The benefits to including these foods is many, not the least of which is flavour, variety and vitality to your diet.
Well then, what could be better than starting your day, or snacking mid-afternoon on a smoothie that incorporates all 6 colours! Then the whole rest of the day is bonus points.
This smoothie is also great for your gut, as it contains a wonderful array of different plants and fibre to feed those good bacteria, and it supports healthy detoxification and elimination, as it’s full of nutrients to support liver and kidney function.
