My Super Energizing Mega Smoothie.


The vast majority of Americans line up at Starbucks to get their morning fix.

I get it—we all want more energy.

My husband can’t say a single word until he’s had his morning cup; my assistant cannot peel her eyes open without a Venti Chai.

I used to be a junkie too.

Not anymore—now I make an energizing smoothie to boost my energy levels rather than downing caffeine.

Here’s What You Need:

1 cup freshly chopped pineapple

1 cup freshly chopped watermelon

2 quarts coconut water

1 handful of baby spinach

1 handful of kale

1 cup of blueberries

1 green apple or 1 banana

4 drops of lime essential oil

2 drops of wild orange essential oil

pinch of Maca powder

1 tsp flax seeds

What To Do:

Place all the ingredients in a VitaMix or blender and blend until smooth.

Drink up!!!!

I use essential oils in all of my recipes because they have therapeutic, even medicinal qualities.

Check it out:

Lime essential oil targets respiratory, emotional and digestive issues such as: cleanse lymphatic system, detoxifier, digestive aid, bacterial and viral infections, memory enhancer.

Wild Orange essential oil targets emotions, digestion, skin and immunity. Wild Orange boost metabolism, tissue repair, bone health, cholesterol, and digestion.

What would you add to this smoothie to make it more to your liking? I would love to hear from you. Please leave your comments in the box below.

(If you get energized off this smoothie, share the rewards with friends. Post this on FB, Pinterest or Tweet it.)
