When I first moved out here, I worked at a super food, juice, and smoothie bar in Carlsbad; it was an awesome experience. Working there taught me some totally natural ways to nourish your body and heal it at the same time. I had never known about the magical powers that Goji berries possess or that Turmeric is basically a fix-all when it comes to cramps and headaches. I really gained a new appreciation for the vegan, holistic, organic lifestyle. It really isn’t all that bad, it’s pretty hippy but its not terrible (I wish Arkansas wasn’t so far behind on this stuff). I modified one of the recipes at the bar and pro0duced the best smoothie ever! I never came up with a name for this other than Dank Drank, its amazing and it kind of tastes like a starburst candy.
- 8 oz Alkaline water
- Coconut Butter
- 3 drops of Oregano Oil ( this adds a pinch of heat to the aftertaste)
- 1 whole Orange
- 4 tbs of Goji Berries ( you don’t have to add as much as I do, I just REALLY like Gojis)
- 1 cup frozen Pineapple
- 1 cup of frozen Rasberries
- 1 cup of frozen Strawberries
- Chia Seeds or Granola sprinkled on top
Now sometimes I would add in a scoop of vanilla Hemp Protein ( Kief is a great add in too!) , Mangoes, Watermelon, and Blackberries. This smoothie will come out hot pink it’s a cheerful, bright, super healthy smoothie that I encourage you to try! When making your smoothie, or any food for that matter, try to think of only positive things, whatever you feel and think gets put into your food, it can actually affect the food on a molecular level. (you know, the things you learn in Cali!) So why ruin this superfood smoothie with bad thoughts and vibes! Stay Positive! This smoothie perfect for both the AM and PM, although if I drink it in the morning I pair it with a bowl of J-1. Its a super sativa, J-1 gets me pumped for the day and the smoothie cures the munchies, its a win win!
Also! If you haven’t heard of Oregano Oil you MUST look it up, it has soo many uses and does amazing things to a sick body. My daily routine: putting 3-5 drops into a glass bottle of alkaline water and drinking it through out the day. I swear it prevents me from getting sick, I love it!
