Cherry Lime Smoothie

Cherries, peaches and lime–a healthy and refreshing treat.

This smoothie is easy to make in the winter with frozen cherries and peaches.

Cherries are high in fiber, vitamin C and flavanoids. Anthocyanins give them their dark-red color. and can help protect our bodies against damage from environmental toxins and free radicals that can speed up the aging process and cause cell death and damage. Anthocyanins are shown to have anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic properties. Cherries may also help prevent diseases, control obesity, and help in treating diabetes.

Peaches are rich in phytochemicals called phenols that act as antioxidants and which can help prevent cancer.  Peaches are also an excellent source of Vitamin C which is shown to improve skin texture, and reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease.

Limes contain specific flavonoid compounds that have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. They also contain Vitamin C, which, among its other benefits, helps boost the immune system.

My 12 year old son reports that this is his favorite smoothie ever.

Enjoy!
