Detox and Energy Boost Rituals: Vegan chocolate coconut smoothie

Are you looking for detox, energy boost ritual ideas? Why not try a vegan smoothie diet: smoothies are delicious, healthy, and can help us lose weight. But how to prepare this “liquid pie” in order to enjoy the full benefits of a nutritious, natural drink ?

–       First of all, prepare the smoothie yourself, at home. Don’t just rush to the supermarket to buy some milk & sugar rich beverage which will not offer you all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs.

–       Secondly, as a base, replace the milk/dairy products with almond milk, soy milk or coconut water.

–       You can add your favorite fruits, nuts, vegetables to the recipe, blend for a few minutes and enjoy.

–       The nicest thing about smoothies is that you can always improvise: you can add seeds, leaves, stems, fruit, pollen, yeast and mushrooms for a much more interesting taste.

Vegan smoothie diet

Smoothies are an excellent way to start the day: you will feel fresh and fully energized. For a vegan chocolate coconut smoothie, you need: frozen bananas, coconut milk, raw cacao and coconut shreds to put on top. This particular smoothie is so delicious and satisfying, that it can also be considered a desert, although it’s breakfast-approved. You can add some chia seeds as well, to complete your daily intake of fibers, omega-3 fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals. Place all ingredients above in the blender and blend until smooth, garnish and enjoy! Kids will also love this recipe because it’s sweet and tasty, even though it contains no added sugar.

If you want to shed a few pounds quickly, you can replace your breakfast/dinner with a vegan green smoothie which is great for weight loss. Of course, everyone will tell you that smoothies can replace meals, but, to avoid your body being deprived of the proteins and carbs it needs to function correctly, you can add some protein powder, seeds and nut butters into your juice.

Are you more into something surprisingly creative? Replace chocolate with green tea and prepare a vegan green tea chia smoothie. It’s an energy boost vegan smoothie made of banana, matcha powder, and chia seeds. Or you could try preparing a chocolate strawberry almond protein smoothie, that we can safely call ‘liquid health” due to the high quantities of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that will give you a real health boost.

No matter what smoothie recipe you love most, starting your day with a vitamin shot will have huge benefits for your health and well being. When you need a dose of energy, nutrition and hydration, treat yourself with a vegan chocolate coconut smoothie. Have you already tried it?
