The Only Superfood Smoothie Recipe You’ll Ever Need

The Only Superfood Smoothie Recipe You’ll Ever Need

I’m not a coffee-drinker.

I know…your jaw just dropped, your eyes opened wide, and your heart skipped a beat. You’re probably wondering, “How can you possibly survive without coffee? How do you have enough energy to make it through your day?” The answer is simple: I start my day with a superfood smoothie.

Well, I actually start my day with exercise. As soon as I roll out of bed I put on my athletic clothes and get my body moving. But then I make my superfood smoothie. While I’m riding my bike, power walking, or lifting weights, I look forward to my delicious and refreshing superfood smoothie. I know my full glass will pack a punch of well-rounded nutrients to fuel my body for the entire rest of the day.

This is my go-to recipe for a morning burst of energy. It’s packed with antioxidants (fruits), vitamins (veggies), probiotics (dairy) and protein (seeds).What more could you want in a smoothie?

The Only Superfood Smoothie Recipe You’ll Ever Need

Looking for a morning smoothie that will fuel your body for the entire day? This superfood smoothie will fill you up with the powerful nutrients your body needs to function well.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup frozen mixed fruit, strawberries, peaches, mango, etc.
  • ⅔ cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • ¼ cup vanilla yogurt, regular or Greek
  • ¼ cup kefir, any flavor (blueberry is my favorite!)
  • 1 carrot, peeled
  • 1 small beet, peeled
  • 1 Handful of kale, destemmed
  • 1 Handful of spinach, roughly 1 cup
  • 1 tablespoon whole flax seeds
  • 2 tablespoons hemp hearts
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

Instructions

  1. Peel the carrot and beet. Place in the bottom of the blender cup.
  2. Add milk, yogurt and kefir.
  3. Next add the flax seeds, hemp hearts and chia seeds.
  4. Add the spinach and kale.
  5. Dump in the frozen fruit.
  6. Blend on low and gradually increase the power until on high.
  7. Blend for 30 seconds or until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed.

Notes

You do not necessarily have to add the ingredients to the blender cup in that order! I just find that they items blend together better if I follow that pattern (root vegetables, liquids, seeds, greens, fruit).

I may try coffee someday, but for now I’m sticking with my beloved superfood smoothie!
