Here is my recipe for a superfood powder smoothie mix. The mix only has 5 ingredients, but, it is very versatile and can be used with many other ingredients in order to create a wide variety of smoothies. You can experiment with this recipe and other ingredients to create a superfood smoothie that agrees with your taste buds.
Due to the raw cacao, which contains caffeine, the smoothie mix can serve as an alternative to your morning coffee. The amount of caffeine in cacao is much lower than in coffee and will not cause an addiction or withdrawal symptoms when the consumption is stopped.
Making the superfood powder smoothie mix will save you a lot of time in the long run because you won’t have to dig out and measure all ingredients every time you want to make a smoothie.
Ingredients for the Superfood Powder Smoothie Mix:
8 tbsp. Raw Cacao Powder
4 tbsp. Maca Powder
2 tbsp. Carob Powder
2 tsp. Ashwagandha Powder
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
Mix the above ingredients and store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
Additional and Optional Ingredients (to be added when making the smoothie):
Water or Nut Milk (You can make the milk from your favorite nut or seed. How to Make Nut Milk)
Tea (honey lemon, dandelion root, ginger, peppermint) or your favorite tea to go with a chocolate flavor.)
Sweetener (honey, agave, stevia, or any other sweetener. You can also do a combination of different sweeteners in order to bring out a unique sweet flavor.)
Other Superfood Powders (kapikachu, triphala, marshmallow root powder, a small amount of senna, or any other superfood powder that you have on hand)
Spices (cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger or any others that you like)
To make a 1 1/2 cup superfood powder smoothie you will need:
1 tbsp. Superfood Powder Smoothie Mix
1 tbsp. Coconut Oil
1 tsp. Honey (or your sweetener of choice)
1.5 cups Hot/Warm Water, Tea or Nut Milk.
My favorite teas to add to this mix are peppermint, honey lemon and dandelion root. I also like to go half and half between almond nut milk and hot water or a tea. The nut milk adds a rich and creamy texture to the smoothie.
Other powders can be added in small amounts to your liking. My favorites are a tsp. of triphala or kapikachu, and a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg or cloves.
You can experiment with this recipe and find out what you like best. The possibilities are endless as you can mix the ingredients up and add many other ingredients. The key is to come up with the right combination that suits your unique taste buds.
