Navitas Naturals Raw Blueberry Hemp Superfood Smoothie

Method Comments

Congratulations to Stefanie Adler from New York who won the 2nd Navitas Naturals $200 Gift Card and SUPERFOOD SMOOTHIES book in the June giveaway. There are two more up for grabs, so don't miss out.

I continue my love affair with Navitas Naturals by sharing their deliciously simple blueberry hemp superfood protein smoothie, proving that you can include superfoods into your smoothies in a very easy, accessible, affordable way. This smoothie takes seconds to throw together and is absolutely scrumptious. If you can't find almond milk yoghurt feel free to use any yoghurt you like. It will alter the personality of the smoothie, but will still be delicious. 

This smoothie was featured as part of Navitas 60 Second Smoothies videos. You can watch Julie Morris, the face of Navitas whip up this smoothie here. As Julie says in the video, blueberries are packed with antioxidants. Just 3 tablespoons of hemp protein powder contains 16 grams of protein in a form that is easily digestible with vital plant based minerals. The flaxseed powder gives this smoothie a boost of healthy fats and fibre. The yohurt adds a delicious tang, as well as some extra protein, and makes this smoothie super creamy and decadent without being heavy. I LOVE this blend.

Julie has formulated all kinds of delicious superfood recipes for Navitas Naturals. You can find the complete arsenal of recipes in their recipe center. But, if you would like to learn from Julie in person at the Essentials of Superfoods by Navitas Naturals course, in collaboration with Matthew Kenney Online

The curriculum of this course is defined by its 4 weekly outlines, each course session progressing in such a way where the material learned is then applied to additional instruction. Each session features cutting-edge video lectures and demonstrations by Superfood expert and Navitas spokesperson Julie Morris with appearances by Matthew Kenney, as well as other unique forms of instruction. Both cooked and raw plant-based recipes utilizing Superfoods are taught and prepared by students throughout the course.  Each week includes both written and practical testing. You can find out more here

I would LOVE to take this course...in fact I just might! But, in the mean time, I will just enjoy all of the wonderful Navitas Naturals recipes.

Tip: Freeze leftover milk in ice cube trays for use later

Don't waste that leftover milk. Freeze it in ice cube trays, and them empty into containers or zip-lock freezer bags for use later in smoothies, soups, and other recipes. 

So over-the-moon-happy with this yumful smoothie! Definitely sharing it with everyone!  :)

I have been wondering how to incorporate blueberries into a smoothie. They seem so plain. Maybe I’m going about it the wrong way.  I’ll try this out.

By the way does this hemp protein powder include the shells of the hemp seeds as well as the seed?  The reason I’m asking is that I purchased hemp protein powder from a certain company and it has a kind of bitter taste. I’ve been apprehensive to try it again. I’m very happy with actual raw hemp seeds though.  thanks for any feedback.

Oh, blueberries are FABULOUS in smoothies. Play around and you will find some blends that you love. With regards to the hemp seeds, they are shelled, and so is the hemp protein powder. Different proprietary blends taste different depending on the additives and sweeteners. But hemp powder can be bitter. Add some sweet fruits and banana when you start using it, and your taste buds and body change and get used to it.

Hello! Love your website! 
Is there a particular reason why you use flaxseed powder over the seeds in your smoothies?  I’m just curious.  Thanks!!

Thanks Trisha, This is a recipe from Navitas Naturals and they use flax powder. You can use ground flax seeds in this recipe too. Flax seeds need to be ground in order to be digested and fully utilized by the body. If you have a high-speed blender you don’t need to grind them before adding to a smoothie.
