Power UP with a Delicious and Nutritious Superfood Smoothie

Updated: Feb 9


One of my favorite parts of starting the day is when I wake up and realize I get to make a nutrient-packed green smoothie. It kickstarts the digestive processes after ending a 12-15 hour fast and sets me up for energy success with protein, fat, healthy carbs and fiber that carry me through a busy day.


My smoothies have evolved over the years as I am constantly tweaking them for flavor and trying out new superfood ingredients because I want them to not only taste delicious, but to pack a nutritional punch.


So, I thought I would share my latest go-to with you…try it and let me know if you like it!


Power Up Superfood Smoothie

(Be sure to use fresh, organic ingredients)


1 Banana

¼ cup Blueberries

Handful of Baby Spinach (or use whatever greens you have on hand)

2 Tbsp. Ground Flaxseed Meal

1 Tbsp. Unsweetened Coconut Flakes

1 Tbsp. Cacao Powder (not cocoa powder)

1 Tbsp. Chia Seeds

Thoroughly blend all of the ingredients except for the chia seeds. (I use an immersion blender stick, which I love:))


After blending, mix in the chia seeds and enjoy!!!
