I’m making a bold claim with the title of this smoothie, but hear me out.
In my quest to have the best day ever, the alchemist in me came out as I threw every superfood in my kitchen into the blender. The result, a delicious, creamy, and outrageously healthy superfood smoothie.
Obviously, “the healthiest smoothie ever” is subjective and will vary from person to person depending on your physiology and bio-individuality. But, if you make this smoothie with at least half of the ingredients it calls for, there’s a good chance it will rank near the top of your all-time healthiest smoothies list – maybe even number one.
Superfoods are a quick and easy way to really boost the nutrition of your smoothies. I consider a food super if it contains high amounts of several different vitamins or minerals and confers a half dozen or more health benefits. Take goji berries for example.
Goji’s are a complete protein source containing 19 different amino acids, contain over 21 trace minerals including zinc, iron, copper, calcium, and selenium, and contain vitamins B1, B2, B6, and vitamin E. They are an anti-oxidant powerhouse often containing 4 times the amount as blueberries. These nutrient dense red berries are considered an adaptogen, meaning they help the body adapt to stress, are known for improving vision, enhancing libido, and boosting the immune system. They’re also renowned for being one of the premier longevity foods in the entire cornucopia of Chinese herbs, which is what I like best about them :)
As you can imagine, combining several or more superfoods into one smoothie results in some serious nutrition.
One thing I’ve yet to encounter when mixing and matching the various superfoods, a smoothie that doesn’t taste great. Superfoods really do compliment each other nicely.
Oh yeah, I did have the best day ever after guzzling this smoothie down for breakfast. Enjoy!
The Healthiest Smoothie Ever Recipe
- 1 and 1/2 cups spring water
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds or chia seed gel
- 2 tablespoons goji berries
- 1/2 tablespoon cacao powder
- 1/2 tablespoon maca
- 1/2 tablespoon spirulina
- 1/2 tablespoon bee pollen
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon colostrum (fresh or powdered supplement)
- 1 serving chocolate Sun Warrior protein
- 1 serving Ormus Supergreens
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- A dash of Celtic sea salt
- 1/2 tablespoon honey (substitute maple syrup or stevia)
- Any superfood you have on hand
- 1 cup spinach
- 1/2 cup frozen berries
Load all these wonderful superfoods into your high speed blender and blend for around 30-45 seconds or until your desired consistency is reached. 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.
