Acai-Cacao Hemp Smoothie

This weekend I came up with the perfect energy hemp smoothie. It’s simple, deep purple, and full of life. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
3-4 T hemp seeds
8 oz purified water
1 packet Amazing Grass Chocolate Green Superfood
1 spoonful goji powder
1 spoonful maca powder
1-2 T raw cacao nibs
1 spoonful bee pollen
2-3 tsp pumpkin spice
1 packet Sambazon Acai smoothie packet
2 pitted Medjool dates
1 spoonful raw almond butter
½ cup frozen blueberries
1 medium-size banana
¼ cup frozen pineapple chunks

Preparation:
Add hemp seeds to a high-speed blender with 1/4 of the purified water. Blend until smooth. Add the remaining water and blend on high until milky and smooth. Next, add all dry ingredients, blend on high. Then add the dates and blend again. Add remaining ingredients (fruit and acai smoothie mix), blend until creamy and smooth. Ready to serve. Makes 1-2 smoothies.

Sorry, no picture with this recipe. The drinks don’t last long enough to take a snap shot. Lol…

Peach-Cherry Smoothie

Today we wanted something different for our morning smoothie. We usually have a cacao and blueberry smoothie almost daily. So I thought to myself, “why not make something with peaches and cherries?” So I did!

This recipe still is loaded with super food goodness! It’s frosty, frothy, and so very yummo! Enjoy!!!

Ingredients:
1 scoop Revitaphi
1 scoop raw protein powder (vanilla flavor preferred)
1 tsp raw vanilla bean powder
1 T raw lucuma powder
1 T raw cacao nibs
1 T bee pollen
1 T raw oat groats (optional)
1 T raw honey
1 T raw coconut butter
4-6 drops SweetLeaf liquid stevia clear
2-3 bananas
2-3 cups sliced peaches (recommend freezing before use)
1 1/2 cups cherries (recommend freezing before use)
1/2 cup pineapple chunks
coconut water, or purified water to cover

Preparation:
Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender, and mix until completely chopped, mixed, smooth and creamy! Makes about 2-3 tall glasses.

Super Berries and Papaya Smoothie

I was so proud of my son’s guest blog post and recipe last night, that I thought I would create another smoothie recipe that would have a similar flair to it. So I created this morning’s Super Berries and Papaya Smoothie. It won the “great flavor” test from my son! Hope you enjoy it too!

Ingredients:
1 packet Amazing Grass Berry Flavor drink powder
3 T scoop raw Brazil nut protein powder
2 T raw coconut butter
3 T raw lucuma powder
2 T raw maca powder
1 T raw vanilla bean powder
1 T raw honey
2 T raw cacao nibs
3-4 drops clear SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia
2-3 bananas (peeled and frozen)
1 pint fresh black berries
1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries (stems removed)
1/4 cup of açaí (can be berry, juice, or sorbet)
1 small-medium sized Hawaiian papaya (seeded, peeled, and chopped)
3-4 cups prepared raw almond nut mylk
3-4 pitted Medjool dates (small)
filtered water if needed for consistency

Preparation:
Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender and mix until super smooth and creamy. The smoother the better, since black berries have little stone-like seeds that can get caught in your teeth (it can be annoying…lol).

Amazing Super Smoothie

For those of you who know me, I love to use a lot of super foods in my smoothies. Even though just having a delicious raw smoothie with fresh greens or fruits, or the combination of both is more than adequate, I find super foods super energizing. That’s why I used them so much. Some super foods may be difficult to find at the local health store. However, you kind find a large variety online.

Today’s smoothie uses several of my favorite super foods, plus and easy to find super green’s powder Amazing Grass. You can find Amazing Grass at the local natural or health store such as Whole Foods or Sprouts, even Fresh and Easy. Or, you can click here to purchase Amazing Grass or click the ad on my blog page.

Ingredients:
1 packet or 8 grams (1 scoop) Amazing Grass Berry Flavor Drink Powder
2 T raw protein powder
1 T raw maca powder
1 T raw camu powder
1 T raw lucuma powder
1 tsp raw suma powder
1 T raw cacao nibs
2 tsp raw vanilla bean powder
1 T (heaping) raw honey
1/2 T raw chia seeds
1/4 cup raw oatmeal
1/4  raw sliced almonds
1/4 tsp cordyceps mushrooms
1/2 T bee pollen
1 T cold pressed hemp oil
3-4 drops vanilla flavored SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia
3 bananas
1 cup blueberries (frozen)
1 cup cherries (frozen)
1 cup fresh coconut water
enough purified water to cover ingredients

Preparation:
Combine all ingredients in a high-speed food processor. Blend until super smooth and creamy. Serve cold. Makes about 2-3 tall glasses.

“Get Well” Brad Shake

My son has come down with the flu, and has been craving orange juices. I wanted to make him an energizing shake that would not only fill his craving needs, but would energize him, and kick-up his immune system. I wanted something simple too. The other day I was viewing one of Jennifer Cornbleet’s video recipes called Travel In The Raw, and got the idea for today’s recipe shake. Brad loved it so much, and it gave him energy to finish his homework, so that he could rest for the remainder of the day and get well. (Sorry no picture).

Ingredients:
3 Cara oranges (or whatever type you like)
3 bananas (medium-large)
4-6 oz fresh coconut water
2 scoops (approx 3T) green foods powder (desired brand)
1-1 1/2 tsp bee pollen
8 purified ice cubes
1 cup purified water (more or less for desired consistency)

Preparation:
Peel and juice the oranges. Add juice and some pulp to a high-speed blender. Peel and cut bananas, then add to blender. Add remaining ingredients (except water), and blend on high until smooth and creamy, adding the water a little at a time until desired consistency is reached. Pour into glasses and drink. This recipe makes about 2 tall glasses. Yummo! 🙂

Banana Fuzz Smoothie

Here’s an old recipe that I meant to post back in April. Sorry, no picture.

This drink is very creamy, and pulpy. The flavors are refreshing for a breakfast smoothie, or a mid-day snack. Enjoy!

2 bananas, peeled
2 large Medjool dates, pitted
¼ cup pineapple chunks
sliced raw almonds, (handful)
purified water, enough to cover half of the blender
1 cup ice cubes, (purified water)

Preparation:
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until smooth. You may add more or less water depending on the thickness you desire. This drink will be very pulpy, but very yummy too.
