Publix had a sale this week on frozen fruit, Acai juice, and Medjool dates, so I decided to prepare some ready-to-make smoothies! Each prepared bag makes two smoothies, so half this recipe if you just want to make one at a time.
These smoothies are delicious and are high in antioxidants, but I will warn you they are also high in natural sugar, so I wouldn't drink these as a weight-loss attempt unless you do a meal replacement with them. And they are really filling so that could work! But I'm not a doctor, so I'm only telling you to make them because they GOOD!
If you're interested, you can learn more about the benefits of Acai and an antioxidant-rich diet by clicking here.
And before I go on with the recipe, I feel the need to add that I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've added a recipe that is 100% healthy. HA! I'll try to diversify my recipes page in the future. ;)
1-cup each of frozen strawberries, blueberries, dark cherries
4-pitted Medjool dates
1-banana (I usually peel our bananas when they get spotty like the one below and then freeze them for banana bread or smoothies- that way they don't go to waste!)
3/4 cup Acai juice
1/4 cup orange juice
You can buy these pitted, but these came with the pit. I know Trader Joe's has the pitted ones if you're interested. They are a great source of fiber and make the smoothies taste so sweet!
It's a fitting color for this FSU glass! ;)
Three more bags for later in the week. . .
And ready to freeze for later!
Hope you like!!
