Lately, I have been craving ice cold smoothies. With the temps over 100 degrees, I NEED SOMETHING COLD AND DELICIOUS TO DRINK!!!!!! You can add one or all of these ingredients to your fave smoothie to give it an extra healthy kick! Great way to get good things into your diet! Your skin, hair and energy levels will thank you!
Pardon the lack of posting I have just been paddle boarding, sweating and eating great things! (like the smoothie pictured that I just drank!)
I like this smoothie because it is light but still creamy and just the right amount of sweet and spicy. Spice up your average smoothie with some of these fun super foods and ingredients.
Superfood Smoothie: 2 servings
2 Frozen Bananas- High in Fiber & Potassium
1 cup Frozen Spinach- High in Flavanoids (cancer preventative), Fiber, great for skin as it is high vitamin A, moisture retention, high in Vitamin K which equals healthy nervous system. (fun tip: you don’t taste spinach at all when juiced or added into a smoothie with other ingredients!)
3/4 cup Frozen Blueberries- Super! super! High in Antioxies, the Anthocyanin neutralizes free radicals in system.
2 tablespoons Goji Berries-The anti-aging super food!!!!! Contains Polysaccharides (stimulates Human Growth Hormone, which controls the aging control system in our body) Also has a high ORAC Value which prevents oxidation which preserve the cells in the body. Tip: OKC FRIENDS: These are generally pretty expensive but the Asian Market (with the palm trees) sells bags of these near the registers for like 3 dollars!
1.5 tablespoons Spirulina Powder- This is an Algae Superfood! High in protein, and omegas. Offers the 2nd highest concentration behinds mother’s milk of the Omega 6 Fatty Acid which = healthy skin and hair, alkalizing! , and so many other amazing things!
2 small Thai Chilis (if sensitive to spicy, start with one)- Anti-inflammatory, great for circulation and digestion.
2 tablespoons Chia Seeds- great hydrator, high in Omegas, high in essential nutrients and an energizer!
Rice Milk (creamier) as needed or Coconut Water (lighter taste and Potassium and Electrolyte replenisher)
