Berry Smoothie


I am sorry I have not been posting much lately this week has been an extremely busy one for our family.
We have also been having a lot of storms in our area.

Since Berry season is on its way in I thought I would share this seasonal smoothie recipe with you.
I love smoothies they make a great snack or even a meal.
They are very healthy and nutritious.

Berry Smoothie Recipe:
 2/3 Cup Pineapple Juice
1 cup raspberries
12 strawberries
1/4 cup cranberries (op)
4 ice cubes
You can make it as above stated
or add:
Kefir or yogurt to taste
if you like a sweeter smoothie add:
A squirt of agave nectar of a spoon of honey.
Blend all in blender or I like the bullet for smoothies.
Enjoy

Just for the nutrition part:
Raspberries are good for Enhancing immunity, rich in potassium and niacin, contains iron and some vitamin c.
Strawberries are good for Antioxidants, antiviral, anticancer, effective against kidney stones, gout, arthritis, vitamin A, Vitamin C, and potassium.
Cranberries are good for treating urinary and bladder infections,  Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iodine and calcium.  Cranberries can also prevent Kidney stones and deodorize urine.

Note:  Not meant to treat or prevent.  This is just some info I have researched and looked into this is what I  came up with.
