Aronia Açai Blueberry Anti-Aging Smoothie Recipe

This is an ultimate anti-aging smoothie! Each and every ingredient is loaded with antioxidants and other phyto-nutrients that are well researched for their DNA protecting and disease preventing qualities. Purple antioxidants, known as anthocyanins, have been shown to protect the heart and vision, promote mental acuity, and prevent oxidative stress.

Make this smoothie as often as you can or at least once a week to nourish and rejuvenate your body.

  • 2 Tbsp raw açai powder
  • 2 Tbsp raw aronia (chokeberry) powder
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 Tbsp Pure Synergy superfood powder
  • 2 Tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 cups coconut water
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 Tbsp argan oil
  • 1/2 tsp pink Himalaya salt 
  • 2-3 ice cubes if you are using fresh berries

  • Wash avocados and cut them into halves. Immerse in a bowl of ice-cold water to prevent them from turning brown. Remove the seeds and spoon out the flesh. 
  • Pour coconut water into a blender. Add avocado and blend for a few seconds. 
  • Add all the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. 
  • Pour your purple smoothie into tall glasses and enjoy in good company!
