Superfood Smoothie Recipes
Yaaaaay! I have designed 2 Meal Prep Recipe eBooks that I am so excited about. One is low carb, and the other one is vegetarian. Each eBook is filled with 35 fuel-filled, meal-preppable recipes. There are ten breakfasts, ten on-the-go lunches, ten dinners, and five sacks in each eBook, which means ten days-worth of different meals that you can mix and match to create tons of new meal plans If you do not like eating the SAME meals all week, you do not have to! ALL of the smoothie recipes are dairy-free and gluten-free, many are also Whole 30 approved, and almost ALL of the recipes in the vegetarian eBook are also vegan or have vegan options That information is noted on every recipe, along with possible modifications, and the nutritional information.
Moreover, to make your meal prepping even easier, there are instructions on how to cook and store. Every recipe for meal-prepping purposes, including how long each recipe will last in the fridge or freezer. Both eBooks are available, and I hope they can be helpful for you in your healthy new year. Now onto the recipes! To kick off the New Year.
Quick & Delicious Superfood Breakfast Smoothie
These yummy smoothie recipes feature some lesser-known superfoods that are worth including in your diet. And they are a great on-the-go breakfast option! We hear about common superfoods like kale and blueberries so often because they are loaded with healthy nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants, but there are tons of other foods that are nutritional superstars.
They just aren’t talked about as much
Pomegranate Pear Smoothie Recipe
Pomegranate is a superfood that’s rich in antioxidants and polyphenols. It is more antioxidants than red wine or green tea. It is also rich in Vitamin C, it is anti-inflammatory, and can help prevent cancer, Alzheimer’s, and arthritis
Smoothie Recipes Banana
It also lowers blood pressure and prevents heart disease! I add chopped pears, frozen banana, frozen mixed berries. I am using strawberries and raspberries for the red colour— pomegranate arils, pomegranate juice and milk of choice For all of these smoothies you can use ANY milk you prefer— nut milk is a great way to keep them dairy free! Wowza! Look at that beautiful colour. It is sweet from the pear but has a hint of tartness from those berries and pomegranate arils So delicious.
Tropical Turmeric Smoothie!
Turmeric is ALL the rage right now It is a spice that’s extremely anti-inflammatory, and it is loaded with antioxidants. It helps to prevent cancer, Alzheimer’s, arthritis and helps fight depression! For this smoothie, I want to show you my favourite way to meal prep smoothies I add frozen pineapple, frozen mango, fresh peeled ginger, and turmeric into a freezer-safe plastic baggie I can then freeze it for up to a month! When I am ready to enjoy, I add the goods to my blender with milk and let it rip!
Benefits of Using Frozen Fruit To Make Smoothies
Using frozen fruit makes it so that I do not need to add ice to thicken the smoothie Voila! A delicious, superfood smoothie with a tropical flair! I love the vibrant colour, too! Remember, when it comes to health, eat the rainbow! Get creative with your freezer bag smoothies! This one is also from my brand new Vegetarian Meal Prep eBook— stick around to the end for, perhaps, a discount code. Next up is my morning matcha smoothie! Matcha is a green tea powder that’s metabolism boosting, a detoxifier, calming, vitamin-rich, and enhances mood and concentration! The real trick is learning how to choose GOOD matcha If you think you do not like matcha, you may have tried a low-quality variety, So try to find one from Japan.
It should be a super vibrant green. It should not be bitter and should be a bit sweet, and unfortunately, it will be a bit pricier for the good quality stuff With matcha, you do get what you pay for For this smoothie, I start with frozen ripe bananas. The more brown spots, the sweeter! Along with spinach, frozen if desired, frozen pineapple, coconut milk, and match, I am getting quite a few superfoods into this baby! Honestly, I throw spinach into a smoothie as much as possible because it is the easiest way to get those greens in and you do not even taste it. This baby is a satisfyingly sweet breakfast! Thumbs up for sneaking those veggies in!
Blueberry Acai Smoothie
Acai is one of the healthiest berries in existence from the Amazon! It is healing, immune-stimulating and energy-boosting, and filled with antioxidants. It is heart healthy, helps with digestion, weight loss and has anti-ageing effects! You cannot eat the whole berry, so you find it in frozen packets or powder form. I prefer the frozen packets. I do have an acai episode if you want more information on the super-fruit and some cool recipes I add a packet of that frozen acai, frozen blueberries, a frozen banana, almond milk, some Greek yogurt.— Me feel free to use coconut or soy to keep this vegan— and maple syrup or honey, whatever suits you.
I love the deep rich colour of this one; it is hard to believe that colour is from natural existing whole foods! Very cool and extremely refreshing!

The last one of the day is my sweet potato pecan smoothie. Sweet potato is a surprising superfood, but they are super vitamin rich. Loaded with vitamin B6, C, and D, as well as iron, magnesium, and potassium, Because the natural sugars released slowly. Since they are a complex carbohydrate, they will not cause blood sugar spikes I add sweet potato puree, pecan milk (if you can find it), coconut milk yogurt, maple syrup, chopped pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg and ice cubes to the blender It is like Thanksgiving in a smoothie!
