Superfood Energizer Smoothie

Superfood Energizer SmoothieThis is one of those throw in everything but the kitchen sink superfood smoothies.

Smoothies can be like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get when you fill your blender with an array of superfoods. That’s not entirely true, you know you’re going to get an extremely healthy concoction that’s typically quite tasty.

This recipe is the brainchild of one of my readers, Ian, who has proven he’s quite masterful at the art of crafting superfood smoothies. Ian was kind enough to pass along this recipe for me to post on my site. He mentioned that there was nothing scientific about his effort. That’s an important statement I want to expound on.

When I first started making smoothies I was insanely meticulous about following the recipe and measuring out every ingredient. It took me several months to realize every smoothie recipe in existence is merely a blueprint for whatever I fancied. This is one of the concepts I want people to keep in mind.

This site contains hundreds of smoothie recipes. Make them as is, or create your own healthy masterpieces. The latter is what I encourage. And please don’t fret over precisely measuring each ingredient. Honestly, the only time I measure is for the recipes I post on my site.

I usually touch on health benefits of each smoothie, but one look at the ingredients and you know this smoothie is uber healthy :) Enjoy!

Superfood Energizer Smoothie Recipe

The Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 cup tropical fruit (pineapple, mango, papaya or a combo)
  • 1/2 cup spinach
  • 1/2 cup kale
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons goji berries
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flakes
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon maca
  • 1 teaspoon wheatgrass powder
  • A little honey, maple syrup, or stevia to sweeten (optional)

The Add-ons

No add-ons necessary :) If there’s an ingredient or two you’d like to include, go for it.

Show Time

Place all of the ingredients into your high-speed blender and blend for around 30-45 seconds or until nice and smooth. If you don’t have a very powerful blender and your coconut oil is in liquid form, you might want to blend everything except the coconut oil first, then drizzle it on and blend for another 5-10 seconds to avoid clumping.

    This one was tasty…I doubled the recipe for my boyfriend and myself…I also added chaga, reishi, tocotrienols, super greens powder and camu camu…still delish! Tell me what you think of these additions.
    Looking forward to more of your recipes…I have a smoothie everyday for breakfast and sometimes for lunch if I am too hungry to prepare something.

    I love ur smoothies but how big of a glass does it make.

      Hi Pattie,

      This smoothie is larger than most on my site, which are typically about 1.5 cups. This is closer to 2.5 cups. Feel free to reduce the amount of each ingredient for a smaller serving size.

      Regards,
      Ryan
