The phytochemicals found in cranberries and pomegranates keep your heart healthy, in part by triggering the production of blood pressure-lowering nitric oxide, which inhibits arterial plaque buildup. Meanwhile, nuts are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce the risk for cardiac arrest.

This smoothie bowl is an antioxidant beast! Mixed berries are a natural sweetener, and serve as a source of many important phytonutrients. Specifically, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries are full of flavonoids, which help protect blood vessels and have anti-inflammatory benefits.
Serves 2 creamy smoothie bowls
2 cups frozen mixed berries (9 ounces), plus fresh berries as a topping. I love using raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries.
1 cup almond milk, chilled
4 teaspoons chia seeds, plus extra for a topping
2 Tablespoons honey
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Blend frozen berries, milk, chia seeds, honey, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt in a blender until smooth. Pour the smoothie mixture into two bowls and top with whichever garnishes your heart desires.
This smoothie bowl is inspired by the age-old combination of chocolate hazelnut. There's something decadent about the flavor of roasted hazelnuts that only gets better with rich chocolate and real cocoa.
Hazelnuts are also very special in terms of nutrition and health. They have a unique fat composition (primarily oleic acid), an ounce provides 2.7 grams of dietary fiber, and they're particularly high in two minerals: manganese and copper. Copper is needed for iron absorption and manganese is necessary for bone formation.
Serves 2 rich and creamy smoothie bowls
2 servings of chocolate protein powder, any brand will do
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1½ cup unsweetened almond milk or water
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Blend until smooth, pour the smoothie mixture into two bowls and top with whichever garnishes your heart desires.
