Looking to mix up your classic acai bowl? Using a base of Amazonia Acai Pure, frozen banana and frozen blueberries, Healthy Luxe has spiced her bowl with Turmeric and Cinnamon for extra flavour and health benefits! The best part? It tastes like dessert!
Turmeric contains a powerful substance called curcumin, which boasts anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Another delicious spice, Cinnamon is rich in antioxidants that have also been found to have anti-inflammatory effects. And finally, she's included cacao, which is loaded with antioxidants, iron, magnesium and calcium.
Why are antioxidants important in a healthy diet? Found in a range of different foods, these compounds help defend your cells from damage caused by potentially harmful molecules known as free radicals. When free radicals accumulate, it causes oxidative stress in the body – which may damage your DNA and other important structures in your cells.
With 7 x the antioxidants of blueberries plus Omega-3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids, Amazonia Acai Pure is the ideal base for smoothie bowls. It’s a delicious and nutritious free radical fighter. Healthy Luxe has topped her bowls with a handful of her favourite granola and a big dollop of crunchy peanut butter – but you can be as creative as you like!
