Eye health smoothie

A delicious eye health smoothie recipe.

Our eyes are our life.

As humans, we are very visual, so it is important that we keep our eyes in healthy condition.

This smoothie is packed with antioxidants that are essential to a good vision.

Let’s take a look at the ingredients.

Blueberries:

They are packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, which promote overall eye health.

Grapes:

Studies have shown that grapes provide great antioxidant protection and may help prevent age-related blindness.

Kale:

This leafy green vegetable is rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, which are two essential compounds to eye health. These compounds help reduce the risk of age-related eye diseases such as macular degeneration and cataracts.

Spinach:

Like kale, spinach is also a leafy green vegetable that is rich in lutein and zeaxanthin.

Process the following ingredients in a blender:

2 cups of kale, chopped

1 handful of green grapes

1 cup of filtered water
