My Super Energizing Mega Smoothie

By Hayley Hobson, originally featured on Elephant Journal


The vast majority of American’s line up at Starbucks to get there morning fix.

I get it—we all want more energy.

My husband can’t say a single word until he’s had his morning cup; my assistant cannot peel her eyes open without a Venti Chai.

I used to be a junkie too.

Not anymore—now I make an energizing smoothie to boost my energy levels rather than downing caffeine.

Here’s What You Need:

1 cup freshly chopped pineapple

1 cup freshly chopped watermelon

2 quarts coconut water

1 handful of baby spinach

1 handful of kale

1 cup of blueberries

1 green apples or 1 bananas

4 drops of lime essential oil

2 drops of wild orange essential oil

pinch of Macca powder

tsp flax seeds

What To Do:

Place all the ingredients in a VitaMix or blender and blender until very smooth.

Drink up!!!!

I use essential oils in all of my recipes because they have therapeutic, even medicinal qualities.

Check it out:

Lime essential oil targets respiratory, emotional and digestive issues such as: cleanse lymphatic system, detoxifier, digestive aid, bacterial and viral infections, memory enhancer.

Wild Orange essential oil targets emotions, digestion, skin and immunity. Wild Orange boost metabolism, tissue repair, bone health, cholesterol, and digestion.

What To Do:

Place all the ingredients in a VitaMix or blender and blender until very smooth.

Drink up!!!!

I have just given you a fabulous recipe to energize your mornings. Ditch the coffee and get this smoothie.
