DIY Superfood Smoothie

Smoothies are a summer staple.

Give your body a nutritional boost by adding one (or more) of the following to your smoothie:

  • Flax meal – it’s already ground so just add a tablespoon.
  • Hemp protein – excellent for frozen coffee smoothies (check out this delicious vegan recipe).  Buy at your local health food store – usually in the supplement section.
  • Coconut oil 
  • Chia seeds – it really expands so just use a little!  Purchase at your local health food store or online.
  • Cacao nibs – these give you smoothie a wonderful texture and flavor – but be sure to blend well
  • Raw cashew nuts – great for creamy smoothies, use instead of milk and be sure to soak overnight.  I put mine in a glass container in the fridge to soften up.  Easy!

TIPS: 

  • Buy an awesome blender if you don’t already have one.  It’ll perfect the consistency and make the ingredients easier for your body to digest.  Less digestion time = more energy throughout the day.
  • Everyone swears by Vitamix for a reason.. they’re the best brand, in my opinion and they last a really long time.  Can’t afford one?  Try a refurbished model for a fraction of the cost.

Be well,

Nicole
