Strawberry Peach Pick Me Up Smoothie Recipe by Green Blender

Strawberry Peach Pick-Me-Up

Ingredients

  • 4 oz strawberries
  • 1 nectarine - pitted
  • 4 oz pineapple - chopped
  • 3 sprigs mint
  • 1 tsp maqui berry powder
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

As long as there are still fresh strawberries to be had, summer is still here. In addition to getting almost a full day’s worth of vitamin C — a water-soluble vitamin that has to be added to our bodies daily — from the strawberries, nectarine and pineapple, you’ll also get a bunch zinc and antioxidants from pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are quite the antioxidant powerhouses, as are maqui berries, which have more antioxidants per serving than almost any other fruit. When you add a few cooling sprigs of mint, an herb known for aiding in digestion, into the mix, you’ve got a summary drink that will keep you healthy all the way through fall.

Try the Strawberry Banana Bread Smoothie and the Summer Strawberry Sunset Smoothie to satisfy all of your strawberry cravings!
