Staples for a Killer Smoothie Pantry

These powerhouse superfoods have been known to prevent cancer, lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, lower your risk for stroke, boost your energy and immune system!

Protein

I am a huge fan of vegan protein (dairy, gluten and soy free). I find that this hypoallergenic protein is gentle enough for almost everyone, yet has enough protein for professional athletes. 

Coconut Meat

Coconut meat is rich in essential fatty acids. It’s naturally alkalizing and super hydrating. If coconut meat is not available, try substituting with organic coconut oil.

Raw Cacao

Cacao has tons of health benefits! It is also one of the highest antioxidant foods out there. The ORAC chart, which measures antioxidant levels, puts raw cacao at about 95,000…to put it in perspective blueberries are 2,000.

Goji Berries or Goji Berry Powder

This superfood comes from the Himalayas and is packed with potassium, vitamin A, antioxidants, and even a bit of protein.

Acai has certainly earned its name as one of the top superfoods. This low-glycemic, high-vitamin-C food is packed with fiber and healthy fats and is known for its anti-aging properties.

This incredible superfood is known for increasing energy and stamina, as well as providing adrenal and thyroid support. Maca has been proven to increase libido, balance hormones, and increase fertility.

Packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants, this anti-viral superfood is sure to boost your immune system. Camu Powder has also been used as an antidepressant to balance your mood and energy. This superfood enhances nervous system function, specifically for the eyes and brain and helps to decrease inflammation in the body.

This tiny food packs a big punch! Loaded with Vitamin B12, minerals, protein, fatty acids and enzymes. This powerful food contains antibacterial, antiviral and anti fungal properties which help to boost the immune system, decrease inflammation and lower cholesterol levels in our bodies. *Avoid if you are allergic to bees*

Spirulina

This blue green algae is an excellent source of iron, manganese, chromium and vitamins A, K and B12. Spirunlina, closely related to chlorella, is truly a superfood with more iron than spinach and more beta carotene than carrots. This algae is a powerful heavy metal detoxifyer and aids in the elimination of candida overgrowth in our body. Spirulina will boost your energy and help speed up your weight loss.
