My love and I have a superfood smoothie for breakfast every day, and enjoy it so much there’s no desire to partake of other raw breakfast options. This smoothie serves as the foundation of our health and raw success. It packs such a nutritional punch that one could eat less than optimally the remainder of the day, yet rest assured that an enormous variety vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, etc. have been consumed.
This recipe is my own twist on a hybrid of Matt Amsden’s recipe in RAWvolution and David Wolfe’s video. I’ve added the E3Live, green powder, chia seeds, banana and lecithin for added nutrition and creaminess, while omitting the coconut water/meat to keep cost and effort to a minimum.
