Strawberry – Bell Smoothie
Here’s a great smoothie that boost your metabolism while at the same time supporting your immune system due to the rich sources of Vitamin C found in the micronutrients of red bell pepper. The smoothie still has a great taste to it due to the agave, apple juice and lemon. As you review the ingredients you may also begin wondering about the pinch of cayenne. Cayenne contains capsaicin which, in addition to a number of benefits, can also relieve pain.
