Time-saving Superfood Smoothie Hack

Ensure that you're loading your smoothies with protein, fat, fiber and greens with this simple prep!

Ingredients:

SEED & SPICE MIXTURE:

1 tbsp/serving each ground flax, chia, & hemp seeds

1 tsp/serving turmeric &/or spirulina (these are optional!)


BERRIES:

1 cup frozen organic blueberries/raspberries (PC Organics carries a club pack of frozen Powerfruit: a delicious combination of cherries, blueberries & blackberries)


GREENS:

1/2 cup spinach/kale/arugula


HEALTHY FAT:

1/4 avocado/1 tbsp coconut manna (aka coconut butter)/nut butter


ALTERNATE MILK:

1 cup almond/cashew/Brazil nut/oat/hemp/rice milk (check out my blog recipe to make your own - it is way easier than you think!)


Other superfood options to add in to your premix if you like: maca, matcha, amla, raw cacao, or acai powder

Instructions:

  1. Premix and store in a mason jar in the fridge your seed & spice mixture. If you'll be having 7 smoothies in a week, premix 7 tbsp each seed, & 7 tsp turmeric/spirulina.

  2. Depending on the combination of premix ingredients you're using, add about 4 tbsp of your premix along with your alternate milk, berries, greens, and fat to a blender and blend until smooth.

  3. Pour into a mason jar to consume right away, or throw in a whisk ball to prevent thickening as you sip throughout the day.
