Berries, especially blueberries, are prized by nutritionists and athletes alike for their antioxidant properties that help to maintain brain function, fight inflammation, and prevent heart disease. These little wonder-fruits are also a great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese, all of which help to keep your immune system in top condition.
Many nutritionists recommend oats as the ideal breakfast, and for good reason. As well as being cheap and quick to prepare, they are packed with fiber, protein, and slow-release complex carbohydrates that provide energy for hours. Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties – plus it will make the smoothie an amazing, vibrant color!
Our brand-new Mixed Berry flavor of Daily Boost goes perfectly with this smoothie. With 9mg per serving of Performance CBD from full-spectrum, vapor extracted hemp oil, Daily Boost helps to works with the body to promote harmony, focus, balance, and well-being, making it a great way to start the day.
The best bit about this smoothie is that it is customizable: make it sweeter or more tart, according to your preference. Sub in your favorite berries, or whatever is in season. If you like a thicker smoothie, or you’re looking to add a bit more protein, we’ve included some plant-based options to add more body to the smoothie too.
