Ey, babes, guess what time it is. It's Smoothie Time (AKA the best time)! This morning I got busy in the kitchen whipping up two different super nutrient-dense drinks for ya'll to slurp up with a smile. The special ingredients in these recipes are Organic Burst super foods! Within these colourful liquid concoctions are amazing concentrated forms of the healing and energy-giving plants: wheatgrass, acai berries, maca root and baobab fruit. Woo! Let's party cuz we can! Ain't no better way to start the day then with a giant glass of raw vegan fruity goodness in the most digestible format. Your body will be doing the happy dance.  Mine definitely is right now! Hence all the exclamation points!

Seriously though: if you're on the prowl for some of the highest quality super food powders on earth then I highly recommend you check out Organic Burst. I had been seeing other health food bloggers excitedly trying out their products and was getting a liiittle jealous when the company finally messaged me and asked if I wanted to do a review. UM YES. I received their goodies a few days ago and have been using them in my smoothies ever since. They keep me clear-headed and are probably warding off the depressed mood I usually get when the summer ends and turns into rain rain rain. You don't have to restrict using them to just in smoothies either. I love adding mine to banana ice cream, raw chocolate, and other wholesome sweet treats. Actually I bet some of them would even be yummy added to savoury sauces! Hmm... I gotta try that out.

The smoothies I am sharing today are your just your basic awesome outta-this-world tastylicious rainbow dranks. No biggie. I combined the two recipes in the same glass 'cause it makes it even prettier and you also get this groovy flavour combo going on that takes it all to the the next level. Without further ado - i.e. me rambling in an enthusiastic frenzy brought on by wheatgrass powder - LET'S DRINK!


Note: I absolutely love using super food powders in my recipes and honestly do think they can help people improve their health in substantial ways. At the same time I understand they may not be in everyone's budget. I think of them as supplementation and not the key to health and wellness, so don't worry if you can't afford them. Just eat lots of whole foods instead!


Berry smoothie:
1 cup frozen berries
3 bananas
1-2 cups water or non-dairy milk
1 tablespoon maca powder
1 tablespoon baobab powder

Green smoothie:
1 cup frozen pineapple
3 bananas
1-2 cups water or non-dairy milk
1 tablespoon wheatgrass powder
1 capsule acai berry powder (just open the capsule and drop in the powder)
1 orange

To make the smoothies: simply blend all the ingredients in each list together and enjoy! Drink them separately or mix together in your glasses for some vibrant colour contrasts!

what a fun way to blend the two smoothies! I love super foods and use all kinds of powders a lot. My favorite are chia seeds (not really a powder I know, but still a super food) and then lingonberry powder and rose hip powder. my macs is in a cupboard but I'm really keen on starting using it again! thank you for the inspiration!!

These are absolutely gorgeous!! And I agree with you on the supplementations. Yes, they are out of reach for many because they're so expensive, but starting with just whole foods and maybe gradually working one in here and there is a great option!

I think you really live up to your slogan with this one...because those are some sexy smoothies. Colorful and delicious-sounding and so nutritious.

Those pictures are stunning. My eyes lit up and got big, and I was like 'Ouu, a chair!' ~ I got pretty happy:)
And I love the duo-color smoothies :)

Really pretty, and tasty too I bet! Can't really afford much in the way of powders but growing wheatgrass on the kitchen windowsill. Happy Friday :)

Luckily in my food storage i have amla berry, acai berry, lucuma, mesquite and tigernuts powders. today, i can buy each of them at a reasonable price since more and more people are buying them.

It make me happy to promote superfoods and gradually traditional cultures such as wheat will disappear... it's a matter of education.

Those are quite tasty looking smoothies! Doesn't seem like there's really anything special about this specific brand though. There are several brands who make organic acai powder, wheatgrass powder, etc. I prefer something I don't have to take out of a capsule anyway.

I wish companies would send me free vegan stuff.

These smoothies look heaven! I am craving one! What about an exchange? One smoothie for one of my tacos! :)) Rino https://www.facebook.com/vegandare/photos/a.617867518258410.1073741828.597628283615667/813668548678305/?type=1&theater
