Maqui berry is a wild, purple superfruit that grows in the rainforests of Chile and Argentina. They are very abundant in these areas as they grow everywhere! As per various studies, it contains more antioxidant power than blackberries, strawberries, kiwis and other fruits. they contain anthocyanins, which helps protect your body from free radicals from the environment and your lifestyles, such as pollution and cigarette smoke. There are also many other health claims associated with this berry, such as cleansing, antiaging, immune support and anti-inflammatory benefits. It can also help support your metabolism and give you energy. It is very low in calories, so it will not effect your weight loss goals.

Today was about 90 degrees in New Jersey, so I decided to make “nice cream” after work to cool myself down. It was my first time making it and it was delicious, exactly what I needed after a long day of work.
