ULTIMATE POWER HOUSE SMOOTHIE with ALL THE GOOD THINGS


Like the name implies, this baby has got it all. You will be glowing and possibly floating above the ground after drinking this. Transcend with super foods! The recipe includes everything from chlorella to cinnamon to spinach. If you don’t have time to eat 3 huge salads every day, you can stop sweating now because it’s all good, bro. This smoothie has got yo back. The best part is: it tastes freaking amazeballs. I used to think amazeballs was a weird term and that I’d never use it but I see it all the time in your guys’ comments and you’ve converted me to the balls of amaze ways. Thanks a lot. Note: the sarcasm. 



I am essentially addicted to blueberries and fortunately they happen to be one of the best brain foods in existence; they’re in here. The benefits of bananas are bodacious, and we’ve got two in this recipe. What else are we throwing in? Okay… lemme see here… spinach, hemp seeds, cacao, noni, blue green algae, maca, acai, cordyceps mushrooms, mesquite, camu camu, vanilla, ginger, Himalayan salt, cinnamon, spirulina, chlorella, E3 Live AFA, barley grass, wheat grass, alfalfa, nettle, kale, dandelion, kelp, bladderwrack (seriously who named that plant though), rockweed, sea lettuce, dulse, alaria WOW 4 REAL THAT WAS LITERALLY A LIST OF ALL THE GOOD THINGS YOU CAN EAT. THEY’RE ALL IN HERE! How is this possible? Well, because there are some super rad companies out there that genuinely care about sustainable wellness (for your body as well as the planet). 

Beaming was generous enough to send me their smoothie kit which includes all those incredibly powerful super foods. They also sent me Artisana Coconut Butter and I am. Flipping. Out. It’s basically the best coconut product out there and smells like coco bliss heaven (yes it`s an actual physical location… in my daydreams). Back to the subject at hand: among a bunch of bags of maca powder, cacao nibs, goji berries and hemp seeds; I also received a jar of Amazing Grass’ Raw Reserve Green Superfood which contains all the greens listed above, as well as a jar of Beaming’s Superfood Smoothie Blend, which contains all the other great stuff. Adding a tablespoon or two of each of these blends to your smoothie every day allows you to get all those magical foods into your body within minutes! I am happy! I am smiling! I am jumping up and down! Actually I was sitting on the floor, but I like to think of myself as an honest person so I got up and jumped around a little bit. 

We don`t all have time to eat four pounds of broccoli every day, and I dunno about you – but I haven`t a clue where to find organic cordyceps mushrooms or blue green algae… so these powder blends are ideal for us normal folk who have busy lives and don’t live in an underwater organic love garden (but damn that sounds cool, doesn`t it?). 

P.S. Look at the pretty gif I made for you! If you let it load properly, it looks real nice.
