Fruit and Vege

We love pre-freezing fresh fruit or vege to make the smoothie extra refreshing! Keep the produce seasonal to avoid extra pesticide use or carbon footprint.

  • Banana

  • Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or mulberries

  • Mango

  • Cucumber

  • Spinach

  • Kale

  • Acai berry

  • Apple

Add a scoop of your fave superfood to make your smoothie even more powerful! Try these:

Raw cacao powder, Bee pollen, Aloe-vera juice, Spirulina, Acai, or a super greens powder mix.

Add some Medicinal Herbs

Cinnamon: excellent for insulin sensitivity, diabetes & reducing blood glucose levels

Astragalus: feeling a little overwhelmed or anxious? This is the herb for you! Also great for immune system functionality.

Maca: The ultimate herb in nourishing your endocrine (hormone) system.

Rhodiola: A leading herb in nourishing & providing vitality

Green tea powder: high in antioxidant & a perfect pick-me-up alternative to coffee

Peppermint: Excellent for digestion

Ginger: A beautiful herb for circulation & cleansing.

There are so many great ones, try them all!

Freeze fresh fruit into ice cubes to add-in. Made too much from your previous smoothie mix? Make them into ice blocks! Pre-made some iced tea? Why not add it to your smoothie! Try to keep your produce & supplements organic to ensure they are well absorbed by the body.
