The nice thing about this Superpower Smoothie Bowl by Amy Height is that it’s thick enough to support some deliciously textured superfoods on top: in this version, raw cacao, bee pollen and hemp seeds. Of course, you could add on whatever you like: goji berries, fresh fruit, coconut, nuts, homemade granola, whatever speaks to you.
5. 4-Ingredient Green Smoothie
This 4-Ingredient Green Smoothie by Christina Bedetta is ideal for anyone who is skeptical about drinking their greens! With just four simple ingredients, it can be made in a pinch, and, although it is packed with plenty of nutritious, super-alkalizing greens, you would never sense it from the flavor alone (the vibrant green color is the giveaway). The key to achieving a wonderful sweet flavor in this smoothie is to make sure your bananas are nice and ripe (as bananas ripen, more and more of their starch content gets converted to sugar, perfect for naturally sweetened recipes!).

Nitrogen-rich vegetables like beets help increase blood flow to the muscles which speeds up your recovery time and boosts your energy. The bananas contain potassium to avoid muscle cramping, the flax provides good fats loaded with heart-healthy omegas, hemp provides a small protein boost, and cinnamon helps the pancreas metabolize the sugar from the beets/fruit.
