The word "superfood" gets thrown around alot...so what actually is a superfood?





A superfood is any food that contains more phytonutrients and antioxidants compared to other food items and is therefore considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being.

This smoothie contains multiple superfoods and is sure to keep you satiated and energized for hours so you can accomplish your goals!

The combination of fiber, slow-digesting carbohydrates, and healthy fats is a winning tag team to help you take on your day all the while nourishing your body!

Enjoy!



Prep Time

I had a baked sweet potato and chia seed pudding already made, making my prep time shorter. I would advise doing the same so that you can have the ingredients ready to prepare this awesome smoothie!

Cooking Time

15 minutes

Yields

1 10-ounce smoothie + 1 serving of chia seed pudding

Ingredients

For the smoothie:

  • 1.5 C unsweetened nut milk (I used almond)

  • 1.2 C frozen cauliflower

  • 1/4 of a medium avocado

  • 1 scoop Vibrant Greens Powder from Vibrant Health (or similar greens powder)

  • 1/4 C baked sweet potato

  • 2 T Raw Cacao Powder (I used Himalania brand)

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 dropper full of Sweet Leaf Vanilla stevia (you may also use agave, maple syrup, honey, etc.)

For the chia seed pudding:

  • 2 T chia seeds

  • 1/2 cup nut milk

*Optional toppings:

  • strawberries

  • almond butter

Instructions

For chia seed pudding:

  1. It is best to make this the night before by adding 1/2 cup almond milk to a small jar and then adding the chia seeds on top to avoid getting them stuck to the bottom of the jar.

  2. Either mix with a spoon or put the lid on the jar and shake until combined.

For the smoothie:

  1. Add all ingredients for smoothie to a high-powered blender and blend until smooth

  2. Add to a jar and top the smoothie with the chia seed pudding and optional toppings.

Sip, enjoy, and crush the day!
