Brother Echo’s Apple Pie Superfood Smoothie
As many of you know smoothies are a big part of a raw vegan diet, in fact you don’t have to be raw vegan to enjoy the amazing benefits of a smoothie. What is so nice about making smoothies is they are relatively easy to make, fast, easy cleanup and fun to experiment with.
If you are interested in diving into the world of smoothie making then you’ll need a high speed blender. Currently there are two brands of high speed blender that Brother Echo recommends.
You can either go with a VitaMix or a Blentec blender. Both of these blenders are sturdy, super powerful and come with great warranties. If I had to choose one blender in particular it would be the VitaMix. In my experience they are more reliable, blends better and comes with better accessories right out of the box.
Outside of the blender, now all you need is a little self inspiration and a trip to the local health food store (Whole Foods) or farmers market.
There are plenty of recipes online, videos on youtube and more than likely you’ve got friends on FaceBook that can chime in with recipes and advice. If you don’t already have friends on FaceBook then you can friend Brother Echo HERE!
Brother Echo’s Apple Pie Superfood Smoothie Recipe
- 1 banana
- 1 apple
- 5 pitted dates
- 1/2 cup hemp seeds
- 1 tablespoon maca
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons ELF protein
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 small piece ginger
- 1 cup filtered water
- 1 cup ice
The above recipe is an absolute home run when it comes to health benefits. If you like you can add just a 1 or 2 dates to lower the sugar content but if you like sweet stick to the recipe.
The protein content of this smoothie is through the roof, so if you’re an athletic person looking for that awesome post workout muscle building smoothie… look no further! It’s also a good idea to spike your sugar immediately after a workout (to give your cells the fuel/energy they need) as well as ramp up the protein, this smoothie has it all.
The protein content comes in three awesome forms, hemp seeds, chia seeds and the Essential Living Foods “High Protein Acai and Goji Superfood Smoothie Mix“. The ingredients for the ELF protien are as follows: Organic Hemp Seed Powder, Organic Brazil Nut Powder, Organic Mesquite, Organic Coconut Sugar, Organic Lucuma, Organic Goji Berry Extract, Organic Acai, Organic Vanilla.
The ELF protein mix alone has everything you need but when you add in all the other ingredients you make this a truly hardcore protein smoothie that taste just like apple pie!
