Superfood – Maquiberry Smoothie

Seriously, I felt like someone who is so not tech-savvy in this digital age. This is mainly the reason for my procrastination. Anyway, I finally got a hang of this whole formatting of page and what not,  hopefully it will get easier as time goes by:) Sharing something quick and easy for breakfast which includes a superfood , Maquiberry.

Here is a short google research for you if you’ve not heard of maquiberry.

” Two “super berries” on the market claim to be beneficial supplements, packed with nutrients, antioxidants, omega fatty acids and fiber. Both the acai and maqui berries make health claims including detoxification and cleansing, antiaging, immune support, anti-inflammatory benefits and treatment for common issues such as sore throat and fever to more serious diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer. Both berries are undoubtedly nutritious, but there are some differences to consider when choosing which one to take.”

Maquiberry smoothie

  • 2 cups of unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 pitted medjool dates
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp maquiberry powder
  • 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries

Get your hands working:

Blend everything in a blender until smooth consistency. That’s all. 🙂 I’ve added some crunchy toppings such as chopped pistaschios , cacao nibs, toasted buckinis and some strawberry slices. You may omit all these additional toppings if you just want a simple drink. I like mine to have some crunch in them which makes it more dimensional.

One thing about smoothie is that the entire process of making it is very simple and it’s really a no brainer. You just need 1 cup of liquid, 1 frozen banana and 1/2 cup of frozen fruit or veggie, to get a basic smoothie. It’s that simple:)

**Kitchen tricks: slice and freeze ripe bananas before you sleep.

Enjoy!
