I feel so sorry for this smoothie. It’s so ugly. So, so ugly that I was sure it was going to taste gross. I grabbed a teaspoon and dipped it into the drink and had a little taste – then BOOM! Don’t judge a smoothie by its colour I say! Divine!
This smoothie is FULL of goodness! Some of the ingredients you may never heard of before, or do not have in your pantry but like all good smoothie recipes you can swap things around.
Just so you know, here is some health info about some of the ingredients in this powerful smoothie:
– Raw Organic Mesquite Powder: high protein, calcium, magnesium, lysine (amino acid)
– Maca Powder: high protein (20+ amino acids), EFAs, alkaloids (stimulates master glands)
– Chia Seeds: omega oils, Vitamin B2, antioxidants, Vitamin E (4x more than blueberries), high in fibre, complete protein (18 amino acids, 8 essential ones), calcium (5x more than milk), iron (3x more than spinach), magnesium (15x more than broccoli), potassium (2x more than bananas), folate
– Raw Cacao Powder: beta-carotene, amino acids, Omega-3 EFA’s, calcium, zinc, iron, copper, sulphur, potassium, magnesium
The Best Tasting Ugliest Smoothie
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 cup filtered water
- 1 handful baby spinach
- 1/2 tsp maca powder
- 1/2 tsp mesquite powder
- 1 Tbs chia seeds
- 1-2 Tbs raw cacao powder

Put it all in the blender/Thermomix and blend until it looks like my photo…or until it looks gross 😉 Enjoy!
