The basics - What you need to source to incorporate the ultimate nourishment:
Healthy fats high in omega-3
Fresh or self-frozen fruit or vegetables
Coconut oil or milk
Ground Flaxseeds or flaxseed oil
Almond, macadamia, peanut or cashew butter
Pre-soaked chia seeds
Well-Sourced protein powder can work wonders!
Activated nuts and seeds
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.
Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or mulberries
Basically most fruits will work, mix it up & go with what you have!
Get an extra boost of nutrients!
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.
