Here is the info on the add ins...

Eclectic Institute Raw Kale Powder (056836): Kale is one of the most nutritious of all vegetables. This powder is made from fresh, whole, raw Kale and custom freeze-dried. Freeze-drying is the best method for preserving the complex chemistry, active enzymes and entire matrix of a plant in its fresh form.
Alacer Emergen C Immune + With Vitamin D Blueberry-Acai (073348): Supplement provides key nutrients including vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc and a proprietary immune complex with beta glucans.*
Puritan’s Pride Psyllium Husk Seed 100% Natural: Psyllium Husk (010992): is rich in soluble fiber, to keep your digestive tract moving smoothly.* Fiber naturally slows down digestion, making it possible for your body to absorb more nutrients. Plus, the fiber in Psyllium Husk Seed Powder helps your body eliminate what it doesn’t use, making for a cleaner colon.*

Whats your favorite fall smoothie/drink?


  1. I love starting the morning off with a smoothie. I'm able to get tons of vitamins and minerals into my body first thing in the morning and I swear it makes a HUGE difference in how I feel that day.

  2. Here is where I shared your post with my fans on Facebook:

  3. Smoothies are my favorite thing to eat for breakfast! There are lots of great options here to help me change it up so I don't get bored. Thanks for sharing! :)

  4. This is probably one of my favorites (+ the prettiest) that I've ever made! :D

  5. Oh boy you really turned these smoothies up a NOTCH!!!!! That spicy green lemon vanilla cleanser sounds like a winner.

  6. My favorite smoothie at any time of the year is a basic StrawberryBanana smoothie. I usually add Greek yogurt rather than protein powders although I have used some in the past. I will have to give your Belly Soother a try!

  7. my favorite is: Protein powder, almond milk, frozen banana, frozen fruit, and spinach :)

  8. I am booking this! I need some new smoothie ideas!

  9. I love smoothies with protein powder, spinach, bananas, sometimes avocado . . .

  10. Very cool. Love the smoothie recipes! :)

  11. I'm not a smoothie person, but that first one sounds pretty yummy!

  12. I love the idea of adding Energen-C to a smoothie!

  13. My favorite smoothie is super basic: Chocolate whey protein powder (almost any brand will do), handful of baby spinach, handful of frozen berries, handful of ice, voila!

  14. Peanut Butter Protein Shake: •1 Scoop Chocolate Whey Protein • 1 Tbsp. Natural Peanut Butter •1/2 Banana 1 Cup Almond Milk •2 Ice Cubes

  15. Waldorf Salad smoothie...apples, walnuts, celery, almond milk, vanilla protein powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger. It is delish!

  16. I love a very berry smoothie loaded with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries either fresh or frozen blended with almond milk, vanilla protein powder and some dates too for sweetness and fiber!

  17. A strawberry banana peanut butter blend with protein and milk is my favorite mixture!

  18. Vanilla protein blended in coconut water with peaches pineapples and strawberries is my favorite blend!

  19. I pinned Smoothie #1 Blueberry Cinnamon Soothe
