Superfood drinks contain ingredients that provide an exceptional amount of nutrition per serving and make for a nutritional foundation on which a life full of health and wellness can flourish.
The right combinations include the perfect amount of carbohydrates, fats and proteins; large amounts of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and enzymes; loads of age-defying antioxidants; and cleansing fibre.
Like the green drink diet, superfood drinks offer dieters the chance to add something to a diet rather than take anything away. So, whip out your blender and give your body a boost with juices, smoothies and drinks enriched with superfoods. Here are five fabulous smoothies. Your ticket to wellness.
