Acai Superfood Smoothie

A smoothie is a great pick-me-up. I like to drink mine a couple hours after lunch when my energy levels are going down. I don’t use recipes for my smoothies – just basically throw whatever leftover fruits and veggies I have around. But that does mean I need to make sure I always have a variety of fruits and veggies on hand. One thing I always try to do is add a protein to my smoothie. This makes the smoothie much more filling. Protein also slows the conversion of carbs to glucose, so you don’t get a sugar rush from the smoothie.

You can also add other superfoods to your smoothies, like:

  • Cacao powder
  • Maca
  • Chia
  • Hemp
  • Vanilla
  • Mushroom powder
  • Mesquite
  • Green powders (spirulina, chlorophyll, wheat grass…)
  • Berries (acai, goji, pomegranate…)

If you drink smoothies a lot, consider buying a superfood powder mix (or make your own mix) so you can easily add a scoop to each smoothie you make.
