Kick-Start Your Day with One of These Delicious Smoothies

There’s no need to think in the morning when you have one of these delicious recipes in mind!

Smoothies are great kick-start to your day. They’re an amazing way to add greens to your diet, pack in loads of essential vitamins and minerals, and increase your healthy fiber, carbohydrates, and protein intake. Of course, if you’re new to the smoothie culture, it could be quite daunting, and there will be quite a few, “What did I just make!” moments.

All of these smoothies simply need to be blended until smooth.

Vitamin C Boost

Oranges are high in phytonutrients like citrus flavonoids and a variety of other polyphenols. Water-soluble antioxidants in the body prevent cell damage and help to build a stronger immune system. Vitamin C also prevents the oxidation of free radicals and cholesterol, therefore preventing cancer. This drink will not only wake up every cell in your body, it will also make your body clean and strong.

What do you need?

  • Juice of 2 navel oranges
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup

Berry Smoothie

Berries are known to be high in antioxidants and fiber; they also contain cancer-fighting properties. Organic berries, along with healthy fats from coconut meat and coconut water, will take your potassium and magnesium levels up a notch while decreasing your LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol. Just one cup of this yummy berry drink a day goes a long way.

What do you need?

  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 banana
  • 3 to 4 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup coconut meat

Pineapple Coconut

When combined, pineapple and coconut taste tangy, sweet, smooth, and delicious. Pineapple is rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, and manganese. It’s also packed with digestive enzymes called bromelain, which improve digestion and prevent bloating and nausea. The healthy fats from coconut and the elegance of vanilla mix with pineapple to form a match made in heaven.

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup pineapple, frozen
  • 2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla bean
  • 1 tablespoon sage honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes

Yogi Blend

Matcha tea, a powder ground from tea leaves, is a powerful antioxidant. It’s used in Japan during meditation because it contains an amino acid called L-Theanine, which relaxes the nervous system. You can feel both alert and calm while drinking green matcha tea. It’s also a great energy booster and doesn’t act as a diuretic like coffee. Dates are high in iron, improve digestion, and produce serotonin, which helps with insomnia. This is the perfect drink to keep you feeling energized yet relaxed.

What do you need?

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon green matcha tea powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 to 4 dates, pitted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla, extracted from bean
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
