Instructions

Step 1

If you have a high-speed blender like a Vitamix, combine all ingredients together and blend on high. If you have a less powerful blender, you might need to put ingredients in one at a time (liquid first) and blend each until smooth.

Step 2

If you need more muscle-building calories after a workout, add some protein powder. If you’re looking to pack as many micronutrients as possible into your smoothie, incorporate any of the other optional add-ons.

Optional add-ons:

Plant-based protein powder (both chocolate and vanilla flavors work well)
Supergreens like chlorella, spirulina, etc.
Beets (raw)
Dates (for sweetness)
Frozen broccoli
Maca powder

If you have these basic elements in your fridge, pantry, and freezer at all times, you’ll be able to put together a great-tasting and highly functional blended meal. This recipe will provide you with a full spectrum of macronutrients and a load of micronutrients to help fuel your day and recover from your workouts. And you can always add on or tweak various ingredients to your taste and needs.
