Join the Smoothment!
Smoothies made with organic superfoods are an ideal tool to reach a higher level of nutrition and diversity in your diet, whether they are enjoyed in place of a breakfast, lunch or snack. That's why Navitas Naturals has created the Smoothment - an interactive, multimedia program that features easy and delicious organic smoothie recipes and advice from superfood gurus. The Smoothment aims to inspire people to upgrade the nutrition of one meal or snack per day by adding an organic superfood smoothie into their daily routine.
Tropical Detox Smoothie
2 cups frozen mango
2 tablespoons Navitas Naturals Lucuma Powder
2 tsp Navitas Naturals Wheatgrass Powder
1 cup orange juice
½ cup almond milk
1-2 tablespoons lime juice
1 cup chia gel (learn how to make chia gel at NavitasNaturals.com/ChiaGel)
Cleanse programs can be time-consuming and costly, but smoothies can serve as an easy, gentle, everyday cleanse. Choose to make at least one cleansing smoothie a day in place of a traditional meal, and enjoy increased weight control, restored energy, improved skin, and bountiful health benefits. To make the most out of a "cleansing" smoothie, aim for ingredients that are high in fiber, low in sugar, and don't be afraid to sneak in some purifying greens. Drink plenty of water, too!
Cleansing Superfoods Include:
Wheatgrass: A potent natural source of chlorophyll (the green "blood" of plants), wheatgrass assists in increasing circulation, promotes the detoxification of impurities, neutralizes acids and toxins, and replenishes cells with essential minerals and vitamins.
Chia Seeds: In just one serving (2 tablespoons), chia provides almost a quarter of our recommended daily allowance of fiber. Needless to say, the more efficient our elimination process, the cleaner our bodies run!
Lucuma Powder: A flavorful fruit powder, lucuma provides the sweetness we crave in smoothies (and desserts), with a very low sugar content. Cutting back on sugars is a well-researched way to effectively cleanse the body, release excess weight, and promote healthy skin.
