The electrolyte green smoothie maintains hydration and is my daily lifeblood. What makes it so vital is the nutrient-rich chlorophyll in the kale and spinach. Besides being a natural detoxifier, chlorophyll is plant heme and has a similar molecular structure as our own blood, and when we consume it, it oxygenates our cells, tissue, and vital organs with essential vitamins and minerals.

Pumpkin Pie:

And yes, it really does taste like pumpkin pie. But don’t let its yummy dessert flavor fool you; it packs an enormous nutrient punch. Along with the antioxidant benefits of its Very Berry counterpart, the addition of ginger and turmeric introduces anti-inflammatory properties to help relieve the 48-hr afterburn and joint pain associated with a vigorous work-out.

Coco-Cacao ‘Almond Joy’

Decadent nutrition may sound like an oxymoron, but I managed to marry the two in this fabulously delicious smoothie. It mimics my all-time favorite Almond Joy/Mounds candy bars. What I love most, besides its yumminess, is the cacao chocolate. Organic cacao is considered nature’s wonder food. Its antioxidant levels out-pace blueberries 40-1 and wallops spinach 2-1 as the highest plant-based source of iron on the planet. In addition to its nutrient value, cacao naturally boosts energy as it elevates mood by stimulating serotonin levels in the brain.
