Purple Tomitillo smoothie recipe

Purple Tomatillo

Ingredients

  • 1 banana - peeled
  • 1 orange - peeled
  • 2 tomatillos - husked
  • 1 tsp maqui berry powder
  • 1 tbsp cashews
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Rich in potassium, fiber and manganese, tomatillos make a great base for smoothies because of their delicate, almost lemon-like taste. Maqui berries, which are native to Chile, have an unusually high amount of anthocyanins per serving, which are antioxidants with proven cancer-fighting abilities. And while this drink is sweet enough to curb a craving, it’s relatively low in sugar, with tons of additional healthy fiber thanks to cashews and bananas. Keep yourself refreshed and energized, and your complexion glowing, with this healthy snack.
