July 6th, 2015 | 1 comment

Hey there! 

July is my favorite month…

  1. It’s the summer and that’s my favorite season
  2. I absolutely love to celebrate America + the 4th of July
  3. My birthday is in July… helloooo July 7! 
  4. The sun shines, almost everyday 
  5. The days are longer! 
  6. I really could go on and on and on.

As I mentioned above, I love these warm summer days. I find that I crave lighter cooler foods in the summer like hydrating fruits and morning smoothies. You all know by now that I am a huge fan of smoothies in the morning. I love that you can create different combinations and pack them up with nutrition for a boost of energy first thing in the morning.

The smoothie recipe that I have for you today is so good you are going to forget it’s healthy. This one is packed with flavor, protein, nutrition and has a delicious balance of fruitiness and creaminess. I make this one at least once a week, it has become for of my favorites. I’ll even make this for dessert when I am craving something sweet.

Raspberries and Acai give this recipe a boost of vitamins and antioxidants that help ward off illness-causing free radicals. Chia seeds give you a boost of vitamin C, magnesium, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Maca powder is a root-derived powder that help balance the bodies delicate endocrine system to help cope with stress (source) and help boost energy, naturally, which is why I love it. 

I hope you enjoy!

In a high speed blender, like a Vitamix or Blentec, add all ingredients in the order they are listed. Blend for 60-90 seconds on a medium/high setting using a tamper to make sure all ingredients evenly blend. For thicker smoothie, add a few ice cubes. For a thinner smoothie, add more almond milk 1/3 cup at a time. Enjoy!
