The Brain Smoothie

Feed your brain and your family this super-smoothie.

Feed your brain and your family this super-smoothie.

My 9 year-old son told me he thought he aced his PATs (Provincial Achievement Tests) this morning. I asked him if it was because of the brain smoothie I fed him before school or his own natural aptitude for learning. He replied, “The brain smoothie.”

I’m certain he was well-prepared for the tests, but a boosted smoothie can’t hurt. Here’s what he had before school:
2 cups nut milk or coconut milk
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
2 tbsp sprouted chia seed powder
1 tsp chaga mushroom powder
1 tsp maca root powder
2 tbsp raw organic coconut oil
1 tsp pure local honey
2 tbsp hemp hearts
1 tsp bee pollen
1 tsp vanilla powder
a heaping handful of walnuts or cashews 
Play with the amounts as you like (don’t overdo the maca), and eliminate what you don’t have on hand.
Great additions: banana, maple syrup, nut butters…
Blend together until smooth. Makes enough for both of us. A delicious, decadent super-smoothie to fuel his tests and his day.
Always consult a physician before beginning a new nutritional regimen.
