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.
