Energize Me Smoothie

If your busy holiday schedule has you dragging, try our energy smoothie.  The smoothie includes Aroniaberries, a top source of antioxidants including phyto-nutrient compounds like antohocyanins, polyphenols, quercitin, and catechins.  Aroniaberries and raspberries have a low glycemic index which means your blood sugar won't be spiking and send you crashing. Maca is a reknowned energy booster.  Lucuma is a super nutritious South American fruit that contains beta carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium and protein.  With all this combined into a smoothie you can't help feeling berry energized.

2 cups apple juice
1 teaspoon raw maca powder
1 teaspoon lucuma powder
