Sweet ripe blackberries and tart green apple are perfect partners for making a low glycemic smoothie. Add plenty of greens, creamy avocado, hearty hemp hearts, and a touch fragrant basil, and you have a dream for all the senses.
The superfood boost: mushrooms!
Nowadays, there are lots of different powdered mushroom blends on the market as these funky fungi are known to be ultra-immune boosters and anti-aging warriors. You can go with a pure blend of red reishi or chaga, or use my current favourite – a blend of 14 different kinds of mushroom! I've found that most kinds are very neutral tasting and therefore undetectable in your smoothie.
3/4 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
1/2 a green apple
big handful spinach
1/3 – 1/2 avocado
1 Tbsp hemp hearts
2 basil leaves (or more if you looooove it)
1 to 2 tsps powdered mushroom blend (optional)
1 1/2 cups, or more, of filtered water
