Incorporating smoothies into my regimen for me meant ensuring daily that I got in the veggies, fruits and superfoods that I might not have consumed otherwise. For the last few years I’d made it a priority to make and enjoy one smoothie a day. Currently, since I’ve been on the plant based alkaline diet I’m making fewer smoothies. Not because they’re no longer a good idea, but because I’m consuming so many fruits and veggies in my meals throughout the day anyway. Smoothies are great. I believe that a regular smoothie regimen, especially when you are trying to find ways to incorporate superfoods into your diet, can contribute greatly to weight loss and a healthy lifestyle.

In the smoothies I make, usually on whim, I’ll add some superfoods in the form of powdered herbs or sea moss. Most days the concoction is spontaneous, other days it’s more intentional. The smoothie recipe that I share in this post was intentional and it was definitely more on the dessert side. I wanted something sweet and hearty.
3/4 medium Banana
5 Frozen Strawberries
1/2 cup Brazil Nut Milk
1 tbsp Sea Moss Gel
2 tbsp Walnuts
1tbsp Coconut Flakes
I wanted to make it pretty and have the yellow mango blend on the top and the pink/red strawberries on the bottom. This is how we achieved that:
- Blend the mango, half of the banana, & sea moss gel. The fruits are soft so not much liquid should be needed to help mix. If necessary add a bit of the milk.
- Blend the strawberries with the rest of the banana and the rest of the milk. The frozen strawberries need the liquid (milk) to blend nice and smooth.
- Pour the strawberry mix into your pretty jar, add the mango mix on top, sprinkle in your nuts and coconut and finito!!!
This was rich and yummy.
