smoothie tools

  • measuring spoons
  • measuring cups
  • blender
  • optional spice grinder (this is what I use to grind the chia seed)

smoothie ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp. reishi mushroom powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Lion’s Mane mushroom powder
  • 1/2 tsp. shitake mushroom powder
  • 1 tsp. dandelion root powder
  • 2 Tbsp. chia seed, ground
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 large handful of spring mix salad (These can be from a variety of greens, often these 7 plants, butter lettuce (aka oak lettuce), green romaine lettuce (aka baby red lettuce), arugula, baby spinach, lolla rossa, tango lettuce (aka curled leaf lettuce), and radicchio
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1/4 frozen avocado
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 cup mixed frozen berries (I use a 4 berry and cherry mix)
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 12oz. bottle Super Coffee or 1 1/2 cups of your preferred milk beverage
  • about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of water for blending

smoothie instructions

  1. First, add the dry powders to the blender
  2. On top of that, add the spring mix
  3. Next, wash celery stalks and break them in approximate thirds to fit into the blender
  4. Pour in your frozen items
  5. Add the Super Coffee or your preferred milk
  6. Finally, blend until thoroughly incorporated.

I pour about a 1/3 of a cup of water into my empty Super Coffee bottle to rinse out every last bit of flavor and add to the smoothie to assist in blending. I go for more of a soft-serve ice cream consistency than a liquid drink. I eat my smoothie with a spoon. I find it a satisfying brunch!

smoothie notes

My husband bought me the Cuisinart spice grinder almost 20 years ago. I love it! This is one of the things I leave on the counter, as I use it daily. You can use this to grind whole spices (more confidence in what you are actually getting) and have optimal freshness and flavor in your ground spice.

I use Super Coffee for a boost of protein. I like unsweetened vanilla almond milk for the kids (ALDI has a nice inexpensive version). Note: Super Coffee has 200 mg. of caffeine. I do not recommend it for kids! However, it is a great way to start your mom-day.
