Why are antioxidants important?
These goodies fight against free-radicals, which damage cells and contribute to aging, cancer and other health conditions. This smoothie is an easy way to get some extra antioxidants and vitamins into your diet. It’s packed with kale and almonds, both high in vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant).
The berries, carrots, chia seeds, honey, matcha and Greek yogurt provide additional potent antioxidants, amino acids, probiotics, vitamins and minerals to help fight disease and promote a healthy gut.
Why include matcha (green tea powder)?
This antioxidant-rich powder is believed to have cancer-fighting effects on the body, as well as helping to regulate blood sugar levels and boost metabolism.

Why include chia seeds?
Not only are chia seeds rich in protein, antioxidants, fiber and omega 3’s, their powerful benefits range from heart health and helping your immune system to fighting off bacteria and viruses to aiding in weight loss.
