SPRING RESET SMOOTHIE RECIPES

SPRING RESET SMOOTHIE RECIPES

Fresh vegetable and fruit smoothies are deeply cleansing, alkalizing and nourishing. They are easy to digest and a great way to start the day.  Here are some important considerations when making your smoothies:

Options for liquid base:

  • Pure, filtered water is the simplest, most affordable option.  
  • Coconut water is a great base for smoothies as it contains electrolyte minerals which nourish, hydrate and energize.  It also adds sweetness. Be sure to purchase pure coconut water as some brands contain sugar and additives.  Consider diluting coconut water with filtered water.
  • Easy homemade almond milk:  For a creamier consistency make your own almond milk in a Vitamix or Ninja.  Simply add 4 tbsp of almond butter to 4 cups of water, blend and refrigerate.  Or make a single serving by adding 1 tbsp of almond butter to 1.5 cups water and blend before adding your smoothie ingredients.
  • Premade plant based milk:  Canned organic coconut milk (dilute with water), Califia almond milk, Elmhurst nut milks are the purest options - check labels for sugars and additives with other brands.

Green Superfood powders like VegeGreens, Perfect Greens, Barley or Wheat Grass, Moringa or Spirulina powders make an amazing addition to smoothies as they contain a wide range of antioxidants, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber which cleanse, nourish, energize, alkalize and purify our cells and body. Add a Green Powder to your smoothie or enjoy it first thing in the morning or in the afternoon as a refreshing “pick up” in water.

Super Seed Mix:  For a 10 day smoothie supply, you will need: 1/2 cup each flax, hemp, chia and sesame as well as 2 cups of pumpkin seeds. Combine and mix flax, hemp, chia and sesame in a jar.  Keep a jar of pumpkin seeds separate. It is recommended to add 3 tbsp of mixed seeds and 3 tbsp pumpkin seeds to each smoothie recipe daily.  The addition of seeds to smoothies increases fiber, protein, and essential fats. This will provide approximately 15 grams of protein in your smoothie.

Cultured Coconut Probiotic:  Add 1 tbsp of Cultured Coconut to your smoothie for additional gut support. Those who are new to this product are advised to start with 1 tsp daily, gradually increasing to 1 tbsp (3 tsp) over a week.
