Honey Pomegranate Twist

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz collard greens
  • 4 oz honeydew
  • 2 kiwis - peeled
  • 2 tsp pomegranate powder
  • 3 tbsp cashews
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Researchers have found that regular consumption of kiwi provides a “significant” protective effect against respiratory diseases, and the high vitamin C content makes it a significant immune booster as well. Punicalagin, a compound found only in pomegranates, has been shown to benefit the heart and blood vessels, and pomegranates have some of the highest antioxidant levels of any food. The combination of a high water content and potassium makes honeydew melon a great way to maintain healthy blood pressure levels. Blend with heart-healthy cashews to make an antioxidant-rich drink that will keep you glowing (and going) all day long.
