Ya’ll know I’m smoothie obsessed…and for good reason! What better way to fuel up on nutrition, minerals, vitamins, veggies, and fruits! I also LOVE to add superfoods to my shakes for extra super powers.
Some of my favourites are:
However, when you’re in a hurry in the morning unsealing all these different bags and fiddling with a little bit from each container, makes adding those special ingredients a little tedious. Not to mention, how expensive it is to buy a bunch of different superfoods when, if you’re like me, you mostly use them in just smoothies.
My friend Sophie from Philosophie recently emailed me about her products. I checked out her site and was totally excited about what she was doing. I’m a huge fan of raw, organic superfoods and how they help our body heal, recover, and keep healthy. Not to mention, she’s such a sweetie – I enjoy following her on Instagram. She’s awesome.
Sophie sent me a couple of her superfood blends and they aaamaaazing. I feel awesome after one of her shakes because it totally fuels up my “energy” tank!
Why the superfood blend is absolute genius:
- Convenience. Just add 1-2 Tablespoons of the blend to your smoothie (or more!) instead of different measurements from each one…the work is already done.
- Saves money. No need to purchase all the superfoods separately anymore.
- Highest Antioxidant scoring of any food on the PLANET.
- Completely Organic
- 100% Raw & Vegan
- Certified Fair-Trade
- Promotes weight loss (for anyone replacing one smoothie as a meal)
- Increases natural energy gain (no caffeine)
- Helps with mental clarity and focus
Ever since I got the superfoods, I’ve been a fanatic of the Green Dream blend. It contains spirulina, fresh vanilla pod, raw vegan sprouted protein powder (hemp), maca (balances mood, high in iron and protein), tocos (vit.E), chia seeds, mesquite and chlorella. I’ve also been feeling under the weather lately (fighting a cold) so this was the PERFECT thing to help heal me up.
I’ve also been loving the Cacao Magic blend. It has little bits of cacao nibs in the mix, which actually kept me digging in the bag and eating the power straight. Yes, I have the ability to eat plain, dusty cocoa. I’m a true chocolate lover.
It’s awesome because it has Chinese medicinal mushrooms- reishi, cordyceps, chaga, maca, cacao powder & nibs, chia seeds, tocos and fresh vanilla. Superfood heaven.
I made a chocolate shake the other day and I remembered to write down the recipe, so I thought I’d share the deliciousness with you.
Magical Cacao Smoothie
- 3/4 cup raw almond milk
- 2 tbsp. Cacao Magic blend
- 1 tsp. organic peanut butter
- 1 tsp. raw coconut oil
- 1 tsp. maple syrup
- 1 frozen banana
- 10 drops of cocoa stevia
- 3-6 ice cubes
I blended all that goodness up and topped it with hempseeds. Yum city.
(Love my cocoa stevia – no cals and a lot of flavour!)
Anyway, I’m loving these dreamy superfood blends and I’m using them all the time! I even made GREEN superfood protein pancakes the other day! I feel like they really help me with energy.
I’ll share the recipe with you soon! Also, it’s worth mentioning that Sophie has some delicious looking recipes on her site which I’m dying to try. I’m looking forward to making her Healing Hot Chocolate, Superfood Breakfast Oatmeal, and the Mint Cacao Smoothie. Mmmm…
Don’t forget to check out Sophie’s blog – she’s such an inspiring, beautiful lady. Hope you enjoyed today’s post and can check out her site!
What’s your favourite superfood? Mine is cacao (basically chocolate – no surprise there!).
