Superfood smoothies that kickstart every morning!

Posted by

When the alarm buzzes, you've got two choices as we see it:

  1. Slam your hand down fast and furious on the Snooze button and attempt to enjoy 9 more minutes of sleep. (These 9 minutes, for the record, are NEVER glorious)
  2. Get up. Stretch. Open the curtains. And power up the Vitamix, baby! 

Naturally, we recommend #2. Though admit to having fallen victim to #1 more times than naught. 

KICKSTART YOUR DAY WITH THESE SUPERFOODS!

ACAI
A delicious little berry that packs some serious antioxidant punch. It's a disease-fighting machine. And it kinda tastes like red wine – so, win-win.

We're fans of the Acai-Cherry Smoothie from Incredible Smoothies. Drink up and feel great!

SPINACH
There's a reason that Popeye downed this green superfood by the can! It's actually the world's healthiest veggie in terms of nutrient-richness. Seriously – it should have a cape! Spinach is full of vitamins, minerals, plus disease-fighting phytonutrients like carotenoids and flavonoids. Which basically means: It packs a mean antioxidant punch. Your immune system will do cartwheels with glee. 

We drink this Citrus Flax Spinach Smoothie by Culinary Hill before our eyes are even completely open. It's that good!

CHIA SEEDS
Add chia to any smoothie recipe in the morning, and this superfood will give your liquid breakfast a jolt! They're packed full of omega 3 fatty acids, which your skin will thank you for later.

WHEATGRASS
Each little blade of this wonder plant is superpowered. Wheatgrass is chock full of vitamins A, B-Complex, C, E, I and K. Plus, it's rich in protein AND 17 – yes, 17! – amino acids. Need we say more?!

Blend that good green stuff up in this superfood Energizing Green Smoothie from In Sonnet's Kitchen. Zing!
