Save money and time by getting our Organic Weight Loss Superfood Smoothie Bundle!
This organic weight loss superfood smoothie offers key nutrients to keep you energized, alert, and full.
Making an organic superfood smoothie every morning as part of your daily ritual is a smart investment of your time and money. Especially if you are a busy bee trying to lose weight or a beginner who wants to increase your intake of superfoods or veggies.
With the flip of a blender you can get an entire meal, key nourishment, and give your day more bam and pow!
With that said, not all smoothies are created equal!
After speaking to raw-food aficionados, nutritionists, and doing research and lots of testing, I came up with this recipe for a great-tasting weight loss superfood smoothie.
In my opinion, most smoothies have too much carbs, sugar, or fillers. Many also they tell you to mix fruit and veggies, which ideally you shouldn’t, with the exception of berries and the occasional banana.
When I discovered I had food sensitivities (even before I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia), I made it a mission to avoid gluten, dairy, and sugar. No longer able to eat many foods, I turned to the world of superfoods.
The Joy of Superfoods
Superfoods are a special category of foods found in nature. They are calorie sparse and nutrient dense, meaning they pack a lot of punch for their weight as far as goodness goes. They are superior sources of antioxidants and essential nutrients — nutrients we need but cannot make ourselves.
Eating superfoods can reduce the risk of chronic disease and prolong your life. People who eat superfoods are overall healthier, more energized, and have healthier weight compared to those who don’t.
Over the past decade of eating consciously and making my superfood smoothie part of my daily routine, I’ve gone from 138 pounds to an amazing 110. My food choices are important, but I also practice yoga, hike, cycle and swim frequently. My body has changed dynamically! I’m leaner – and longer, too.
Benefits of Blending
You realize that, when you eat raw vegan protein and real food dense with nutrition, you don’t need to eat as much. It’s the quality that counts and the most important thing is to eat for your body. This means acknowledging that processed foods, dairy, sugar, and wheat don’t offer you anything but anguish and blubber. Just look around and wonder why most people look doughy. Make the commitment to yourself is the first step.
The bottom line is this: The best way to get nutrition is from healthy, organic, and nutrient dense foods. By consuming this weight loss superfood smoothie every day, you are getting nutrients that would normally take a few meals, in a matter of a few sips.
If you suffer from an autoimmune condition, you need to keep inflammation down, down, down. One morsel of gluten can trigger an inflammatory response that can last weeks. Is it really worth it?
Having one blended meal a day also gives your digestion system a break since you don’t’ have to work so hard to digest pureed food. Also, my superfood smoothie contains an organic vegan source of protein (no crappy whey) to keeps you full. Whey is composed of bovine blood proteins, serum albumen, lactalbumen, dead white blood cells, and hormonal residues including estrogen, progesterone, and IGF-1 (insulin growth factor 1).
I drink my smoothie at about 9 a.m. and I am instantly ready to tackle the long day ahead. Even better it keeps me full till about 1 pm or 2pm, depending on my early morning and afternoon activities.

Here’s a funny video on smoothies, although we don’t encourage solo fruit smoothies because that just offers sugar. Instead, you can incorporate wild blueberries into our mix which are loaded with vitamins, fiber and antioxidants, or a banana to get your carb/sugar fix.
