We are on week 2 of our Make-Ahead Freezer Smoothie Pack series!

Last week we talked about chronic inflammation in the body, and how food can play a big role in keeping it at bay. Today we’re going to talk about why it’s important to consume foods that are high in anti-oxidants and what foods are the best to do this.
Benefits of Antioxidants
Anti-oxidants help protect your body and cells from free radicals, which are unstable molecules that naturally occur in your body that damage cells and cause disease and aging. Consuming a diet rich in anti-oxidants help counteract the effect of free radicals and protect your body.
Best Antioxidant Foods
Anti-oxidants are found in many common foods like berries, vegetables and sweets as well! Some common sources are: berries, nuts, dark chocolate, spinach, and artichokes! For our smoothie we’ve included berries, spinach, ground flax seeds and cacao powder!

To Make Freezer Packs:
- Place all ingredients, except almond milk, into a freezer safe bag. Freeze until ready to use, up to 1 month.
- Combine all ingredients, including almond milk, in a high speed blender.
- Blend until creamy, adding additional almond milk if necessary.
- You can substitute fresh fruit, but we find it easier to buy prepped frozen fruit for these smoothies
