5 Easy Superfood Smoothies | Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Smoothies are my favorite way to eat nutrient-rich
foods like fruits and greens. They’re quick, easy, and only require a
good blender. Today I’m sharing 5 easy superfood smoothies
that make for a great breakfast, especially when you’re in a pinch. First, I’d like to thank Thrive Market for
partnering with me on this video. You can find most of the ingredients from
this video on Thrive Market. Thrive Market also sells the Nutribullet blender
for 30% off, which is such a great deal. My Nutribullet is hands down my favorite and
most used kitchen appliance. If you don’t know already, Thrive Market
is an online store that sells the top healthy and organic products at wholesale
prices shipped straight to your door. All their products are 25-50% below retail

smoothie: The Red This one’s on the sweeter side, so it’s
really easy to enjoy. I’d say this is a beginner smoothie. Here are the ingredients you’ll need: A banana – You can add another if you like
your smoothies creamier and sweeter. Strawberries, of course. And yes, you can blend them with the stems
in. I was so stoked when I found that out on Google. Goji berries, which are an amazing superfood. Go easy on this if you’re new to the taste,
though. Almond milk – Or, technically, any other liquid
of your choice. And lastly: ice. This one’s optional, but add it if you like
your smoothies cold. I usually don’t add ice, but I know most
people like it. Next, add all the ingredients into your blender
cup. Side note: I’m not including exact measurements
for the recipes because I personally never measure when making
smoothies. I just eyeball everything and learn what I like over time. I want to be here to share the ingredients but give you freedom to explore what ratios
you like best, since we all have different tastes anyway. Feel free to experiment and adjust these recipes
to your liking. Alright, it’s time to blend! Next up: we have the Green smoothie. This one’s packed with nutrients but the green taste can take some time to
get used to if you’re still a beginner to these types
of smoothies. So here are the ingredients that you’ll
need. First: Greens of your choice – I have spinach,
kale, and chard. You can add more greens for more nutrients,
or less greens if you’re not used to the taste yet. Next: wheat grass powder. This is optional, but sometimes, if I don’t have fresh greens, I’ll use
this instead. A banana, or maybe two if you want. Some chia seed and flaxseed. And, optional: Another fruit of your choice. I had papaya in the fridge, so why not? And lastly: coconut water. It’s like water, but better. Add everything into the blender. Here, I kind of messed up because I put bananas first but I actually
recommend adding the greens first so you can smush them down and pack some more
in there, but it’s okay. Then blend! Following the green smoothie, we have the
Purple smoothie. This one also tastes pretty good because it’s
so simple. It reminds me of blueberry yogurt. Here are the ingredients for this smoothie.. We have: A banana. We have our main star of the show: blueberries,
which are my favorite berries at the moment. Chia seed and hemp seed, which is another
superfood I’ve recently just started to explore. And almond milk, or coconut milk could work
too! Add all the ingredients into the blender cup. I felt like adding more blueberries. And then blend until you’re happy with the
consistency! Alright, next up we have the most adventurous
smoothie of the bunch, the yellow smoothie. This one’s adventurous because it includes
a spice called turmeric, a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory
usually used in Indian curries. It has a more earthy taste that you might
not be used to, but surprisingly this was my favorite smoothie
of the bunch. Here are the ingredients we’ll be using: A banana, as usual. Frozen mangoes, or fresh – whatever you’ve
got. Turmeric, our star spice. Black pepper – just a dash! Yes, it sounds weird, but black pepper is
proven to dramatically increase the absorption and
effects of Turmeric, that’s why you’ll always see them used
together in recipes. And almond milk, or any other type of milk
will work. First, add the almond milk into your cup. Then add a teaspoon or less of turmeric. Then add a dash of black pepper. A small amount is already enough to reap the
benefits. Then add all the fruit, and then blend! Look at that color! I love it so much. Alright, this last smoothie is the quickest
and easiest of them all. I call this the “Lazy Superfood Shake”
because it can’t get easier than this, seriously. Here are the three ingredients needed: First, bananas, and I’d definitely add two
for this one. This Green Superfood powder mix, which is
kind of like a multivitamin, antioxidant supplement made from superfood
ingredients. And coconut water. Add the bananas into the cup, then add a scoop
of the superfood mix. And then the coconut water. Blend, and you’re done! I feel like this you could literally make
this in one minute. Maybe two minutes, if you take your time peeling
bananas. Anyway, like with all other smoothies, you
can add more ingredients if you’d like. In general, take some time to explore what
fruits and greens you like best. And remember to add superfood boosts – Like goji berries, chia seeds, hemp seeds,
or flaxseed, because why not? You’re getting so many more nutrients, and
you don’t even notice they’re there. That’s why I love smoothies so much. Thanks again to Thrive Market for sponsoring

  1. Thanks for these recipes! But I can not prepare any of them, because they all include a banana, I'm allergic to it. How can I replace this basic ingredient to prepare a good smoothie?

  2. I am not a fan of milk in my smoothies and i haven't tried adding hemp seeds yet…. The tiny shells in the mix make me nervous since i know it doesn't always blend well. I think. At least on my salad it tasted like sand. But I love the ideas, Aileen!!!! And thank you for the links!💕
    Also goji berries go great with cherries and they are so good for the skin!🍒

  3. Hey! Frm India 🙂 i was so down n low… I didnt know wat to do with myself and life…. Bt aftr watching ur videos.. I could literally feel wat life is actually abt… Thank u so mch… U inspire me a lot… Keep making ispirational n lifestyle videos… Thnk u from bottom of my heart.. 😃

  4. Smoothie queen😅😃 that's a nice title
    Never tried homemade smoothies before
    I'll make sure to start trying them out
    Especially the purple one😋
    The video is very educative
    Like the video

  5. Love ur videos ❤️
    Everyone wish me luck for my results AND GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE ELSE!

  6. At my work we make a smoothie similar to the Purple smoothie. we use cinnamon, raw cacao and sunflower seeds, (along with hemp)

  7. Ugh, it's so calming to watch your videos. I miss your organization videos! Please make some!!! Lots of love 💕💕

  8. Thanks for the vid!
    Actually for those who have a more delicate stomach and feel like they are prone to acidity or cramps after downing a smoothie, try 'eating your smoothie' as your saliva will help dilute and process the smoothie before it drops to your stomach (much more scientific than that, can't find the words :p). I personally like to either make smoothie bowls and really take my time with each mouthful or if I'm in a rush I'll just pour the smoothie over some cereal/granola and chew well. Hope this helps!

  9. I love Thrive market! I ve been member for already 2 years and is the best! I just have to get the fresh in the farmer's market and I am all set with the groceries 💓 Give it a try! And also they send you free goodies once in a while with your order if is above 59usd. They have a lot of vegan, crueltyfree and fair trade products that is difficult to find somewhere else with that kind of discount. I am a fan! 😍🐇🌱 A big hug @Lavendaire

  10. I read in the newspaper a couple of weeks ago that superfoods don't exist. They aren't bad for you but they also aren't 'super'. That first smoothie with the strawberries does look tasty!

  11. im looking for healthy snacks during the school year cuz im always so busy and end up grabbing unhealthy snacks. can u make a vid on easy fast meals/snacks? u would save my life!

  12. All your recipes sound delicious! I will definitely try some of them! the one with mango and indian spices is the one I am more intrigued.

  13. This was very helpful since breakfast is so hard for me always. In the mornings I'm ALWAYS rushing and normally i go without or with something unhealthy. I never really liked smoothies that I've tried before but these look so delicious! thank you x

  14. I always use frozen bananas for my smoothies, you get the cold effect of ice without watering the smoothie down. This also cuts that frothy effect, which I personally don't like. Basically when I notice my bananas are getting a little ripe and I have too many left to eat before they go bad, I just pop them in the freezer. Love your channel! <3

  15. I love it! This is a well executed sponsored video! Nice one. And great recipes too, so easy to recreate! Thanks Aileen

  16. i just started seeing ur videos fewdays back and i m already ur fan i almost watched all of ur vedios thanks for ur vedios it really helped me in organization of my whole life thank you once again u like india dont u well i m an indian so maybe i noticed it any ways thanks 😊

  17. Can't wait to try some of these! Btw, I'm such a fan of how you film/edit. I love the pastel/dreamy undertones that come through in your videos. Is there a specific way you edit/or filter the videos? Or is it just your background and lighting? Thank you!!! Xoxo

  18. Hi i was wondering if you can give any advice on actually doing. You see, i love learning but I tend to see it as 'work' when I'm consciously studying the material. Like when I'm trying to learn Chinese I find that I'm stressed out after learning it but there at times when i absolutely love it. I'm really confused >< I'm not sure what I should do.

  19. Love your ideas! I wanted you to know that your videos have inspired me to do major changes in my life and to move in new directions for the better. It has been the energy spark i have been needing for too long. You truly can make a difference in people life. Thanks for your inspiration.

  20. We call them "blasts" instead of smoothies, lol. Blast of nutrients ~ love the Nutribullet. I can't find an affordable Nurtibullet style blender in Korea. 🙁

  21. These smoothies use too much fruit. The real purpose of smoothies is to get more greens in your diet. Fruits should just be used to sweeten things up a bit.

  22. Thank you for these great smoothie tips!! When I go to a smoothie shop I say I want a "crunchy" then tell them that I don't like the ice completely blended in. I sometimes get strange looks from the employee but they make them just right. 🙂

  23. Do you have any recommendations for substitutes for banana? I really dislike bananas, but I'd like to know how to create smoothies without them.

  24. If you like your smoothies cold, you can also freeze your bananas and then you also don't have to worry about them going bad either. Just peel and put them in a bag in the freezer and reuse the bag.

    An afforable way to drinking smoothies everyday and in abundance are frozen fruits and vegetables. A big bad of mixed fruit goes for about $2-3. Will save you and reduce less waste, unless your market has unpackaged fresh produce. Then they are cold and ready for smoothies and you can use the bag for freezing bananas once you run out.

  25. Would you say this powder has the same nutrients as using the actual fruit I always buy fruit and it always goes bad to before I use it so this would be super convenient also would these shakes be sufficient as a meal replacement? By the way I just found your channel , watched like 10 videos already and really enjoying your content

  26. I tried them ALL! and they are super refreshing. But I'm just like habituated to the lazy one Lamo. Thanks Lavendaire♡

  27. I love Recipe 3: Purple Smoothie! I add in the Ultimate Elixir and cacao powder to this recipe to get more superfoods and greens into my diet first thing in the morning!


  28. Turmeric needs to be eaten with a pink of black pepper AND a fat source to be absorbed right into your bloodstream! That's how you get all the benefits. An easy way to do this is to add coconut milk to the smoothie 🙂

  29. I love your chanel soooo much because sometimes my mental health is kinda bad and when i'm watching your videos the lights, the fabulous pastel colors, and your shooting voice really get to me and make me feel a bit better. Keep up the good work. <3

  30. "Omg….what a find. 💝 You must try the breakfast shake, but the chocolate is good too 😉 "

    That was my message a while ago…now the Founder is making waves in the health industry ❤ love it when I am onto a good thing 💪


  31. Really love your videos! Thank you so much, after I watch your video it change my habits, my mindset. I like your question "I'm imperfect, I'm beautiful ".

  32. Wouldn’t it be easier if she used the larger attachment to the nutribullet because she really has to cram everything into the smalller one
