Let me introduce you to this easy vegan banana berry smoothie that will even surprise non-vegans:
Banana Berry Smoothie, layered jar with quinoa and topped with crunchy rawnola
Not that this breaky is 100% sugarfree it also gives you all the nutrients you need to get through the day. I love smoothies but sometimes I need something more that fills me up in the morning. So in this jar, I pimped a normal smoothie with puffed Quinoa and crunchy rawnola. Sometimes when I feel like, I add some superfoods to my smoothies, like Maca powder, Baobab or Spirulina. Read more about superfoods below and have a look at the recipe after you have take a look at the Smoothie when it fell….
For the smoothie you need:
2 bananas (ripe and frozen)
raspberries (frozen or fresh)
1 small splash of almond milk
1/4 tbsp cinnamon
stevia (I usually use two small tabs, but there is also liquid or powdered stevia available)
(any other sweetener works at well, and if you don’t have any don’t worry the bananas are already sweet like candy 🙂
Optional: Maca powder (the best maca powder is from Organicburst
People often ask me what superfoods I use and why I use them and whether it is necessary.
I think I first got in touch with superfoods when I heard about Maca powder. I also remember that I had no clue that it is different to Matcha powder. wuups…Well, during the last months I learned a lot more about superfoods and I like to show you what kinds of I currently use and like the most.
My favorite at the moment is Acai powder. This is due to the reason that I really enjoy the taste and second it gives me some of the nutrients I really need as a vegan 27 years old girl. According to the HealthysmoothieHQ, Acai berries contain a nearly complete protein profile. A complete protein is one that contains all of the amino acids, or building blocks of protein, that your body cannot manufacture on its own. Foods with a complete protein profile include meat, dairy, and soy. Acai has nearly all of the necessary amino acids and its protein profile is more complete than most fruits.
So thumbs up for Acai smoothies, bowls and Nicecreams!
Other superfoods I use, are as mentioned above Maca powder as well as Baobab powder. Their taste is really earthy and the Baobab has a sweet note which combines nicely with Carob powder in a nicecream.
Superfoods I use for shots or just in small amounts are Spirulina, Chlorella and Wheatgras. They have amazing health benefits but I think sometimes it is hard to combine them due to their let’s say rather unusual/not chocolaty flavor 😉
I think it is worth to include superfoods such as mentioned above in your diet. Of course this foods are expensive but it is something worth investing in. And you don’t need them daily! Just here and there, sneak them in your menu and feel the power coming from inside.
