Enerfood Smoothie Recipe:
Prep: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 1 serving
1 Cup water
1 scoop Enerfood Powder
Fruit of choice- Strawberries, banana, blueberries
1 scoop of ice
1-2 Tb Coconut Milk Powder for sweetness (optional)

To make it a little sweeter: Make the smoothie sweeter by replacing the 1 cup of water with 1 cup of apple juice or even ½ cup water and ½ cup apple juice.
To pack on the protein: Replace the 1 cup of water with 1 cup of milk or Coconut Milk Powder. Add 1 scoop of protein powder.
To make it thicker/ thinner: Use more ice to make it thicker and add more water to make it thinner. You can also add pieces of fresh fruit in the smoothie after it is blended for a thicker consistency.
To make it creamier: Try adding ¼ of an avocado to give your smoothie that creamy texture, plus the added benefits of the high amounts of monosaturated fats and fibers in avocado are a perfect addition to this guilt free smoothie.
Frozen or not frozen fruit: According to the Cleveland Clinic, “The sooner you eat produce after it’s harvested, the better its nutrient profile.” However, frozen fruit may sometimes contain higher amounts of vitamins and minerals as it was frozen at its peak ripeness. Overall, there is not one option better than the other, so it comes down to price, availability, and personal preference!
