About 6 months ago my husband was feeling out of shape and a bit lethargic in the mornings so he decided to start his days off with a super-charged breakfast to help him trim down, get healthy and have more energy. While he would previously have a delicious bowl of oatmeal or whole grain hot cereal for breakfast, he was finding that he wasn’t able to eat the amount of fruit, vegetables and other nutritious foods he wanted to during the day while he was at work.

By waking up daily to a glass full of the massively nutritious foods in this Crazy Healthy Smoothie, he walks out of the house every morning with a bang and says he feels amazing throughout the day. This recipe is his, and when I first saw him making it I thought he had went a bit overboard, as he packs a lot of food into one glass. He tosses a banana, a whole beet, a carrot, fresh and frozen berries (although any fresh or frozen fruit will do), persimmon, kale, bee pollen, walnuts, hemp hearts, almond milk, dates and flaxseeds into the Vitamix (essential for grinding everything up nice and smooth), and then divides it into glasses for our whole family to enjoy so we can all get a boost of yumminess alongside whatever I am making like Cottage Cheese Pancakes, parfaits or Happy Eggs (it’s all about balance after all!)

Whether you’re trying to make big changes and get in shape or just trying to get your family to eat more wholesome foods, this Crazy Healthy Smoothie is a crazy good winner.

  1. I’m wondering if anyone has tried this out with a ninja? I don’t have a vitamix and am wondering how the raw foods would do in a ninja- thoughts?

  2. Smoothie is my most favorite meal of the day. And to have the best meal, I’m using the best blender to blend all of my favorite fruits and veggies in one delicious drink. My personal favorite is the Ninja Mega Kitchen System. It is the top of the line, fully loaded blender with many attachments to make cooking and blending easy. What’s more is that it is super easy to clean up, has a sturdy construction, sharp blades and to top it all, very safe to use! It’s definitely worth the price. Love it.

  3. This is delicious! Both my kids and I love it, and the color is so vibrant from the beet and frozen berries I added. My kids are sporting smoothie mustaches and it makes me happy to know they’re getting so many nutrients!
