FROZEN BERRIES can be much cheaper and more sustainable with less packaging than fresh berries. Frozen berries retain all their nutrients picked at optimum freshness and quickly frozen.

 

PITAYA | DRAGON FRUIT – you can use a fresh fruit or you can buy frozen smoothie packets.

 

THE SUPER SEED MIX is a great addition; it helps balance hormones and our bodies’ natural elimination + detoxification process.  Blended smoothies are a great way to help aid our digestion & nutrient absorption process and balance our blood sugar.
