Riding this wave of energy from all of the moon and planetary activity, short on sleep, need something yummy to wake me up enough to do some things until this subsides a little bit.
This superfood smoothie is an awesome way to get nutrients without having to cook anything or even use your jaw to chew. For the truly inspired lazy person who danced a little too close to the sun and is feeling the burn.
My magic bullet broke a week ago (single tear) so I used a blender to make this one and I had a lot of extra – not complaining!
Here’s what I put in this thing:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 unfrozen, ripe banana
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 tablespoon beet powder
- 2 tablespoons cacao powder
- 1 tablespoon maca powder
- 2 cups of mixed greens – baby kale, baby chard, baby spinach
- 1 tablespoon milk thistle seeds
- 1 tablespoon black chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- couple slices of ginger
- splash of cold brew coffee (optional)
- garnished with a late-season fig!
Woop woop, there you have it. It was really so delicious! And if you’re wondering about the beet powder, I found it in bulk at the grocery store and did not in fact grind up beets into a powder. Yes, beet powder is a thing! And beets are so good for detoxifying your organs, especially your liver, which gets bogged down with cleaning your blood so that your skin (also an organ) remains nice and everything’s working normal.
The combo of beet powder, milk thistle, and power greens makes this smoothie extra detoxifying. While the cacao and maca provide valid energy you can feel right away.
Clear out the old stuff and make space for the new day! Enjoy it :)
