Maroon Antioxidant Smoothie: Blueberry, Raspberry, Lime, Mint

img_5783
Snow is on the ground in New York City, but i’m still drinking smoothies!

Valentine’s day is approaching, and inspiring me to favor anything that’s pink or red or leaning towards one of these two colors.

I added some beautiful frozen red raspberries to my morning smoothie, combining them with frozen blueberries, tangy lime juice, and refreshing green mint leaves. The result was a beautiful maroon concoction full of antioxidants.

This drink is delicious and energizing; in other words, it’s the perfect smoothie to blend up before stepping out the door for a busy day.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and happy cooking!
