Blueberries and plums make a lethal combination for free radicals floating around the body. They are both considered a powerful antioxidants and help prevent illness and chronic disease. On top of that, did we mention they taste great? Adding a bit of fresh, local basil really seals the deal and rounds this smoothie off as a lovely dream in a mason jar.
Fresh herbs takes a mediocre smoothie and makes it to a marvelous one. If you have some extra fresh herbs, toss them in your next smoothie! Try the Southwest Cilantro Smoothie or the Thyme Traveler’s Wife Smoothie.
