Vibrant to the eyes, taste-buds and body As all good nutritionists will tell you, eating food that is naturally bright in colour is the best way to ensure you get the optimum nutrient hit for feeling fresh and healthy. This Hot Rod red smoothie does just that, with sweet peppers which contain lycopene – a powerful antioxidant that is great for skin and eye health. Adding to the rainbow, we have fresh orange, lemon and pear, all containing vitamin C and fibre which aid your immune and digestive system. Finally, our superfood of the day, acai berry powder will boost energy levels – so say goodbye to that midday slump!
