David’s Superfood Smoothie

by Marissa on March 31, 2012

It all started rather innocently.

I had been slipping greens into what had previously been David’s all-fruit blueberry smoothie. He didn’t seem to care, or even notice for that matter. As long as they still looked blue, I was in the clear.

Then I went to Long Beach and saw David Wolfe make a superfood smoothie.

What can I say, I got inspired. David’s favorite morning smoothie was about to get superfood-ified. I knew this would alter the taste somewhat so I decided I would run the idea by him before I got carried away.

Me: “What do you think about me adding some superfoods to your smoothie in the morning? They have lots of protein and will give you even more energy.” 

David: “Ok”

Easier than expected. The green light meant I was free to experiment. I had been making a few for myself and finally felt like I had a concoction that was suitable to share. too good not to share.

Superfood Smoothie

water from 1 young Thai coconut (if fresh coconut water isn’t available you can use packaged – I like Harmless Harvest or Zico)

handful of greens (whatever you have – kale, collards, spinach, etc).

1 c frozen blueberries

4-5 pineapple chunks

1/2 banana

1 Tbsp chlorella

1/2 tsp maca powder

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 c ice

(Note: All measurements are estimates)

Now, after I send David off to work, smoothie in hand, I get texts like this:

If you love someone, make them this smoothie!

I would imagine that if an avocado were to incarnate it would probably look like this. David “Avocado” Wolfe is to IIN students and graduates what Justin Bieber is to teenage girls. Totally crush-worthy. And for good reason. His spirit and enthusiasm about raw superfoods is enough to make you want to forage your own. […]
