Dr Jockers Comments:
Berries are super rich in phytonutrients and anti-oxidants. The primary anti-oxidant in blueberries is anthocyanins. The anthocyanins give blueberries their blue/purple color and protect them from UV radiation. You also find anthocyanins in red cabbage, red onions, etc.
Raspberries and strawberries also contain anthocyanins as well as ellagic acids which has powerful anti-carcinogenic benefits. Spinach is rich in chlorophyll and carotenoid anti-oxidants that purify the blood and detoxify the body. Consuming a multitude of different types of colors is a great way to improve your health.
Coconut milk provides healthy fats and makes this shake thicker and creamy. The coconut milk also reduces the glycemic response of the sugar in the berries. The coconut water provides extra electrolytes to help support your hydration levels.
This tastes amazing and is a perfect snack for the kids after school or after playing in the summer sunshine and heat! It is super refreshing and helps your body adapt to the heat and sun exposure more effectively. Your family will love it!
