High Energy Gogi Pomegranate Smoothie Recipe

The smoothie I chose to make today was the “pomegranate orange” smoothie.  It tasted amazing, gave me a quick burst of energy and is off the charts in ORAC value (the antioxidant level of foods) thanks to the pomegranate juice and goji berries.  To add a healthy dose of omega fatty acids I added two tablespoons of hemp seeds.
