Blueberry Kiss

Five days in and I have been feeling a bit lighter in body and mind. Sure, there are some benefits that come from just paying more attention to what goes my mouth. Call it “mindfulness” or just a better sense of self-awareness. Even so it is hard to describe except to say my mind feels less distracted and more stable.

Switching gears, let’s talk about yummy drinks!

I had this tonight. Here is the stuff that goes into a smoothie I call a “Blueberry Kiss”!

2 cups hemp milk, 1 cup blueberries (frozen), 2 tbs cacao and 1/2 tsp maca powder blended well.

Here are the main nutritional benefits in this mix:

Over 20 amino acids, including 8 essential amino acids, 20 free-form fatty acids (such as lauric, linolenic, palmitic acid, oleic , and steric acid), vitamins B-1, B-2, B-6, C and E, calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper, zinc, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, sulphur, sodium, iron and dietary fiber. 

Since it is so processed, I am not sure hemp milk is a super food but maca powder, blueberries and cacao definitely are. Plus, I could have one of these every day. It is that good!
