3 Energizing Smoothie Recipes for Summer

Soon, spring will turn into summer, which means longer days and more parties, BBQs, and beach outings to enjoy! And although most people experience higher energy levels in the summer than in the colder seasons (thanks to our good friend Vitamin D), the endless activities in addition to the long workweek can be exhausting. To keep you energized enough to enjoy all of the summer activities coming up, we’ve collected three of our favorite energizing smoothies for summer!

1. Antioxidant Rich Smoothie

Energy booster: flax seed powder

Flax seed powder is comprised of 20% Omega-3 fatty acids, 20 times more than that found in fish oil, and more than any other plant food known. Research has shown that people who consume more Omega-3’s are more likely to have stable energy levels and a strong immune system. A daily dose of flax seed powder can help you feel more energized on a consistent basis.

Blend together and enjoy:

  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • ½ avocado, pitted, peeled
  • 4 dates, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons Organic Flax Seed Powder
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 4 cups romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries

2. Chocolate Almond Berry Butter Smoothie

Energy booster: mung bean sprout powder

Even though it doesn’t appear in the name, mung bean sprout powder is the true star of this smoothie. Not only a great source of protein, but also a high-energy superfood, mung bean sprout powder is often added to energy bars, and it makes a great addition to your pre-workout smoothie.

3. Superfood Energizer Smoothie

Maca is an adaptogen that helps the body resist the effects of disease and physical and emotional stress. This helps restore our energy to its optimal levels. Plus, goji berries and wheatgrass powder have been said to improve energy and stamina, and are often added to energy bars.
