Vegan Healthy Superfood Smoothie
Now, before thinking that this sounds too healthy to be tasty, look at the ingredients. You won’t be sipping anything a vibrant shade of green (though I have some recipes for green smoothies that would knock your socks off) and it won’t be the “healthy” sort of drink that means nutrition in exchange for flavor. No, this Vegan Healthy Superfood Smoothie will become one of the breakfast smoothies that changes your mind about anything described as vegan, healthy and packed with superfoods.
Because you are going to use a frozen banana to make this, it is going to have the consistency and texture of a milkshake more than a smoothie. The addition of almond milk is going to ensure a nice, silky finish and that dollop of almond butter is going to pack a good amount of flavor as well as a small amount of fat. This is going to only enhance that sense of sipping a milkshake at breakfast!
One of the major superfoods in this “milkshake” is flaxeeds. High in fiber and omega-3 essential fatty acids, flaxeeds are a fantastic dietary supplement, and you can comfortably consume up to four tablespoons per day. The goji berries, hemp seeds and cacao are the remaining superfoods and stars of the show as they are sprinkled over the top and add color and flavor, making this one of the more attractive as well as health breakfast smoothies.
