Berry Synergy Smoothie
Make this smoothie a meal with complete nutrition.
⅓ cup Navitas Naturals Cashew Whole Nuts
2 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Hemp Protein Powder
1 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Chia Seeds
1 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Cacao Raw Nibs
1 Cup Ice
2 Cups frozen Blueberries
5–6 large Medjool Dates (pits removed)
1 Cup Kale (center stem removed, packed)
2 Cups Water
Place ice and frozen berries in the blender first followed by cashews and dates. Add remaining powders, seeds, cacao nibs, greens and water. Blend until smooth.
Liquids will always make you feel instantly fuller —drink a glass of water when you think you're 'starving' and see if you weren't actually just a bit dehydrated. To make sure your smoothie meal is well balanced, include: a healthy amount of protein, fiber and fat (hemp or chia seeds will give you all three in one tiny, delicious seed); leafy green veggies (kale is so delicious in a smoothie); and micronutrient rich foods loaded with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants like fresh berries or raw cacao nibs.
