Many smoothies are no healthier than milkshakes—laden with sugar, fat and calories. This smoothie recipe stars antioxidant-rich pomegranate juice, which a study published in the journal Foods links to the prevention of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some types of cancer, while separate research in the journal Experimental and Therapeutic Medicine shows a connection between pomegranate juice and wrinkle reduction. This healthy smoothie adds blueberries and strawberries for an extra boost of antioxidants. Green Magma barley grass juice powder is also full of antioxidants and plus chlorophyll and protein to help your digestive tract run smoothly and keep you satiated. Drink this sweet and slightly tart smoothie for a healthy breakfast, or whenever you need a jolt of energy throughout the day.
1 cup organic, unsweetened pomegranate juice
½ cup frozen organic blueberries
