10+ Superfood Smoothies

If you’re someone that doesn’t get enough fruits and veggies in your daily meals, smoothies are the PERFECT solution. You can pack so much health into a mason jar, it should really come with warning labels. Especially when you up your smoothie game and start adding in superfood powders.

Superfoods are extremely nutrient dense foods that house a plethora of health benefits. Typically you only need a small amount tossed into smoothies (around 1 tsp – 1 tbsp), making them great add-ins to an already healthy meal.

While most health food stores/Co-ops offer a variety of superfood powders, you can find superfood powders in some mainstream stores and shops as well, such as Trader Joe’s, Costco, and even online.

The list of superfoods is ever growing, from turmeric to camu camu, and it seems like new foods are being introduced all the time. Don’t worry about those exotic powders like Ashwagandha, I’ve put together a list of more common superfoods that are easy to get a hold of as well as some recipe inspirations for whatever your health focus is.

So grab your blender and enjoy!
