Candy Cane Superfood Smoothie


Ho Ho Ho and a glass of...Superfoods?!
Yes girl, you've probably seen me post about these a thousand times, but I can't help it...my health has changed SIGNIFICANTLY since I started drinking my daily smoothies and I want to pay it forward! And can I just say they're freaking DELICIOUS?!

For the past 4 years, I've had my superfood smoothie every single day. I now have it as one of my meals when I break my fast. It's a full meal, and as a college student when I first started drinking them....I NEEDED the nutrients.

Unfortunately with soil depletion, we simply don't get the nutrients our body craves...even if we eat 5 servings of veggies per day! So my smoothie fills that gap for me!! :) As well as it having some protein in it, there’s over 70 superfoods, prebiotics, probiotics, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, digestive enzymes, adaptogen herbs, antioxidants, and SO much goodness. It’s all conveniently in a serving per day.

I could honestly talk about this forever because I’m most passionate about amazing vegan nutrition! I know it has completely changed how I view my lifestyle; my skin has cleared up, it’s helped me maintain my weight, it’s the most consistent food in my diet, I have so much energy from it, my cravings have diminished, my allergies have disappeared and I used to be in the doctors once a month (with horrible flu-like symptoms), my whole family has also seen major benefits and loves it, my clients don’t go a day without it….so short answer, you’re going to want it. And to continue with it daily. ;)
On that note, here is one of my FAVE holiday recipes with my all time fave flavor: Cafe Latte Vegan! NOM
