Berry Beet Ginger Smoothie:
Colorful? Yeah, you could say that. Blended with beets and berries, you’re ridin’ the train to flavor-ville. In addition, you can build up the fiber content by adding some chia and hemp seeds. Lest we forget, it’s also a Gluten-Free, Vegan option which only means it’s a totally smart option when it comes to weight loss.
1 medium banana
1 handful of baby spinach
1 medium beet, peeled
1/2 cup frozen or fresh berries
1″ piece of peeled fresh ginger
1/2 of an avocado
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp hemp hearts
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 1/4 cup water
Two steps? Sign me up! First of all, cut the beet in half, or in quarters depending on its size. Second, blend all the ingredients together until smooth.
Maple Kabocha Smoothie:
Hmm, soy and gluten free, plus it’s a vegan recipe. Sounds unsatisfying when it comes to taste, but that’s where you’re wrong. The Maple Kabocha Smoothie is mixed with maple syrup which packs a punch in the sweet and savory taste bud avenue.
3 large carrots
1/2 inch fresh ginger
1/4 kabocha squash, peeled, seeded and roasted
1/2 cup coconut water
1/4 cup raw cashews
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Juice the carrots and ginger. Add the carrot ginger juice to a high speed blender with the kabocha, coconut water, cashews, maple syrup, and cinnamon – to finish, blend to smooth. Simple? We’d say so!
Malted Chocolate Cauliflower Smoothie:
Granted, the name of this smoothie sounds incredibly weird but it’s insanely tasty. We should mention that the cacao powder and dates transform this creamy concoction into the perfect dessert option or basically, whenever you’ve got that chocolate craving.

Moreover the Maca powder has many essential minerals, increases energy, stamina and endurance, and also supports the immune system.
