Happy New Year everyone! Here is our final smoothie recipe round up…and they’re healthy too so it’s just in time for all of those healthy new year’s resolutions 😉 I’ve included a few bonus beverage recipes to get you off on the right foot this year too…Enjoy!
Javier’s Morning Sunshine
1 frozen banana
1 handful goji berries, soaked
1 handful incan berries, soaked
1 T lucuma
1/2 c almond milk*
1/2 tsp bee pollen
water to blend (approximately 1 c)
Blend well and enjoy! Can also add cacao powder for a creamy chocolate treat 🙂
* To make almond milk, blend 1/4 c raw almonds (soaked for 12 hours and drained) with 1 cup of water (blend well until creamy) and strain through a nut mylk bag.
Michelle’s Deep Purple Delight
2 c frozen mixed berries
4 T lucuma
2 tsp maca
1-1/2 c water (or more if needed to blend)
1 tsp vanilla powder
few pinches cinnamon
optional: handful of spinach or 2 T chia seeds
Blend well in a high speed blender and eat with a spoon. I like to add spinach if I’m craving more greens or chia seeds if I’m needing an extra boost to get through the day. Feel free to add sweetener of choice if desired as well…Enjoy!
Raw Matcha Latte
One of my favorite after dinner treats used to be the matcha latte I would get from a favorite sushi restaurant of mine in NYC. The creamy mellow sweetness had me hooked everytime :)…Of course it was made with thick frothy milk and sweetened with sugar. So excited to have come up with this thick frothy treat to satisfy my matcha latte craving without the milk or the sugar! You can even add some raw protein powder for the perfect post workout treat.
1 c green hemp milk*
1 T lucuma powder
1 tsp matcha powder
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
raw honey or sweetener of choice to taste
Blend all ingredients except matcha powder well in high speed blender until smooth. Add matcha powder and blend again. Yum!
*To make green hemp milk, blend 1/4-1/3 c green hemp seed meal (depending on desired thickness) with 1 c water and strain through a nut mylk bag.
Vanilla Goji Lemonade
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! This is an awesome drink to keep you hydrated throughout the day (and perfect for those who need a little extra flavor in their water to make it palatable)!
24 oz purified water
3 handfuls goji berries (approximately 3/4c)
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
optional: 2 T chia seeds
optional: vanilla stevia
Put 3 handfuls of goji berries in a 32 oz jar and add lemon, vanilla, chia if desired, and a few drops of vanilla stevia if you desire a sweeter drink. Fill jar with water, place lid on the jar and shake, making sure that all gojis are covered with water. Let jar sit in the fridge for 3 hours or longer so gojis get fully rehydrated and plump. Drink as is allowing for a delightful little goji surprise with each sip or drink the water first and use a spoon to finish the gojis at the end. Adding chia will simply give your lemonade an additional boost of hydration and fiber. No need to worry about the chia changing the lovely sweet lemon taste as chia is flavorless 🙂
