Green goddess nutrient-packed smoothie

This smoothie is great for balancing sugar cravings


This smoothie is great for balancing sugar cravings, uplifting the mood, clearing the head, boosting metabolism and strengthening immunity. SuperLife Superfood Smoothie Mix is a combination of eight raw superfoods that gives you an energy boost for the entire day: hemp, which is rich in protein and omega-3s; maca, which helps energy, focus and memory, and is an aphrodisiac; lucuma, to balance sugar levels for lasting energy; cacao - high in magnesium, and aids energy and mood; spirulina - an anti-inflammatory that strengthens the joints; chlorella - which strengthens the immune system, and helps remove toxins; kelp - which is high in iodine, and balances thyroid; and barley grass, which is high in chlorophyll, alkalises the body and helps with weight loss.

If you cannot find SuperLife Superfood Smoothie Mix then substitute it with maca powder, which is available from most health food shops.
