I am all about a good smoothie, especially one that is packed with antioxidants and micro-nutrients. I like to eat, bite, crunch and feel food in my mouth; so basically I love to eat. I do eat a lot despite being pretty tiny. A good smoothie gives my body a rest and does not make my body “work”. I feel giving our body a rest is very important and there are many ways to do this. This paleo high antioxidant smoothie is the one I can stand behind for this purpose.
We are always working out, working and sitting at the job, driving, concerned about food, eating what is good, and splurging now and then, etc. Each and every one of those activities involves the use of our own body. How about letting the body have an “ahhhhhh” moment?! The one product I’ve found that is a superfood and an antioxidant combo is from Philosophie. I use her product (Sophie – AKA the owner of Philosophie) because of her commitment to quality and purity. She uses a hemp-based protein that is in her Cacao Magic and it is just perfect. I get no bind-up of too much protein in my tummy or too much cacao, etc. Really it is the right balance in each scoop:
- organic cacao powder
- organic cacao nibs
- organic reishi
- organic mesquite
- organic maca
- organic chia seeds
- organic hemp protein
- organic vanilla
This superfood and protein blend packs 10x the antioxidants of green tea, more magnesium than 3 cups of broccoli and more calcium than a glass of milk!Print
This paleo high antioxidant smoothie is one I can stand behind. My body loves this! You can add anything and everything to this recipe and the taste of the cacao magic will stand out and help you thrive. Add spinach, kale, avocado, berries, oils, fruits, etc. I hope you enjoy it!
