How to Make an Antioxidant Rich Smoothie

Most of the time, when I hear about an antioxidant-rich smoothie, it’s loaded with berries because berries are high in Anthocyanins (an antioxidant). I love berries and we eat a lot of them in the summer, but they aren’t available as often during the winter months here in Vermont.

Antioxidant smoothie for skin

I decided to make this smoothie with Halo mandarin oranges because I can always use a boost of Vitamin C and mandarine oranges are high in both Vitamin C and Flavonoids (another antioxidant). These are both good for your skin.

To give it even more antioxidant power, I also added some chopped Granny Smith apple since Granny Smith apples are also high in Flavanoids.

If you happen to have berries on hand, you can certainly toss in some of those as well. Then, you’d have an antioxidant berry smoothie.

What else could I put in this smoothie?

This recipe is inspired by a pin I found on Pinterest. Once a month, a group of bloggers gets together to recreate a pin on Pinterest to make it our own. The original pin used peaches that are not available in my store in February. It also used a shake mix which I didn’t have on hand.

Instead, I substituted Greek yogurt and omitted the almond milk and the shake mix. Then I used a Halo mandarin and some chopped apple in place of the peach and left out the honey because it’s sweet enough already from the fruit. Then I substituted frozen banana for ice and added some fresh parsley for even more antioxidants.

Antioxidant rich smoothie tips

Make sure that you’re using a good blender or smoothie maker to make this. You’ll want something with power behind it to blend the frozen banana and the mandarin orange.

Antioxidant green smoothie

Green smoothies are all the rage right now because they are so good for you. So, if you want an antioxidant rich smoothie that’s green, why not add kale or fresh baby spinach. These are both very high in antioxidants and are a great way to switch up your smoothie.

  1. I never thought about parsley as ingredient in a smoothie. I've been trying different smoothie recipes in the morning to drink in the car, this will be perfect and I have all the ingredients. Just to clarify, did you peel the halo? 
  2. This looks incredibly refreshing and healthy. I am going to be making a smoothie soon with berries, and cherries. I will keep this combination in mind for next time. 
  3. Looks delicious! I just made a smoothie recipe using an orange and a banana yesterday, and it was a great combination. I like the addition of the parsley, what a great way to add in some extra nutrition.
