This has been one of my favorite power smoothies I’ve ever made since my kick starting in July 2010. I make one smoothie almost every morning for my overall well being. I bought a Vita-Mix blender after a breakup (don’t ask) and it’s been my new boyfriend for about four years making fruit shakes until I worked with an holistic therapist who told me to make a basic breakfast smoothie with a base of kale, any fruit, maca powder, chia seeds, flax, and hemp protein. I’ve been doing that religiously for about a year.
Here’s my gorgeous, chocolate acai smoothie. Acai is a superfruit from the Amazon, and the way it’s harvested does not harm the rainforests. You can find a puree in the frozen section of most health grocery stores in packets from the brand Sambazon. I also use Amazing Greens powder which has acai, as well as flax and maca. So that’s been pretty convenient for my diet. I also got these gorgeous black and red currents from the farmer’s market which add a sweet-tart luxuriousness.
1 scoop Chocolate Amazing Greens powder
1 packet frozen acai puree
1/2 cup currants
1 cup water
3 kale leaves
You can add ice if you want a thicker consistency.
