Give your smoothie an added nutritional boost with this Smoothie Booster. Customize it to suit your needs.
I don't know about you, but I am always adding superfoods to my smoothies. Recently I realized how time consuming it is opening up all the containers each time I make a smoothie.
I decided to save myself time by combining all of them into a mason jar so that I only have one container to open. Think of it as meal prepping smoothie addition.
The mixture below represents what I am currently putting into my smoothie, minus my all-in-one shake. I left it out because you probably use a different one or none at all.
I am constantly changing or tweaking what I put into my smoothie, as you probably do too. So this recipe is more of a guide to inspire you. You can omit or add whatever you like.
Why These Ingredients?
- Cacao powder - for taste and antioxidants
- Chia seeds - for omega 3's, protein, and fiber
- Mushroom powder - for immune support
- Maca - for energy and stamina
- Matcha green tea - for the antioxidants, slow caffeine release, and numerous other benefits
- Ground ginger - for taste and anti-inflammatory properties
- Turmeric - for anti-inflammatory properties
The ingredients I've included in this recipe have many benefits. I put the main reasons that I take them.
You may want to do your own research on their benefits. I am not a doctor or in the medical field.Give your smoothie an added nutritional boost with this Smoothie Booster. Customize it to suit your needs. Click To Tweet
How to Make This Recipe
Mix cacao powder, chia seeds, mushroom powder, maca, matcha green tea, ground ginger, and turmeric with a whisk or fork to get out clumps.
Other Possible Additions
- Protein powder or an all-in-one shake
- Flax seeds
- Hemp seeds
- Beet powder
- Probiotic powder (store in the fridge if using)
- Spirulina or chlorella
- Nutritional yeast (It adds a cheesy flavor - so don't use too much. I've used it recently. If you have enough fruit you can't really taste it.)
- Use a wide mouth jar so that you can get a scoop in and out.
- To figure out how much you'll be using per serving, just mix 1 serving's worth into a bowl and measure it. Then, add in each ingredient by multiplying by the number of days you want to have stocked up. (This is may sound obvious, but I figured I'd write out my process just in case it isn't.)
