmed yoghurt in this quick, super healthy drink. Easy, no-cook food in drinkable form. To fight aging.

Um, did you know that these berries fall under the top 20 antioxidant-rich foods? Surprise, surprise!
To enjoy fabulous tasting smoothies, use ripe fruits that are not squashed. Smoothies are enjoyed best chilled. Adding ice will dilute the drink, instead use chilled glasses and refrigerate fruits and diary products until ready for use. Serve immediately as certain vitamins like A and C are destroyed when exposed to air.

Smoothies offer incredible versatility. They can be made as simple or exotic as you wish. So don’t be afraid to experiment with flavors. Be as adventurous as you like!

Now, what are you waiting for? 

Come on, get ready to take that step towards a younger looking you, and—enjoy the journey too! 

Aging tastefully, I say!!

Berry Blast — delicious powerhouse of antioxidants


For smoothie
¾ cup blueberries
½ cup raspberries
½ cup strawberries, hulled
170 gm skimmed yoghurt
Sugar, to taste (optional)

For decoration
Whole fresh strawberries, raspberries and blueberries on cocktail sticks


Place the berries, sugar—if using, and yoghurt in a blender and pulse until smooth. Strain and discard seeds, if you like. 

Pour into tall chilled glasses. Decorate with whole fresh blueberries, raspberries and strawberries on a cocktail stick and serve immediately.

This is a thick smoothie. Dilute with more yoghurt, or substitute skimmed milk for yoghurt, if you like.

Mmm, yum! Healthy and yummy — what's not to like!??

    Used to buy chia seeds to sprinkle on salad at the nearby well being food store, then learned that they came from
    China. I would prefer to discover a a lot more nearby source in
    Santa Barbara. Does anyone know?
