With the first week of the new year in the books and resolutions underway I'm going to be sharing a new detox, revitalising, energy boosting smoothie ever weekend through January. They're great for those of us who are looking to include more clean and healthy recipes into our lives. This set of smoothies provide an easy way to get a head start on your daily fruit and veg intake.
With the heavy dinners and rich deserts of the holiday season behind us nothing helps to reset and recharge your digestive system like a delicious super-food power smoothie. Smoothies are one of my favorite ways to start the day especially when I know I’m going to have a jam-packed day of working on my feet.
It's a bonus that they're so simple to make and so easy to swap in your favourite fruit and veggies. By including the right combination of ingredients, you can create smoothies that taste great and may even help you lose weight if that is your goal for 2019.
The smoothies I will be posting every weekend through January are perfect as part of a healthy breakfast, pre or post workout snack or a quick pick me up to help keep you full until your next meal.
Most of the smoothies are only 5 Ingredients or less and full of fiber, proteins, and healthy fats and are also completely SUGAR FREE, banana-free, vegan/dairy-free. They’re also perfect if you are looking for recipes that are paleo-friendly.
All of these recipes are sugar-free but depending on your diet and preference, you are totally free to add these refined sugar free options or a sweetener of your choice:
- maple syrup
- raw honey
- ripe banana
- dried dates
- fresh grapes
All of these recipes can be prepped ahead of time if your mornings are anything like mine, preparation is a must. Simply place the solid ingredients into a labeled zip-lock bag and store them in the freezer. Then in the morning, choose the smoothie flavor you feel like having that morning….add liquid and blend.
You can also change up the smoothies with any of these choices instead:
- coconut water
- green tea
- almond milk (or milk of your choice)
- ripened banana (adds thickness as well)
- water kefir
And the best part is, if you have a high powered blender, it whips all of these smoothies together in seconds.
CBD infused Blueberry, Blackberry, Kale SMOOTHIE
This great tasting refreshing smoothie is not only packed with a ton of anti-oxidants from the berries, but it’s also got a sneaky serving of kale which you can’t taste at all thanks to the sweetness from the tropical pineapple and blueberries.
- frozen blueberries
- Cannakinetic CBD Oil
- frozen pineapple chunks
