Tess kindly gave her permission for me to post one of her amazing recipes for the book, and I chose the antioxidant avenger as I’m in need of a nutrient boost at the moment.  I hope you enjoy this delicious recipe as much as I did!

Antioxidant Avenger

“I think of this powerful blend as “field to shield.” With the antioxidant weight of
these ingredients, nothin’s gettin’ the better of you! You can enjoy this booster in
summer with a little sweetener and omit the trio of orange zest, cinnamon, and
ginger. But, these warming spices taste absolutely incredible with the berries, really
pull the other flavors together, and elevate this smoothie from good to great. The
açaí and maqui are optional but provide an invaluable boost, and I always include
them. If you don’t add these superfoods or the spices, you may not need the dates.
However you make it, this one’s got your back.”
