Superfood Smoothie

Here you have two of my favourite superfoods in one super smoothie! But don’t forget that just like goji berries and raw cacao, you have a few other ‘super’ foods in this one too, such as kale, blueberries, and even lucuma. Essentially, it’s an all-round winner for your health!

Goji berries are one of the best berries you can include in your diet and also bring a touch of colour to recipes. They are especially high in vitamin C and fibre, whilst also being a great plant-based source of iron and vitamin A. They also pack a decent dose of protein and are fairly low calorie.

Blueberries are another fantastic type of berry and are generally more well-known than goji berries. Blueberries are bursting with antioxidants and research has shown that they are particularly good for brain health and the nervous system. Certain studies have even suggested they can help to improve memory function. When you freeze blueberries you will preserve the nutrients within, so it’s always a good idea to stock up when they are in season and enjoy throughout the year. A one cup serving of these berries will provide your body with ample vitamin K, manganese, vitamin C, fibre and copper, among many other health boosting vitamins and minerals.

Superfood Smoothie2To make enough of this super smoothie for one or two people, you will need the following ingredients:

1 tbsp of goji berries
2 cups / 16fl oz / 450ml of coconut water
1 banana, peeled
1 tsp of lucuma powder
1 tsp of raw cacao
1/2 cup / 2oz / 55g of blueberries
A handful of kale

You will first need to pre-soak the goji berries in a bowl of cold water for ten minutes before draining and rinsing. You can then place the berries in a blender with the rest of the ingredients and blitz for one to two minutes, or until smooth. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Hemp Seed Smoothie Bowl

Think of this as almost like a chocolate milkshake but one that is actually filled with all things good! You might think that this is impossible…..but give this one a go and I think you’ll agree it’s thick, creamy, and slightly chocolatey too!

If you haven’t heard the hype about hemp seeds yet then you are certainly missing out! They are loaded with goodness, from healthy fats to an abundance of protein and essential nutrients. The omega-3 fatty acids found within hemp seeds are great for nourishing your mind as well as your heart. This kind of fat reduces inflammation in the body as well as promoting cognitive function and memory. For this reason, having one of my hemp seed smoothie bowls first thing in the morning can really help you to start the day with your best foot forwards!

Hemp seeds are also amazing because they contain all of the essential amino acids. This makes them a complete source of protein which is fantastic for those on a purely plant-based diet. Just three tablespoons of these seeds equates to 10 grams of seriously high-quality protein!

Hemp Seed Smoothie Bowl2To make this smoothie bowl for two people, you will need the following ingredients:

2 cups / 5oz / 140g of spinach
2 cups / 5oz / 140g of kale
1/2 a cucumber, roughly chopped
1 ripe banana
1/2 an avocado, peeled and de-stoned
1 tbsp of hemp seeds
1 tsp of spirulina
1 cup / 8fl oz / 225ml of coconut milk
1 tbsp of raw cacao
A handful of ice (optional)

Hemp Seed Smoothie BowlTo make this smoothie bowl, all you need to do is place all of the ingredients (except the ice) into a blender. You can then blitz for approximately two minutes, or until the mixture becomes thick and creamy.

If you want to chill the smoothie, you can then add the ice to the blender and blitz again. Once everything is combined together, spoon it into bowls and serve immediately.
