Energy Smoothie

   This smoothie is fantastic for promoting energy and is packed with nutrition. The base for this high protein, low calorie beverage is antioxidant rich blueberries and potassium rich bananas mixed with almond milk, which not only adds flavor, but also essential fatty acids and calcium. If you opt to use the High Performance Powder and Five Elements Powder which includes 44 potent Chinese herbs, chlorophyll and fiber you will be benefiting from over 50 Chinese herbs in there that are specifically meant to increase vital energy and longevity.

  2 servings
1½ cups almond milk
1 banana
½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries
½ cup plain coconut yogurt
2 tablespoons wildflower honey
2 tablespoons High Performance Powder
2 tablespoons Five Elements Powder
   Put all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Divide between two glasses and serve immediately.

   Of all fruits, blueberries have one of the highest levels of antioxidant activity, helping to reduce the risk of certain cancers and bringing anti aging benefits. Blueberries have neuroprotective properties that can delay the onset of age-related memory loss by shielding brain cells from damage by chemicals, plaque or trauma. They have also been shown to lower blood cholesterol and lipid levels. They are high in manganese and vitamin K and have a very low glycemic load, making them an ideal fruit for diabetics. All this and delicious, too!
