Instead of turning to energy bars when your feeling tired and need a boost of energy, why not make yourself a delicious energy boosting smoothie. It will do wonders for your skin , hair and it will def give you that kick of energy you need for the day.
Here are 5 delicious energy smoothies we think you’d love :
1# MANGO BLUEBERRY BLISS SMOOTHIE
1 mango, peeled and cubed
1 pint of blueberries
1 banana (frozen or fresh)
1 teaspoon of maple syrup.
1 cup non-dairy milk of choice (almond, soy, or coconut are recommended)
Puree all ingredients together in a blender, and enjoy. A handful of chopped ice can be added if desired.
#2 Berry Boost Smoothie
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup blackberries
1/2 cup cherries
1 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon flax oil
1 teaspoon honey
dash of cinnamon
Blend all of the ingredients together until smooth and creamy.
#3 Green Goddess Juice
1/2 a cucumber, peeled and sliced
1 stalk of celery
1 handful of kale
1 apple, peeled and sliced
1 pear, peeled and sliced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Juice all of the ingredients in order, ending with the lemon juice. If you find that the juice is too thick, pour a bit of water into your juicer to get the last bits of goodness out, and dilute the end product.
#4 Banana, Almond Milk, and Matcha Energizing Smoothie
2 frozen bananas
1 Cup romaine lettuce
2 Cups almond milk
1-2 Teaspoon matcha powder
1-2 Teaspoon honey
Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. I love this smoothie because it’s one of many takes on a green tea latte. The matcha powder is smooth, earthy, and slightly bitter, and balances beautifully with sweet bananas and honey. If you don’t have matcha powder on hand, brew two cups of green tea and chill in the fridge, Use this in place of the almond milk and then throw in ¼ cup of almonds (or the nut of your choice).
#5 MULBERRY, LAVENDER, AND KALE ENERGIZING SMOOTHIE
1 cup fresh mulberries (or ½ cup dried)
1 cup kale
1 tablespoon dried lavender
2 cups apple juice
½ cup rolled oats
¼ cup raw cashews
1 teaspoon lucuma powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. The lavender complements the mulberries beautifully and adds a calm edge to the energizing kale, berries, cashews, and oats.
