Back To School Smoothie Recipe Round-Up

There is a major shift in energy when we move from summer to fall. Kids are back in school and we’re back on our work grind. This calls for all the potent, nutrient-dense superfood smoothies we could ever need.


There are tons of ways to make quick, healthy, nutrient-dense smoothies that require little effort and can be enjoyed by the whole family. Add Philosophie Superfoods to your smoothies and make every food a superfood! Here are our top 5 superfood smoothies and a cacao pudding we love for the back to school season!

Kid-Friendly Nourishing Green Smoothie

We’ve loaded this smoothie with a blend of coconut water and nut milk to give it a touch of sweetness, frozen banana to make it thick & promotes healthy digestion, greens, berries, a date (nature’s candy), and superfoods! It’s super easy and you can make it entirely yours with whatever you have in your kitchen.


Gather This:

½ cup coconut water

½ cup nut milk

1 frozen banana

Handful of strawberries (tip: keep the stems on for extra greens!)

Date (1-3 depending on how sweet you want it!)

Handful of greens of choice

2 tbsp Cacao Magic OR 1 tbsp Berry Bliss and 1 tbsp Green Dream

Topped with: Bee Pollen and a scoop of yogurt alternative


Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender then pour into your favorite glass and top with bee pollen and a scoop of yogurt alternative. ENJOY!

Brain Boosting Smoothie

On days when you can’t be bothered to chop or roast veggies (we feel you), depend on your blender. Smoothies are a great meal replacement if they have the right balance of carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats to sustain you. This Brain Boosting Smoothie checks all of the boxes. Chocolate for lunch is perfectly acceptable when it comes from our high-vibe Cacao Magic.


Gather This:

1 cup nut milk

1 frozen banana

2-3 tbsp chopped walnuts

1 tbsp Cacao Magic

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes

1 tsp Cacao Bee Honey

1 tsp cinnamon

Two handfuls ice

Organic pomegranate seeds, cacao nibs, or chopped walnuts (for toppings)


Add all ingredients (except your toppings) to a high-speed blender and blend until creamy and smooth. If it’s too thick, add a bit more nut milk. Pour into your favorite glass, add your toppings, and enjoy!

Green Smoothie Bowl

There are really SO many variations you can do with a smoothie that makes it super easy to whip one up based on whatever you have in your kitchen. All you need is a good liquid base (nut milk and coconut water are my go-to's), frozen banana for fiber and creaminess (frozen makes it extra THICK), a nut butter, leafy greens, fresh or frozen fruits and most importantly, your superfoods (Philosophie Superfoods, of course!!) Psst...if you throw in some avocado you’ll basically get ice cream and who doesn’t want that?


Gather This:

Handful of ice

1 cup dairy-free milk

1 tbsp Green Dream 

1 banana (frozen)

1-2 handfuls of kale/spinach 

*If you’re easing into green smoothies, use ½ handful of kale or spinach, ½  tbsp Green Dream, and 2 frozen bananas.

*If bananas aren't your jam, swap 1 banana for 1 cup of mango or 1 cup of pineapple, or add both!

Toppings: cut fruit (kiwi + strawberries), blueberries, shredded coconut, bee pollen and edible flowers


Add everything to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth + creamy! Pour into your favorite glass, or bowl + ENJOY! 

Thick + Creamy Cacao Banana Smoothie

Cacao is rich in antioxidants and provides hormone-balancing benefits combined with the reishi mushrooms and plant protein found in our Cacao Magic, you have the perfect morning boost for natural, high-vibrational energy.


Gather This: 

1 frozen banana 

1 cup nut mylk

1 tbsp Cacao Magic

1 tbsp Coconut Magic Coconut Butter

1 tbsp your favorite nut butter (we love Georgia Grinders!)

1 pitted date

Mint Chocolate Pudding

This pudding is full of protein, nutrients and healthy fats from the avocado, coconut cream, and our superfood blends. It receives its delicious chocolatey flavor from the raw cacao powder in the Cacao Magic (which is made by grinding cacao beans into a paste and then removing the oils to create a fine powder).

Green Dream Guacamole Recipe

Alright all you avocado lovers, this one’s for you! It’s super simple to make and only uses a small handful of ingredients. It’s also completely gluten + dairy-free!

So if you’re looking for a dip to pair with veggies and crackers, or want a luscious topper for a burger, I’m pretty confident that this bowl of avocado heaven will hit the spot. The healthy fats are nourishing for our bodies and brains, and the Green Dream blend adds a detoxifying boost of spirulina. I also tried to brighten this dish up by adding some fresh herbs, onions and tomatoes, but if you prefer a more traditional version, you can always leave these ingredients on the side… they make great toppings!

If you should happen to run out of snacks to dip with, I highly recommend grabbing a spoon… this stuff is addicting!!!
 

Gather This:

10 cherry tomatoes
6-7 garlic cloves
3 avocados
1 jalapeno
1 lime, or lemon (juiced)
1 bunch of cilantro
1 tablespoon Green Dream Superfood Blend
½ red onion
salt + pepper to taste

     Do This:

    1. Add the herbs, garlic, jalapeno, and onions to a blender, and pulse for 2-3 minutes until a paste forms.

    2. Then, add the avocados, tomatoes and Green Dream. Pulse until all of the ingredients are incorporated.

    3. Season with salt, pepper and lime juice to taste!  

    4. Transfer to a bowl and enjoy immediately!!!

    Superfood Matcha Freezer Fudge

    Who's says you can't make clean & healthy sweets? We're here to show you otherwise! To make this mint and matcha fudge, you’ll need tahini, coconut cacao butter, pure maple syrup or Berry Bee or Green Bee Honey, matcha powder, and a few drops of pure peppermint oil (or extract if you don’t have oil). You’ll add them all to a double boiler and whisk together over medium-low heat until you have a smooth, creamy mixture. Then, you’ll pour it into a small, 3×5-inch pan or container (I use a glass tupperware container) and refrigerate until firm.
    .
    If you want to put any toppings on your fudge, wait about 20 minutes, and then add the toppings on the fudge. Bee pollen, coconut shreds and cacao nibs would all taste wonderful with this. Once it’s set, flip the container over, give it a forceful tap to release, and slice into bite-sized pieces of fudge.

    This fudge is perfectly smooth, creamy, rich, and superfood-kissed. It also offers an amazing cooling effect thanks to the peppermint! 
    Gather This: 
    1/2 cup Shirely Bar's Ethiopian Tahini
    1/4 cup cacao butter 
    1/4 cup coconut butter
    2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or Green Bee or Berry Bee Honey 
    1/2 tablespoon matcha powder
    1/2 tablespoon Green Dream Superfood Blend
    5-7 drops pure peppermint oil or peppermint extract to taste (optional)

      Do This:

      In a double boiler, combine all ingredients over medium-low heat. Whisk together for 3-5 minutes or until smooth. If you don't have a double boiler, simply put water in a larger pot and the ingredients in a smaller pot on top. Be careful not to put too much water in the lower/larger pot so that it doesn't boil into the top/smaller pot. You should only need about 1/2 up of water. 

      Grease a small 5x3-inch pan or plastic/glass container with coconut oil and pour the mixture into it. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm and completely set.

      Once set, turn container over and tap to release the fudge. Slice. Store in refrigerator or freezer.

      Chocolate & Peanut Butter Superfood Freezer Fudge

      We’re all about simplicity here at Philosophie and these superfood freezer fudge bars are perfecto! We’re sharing all you need to make these superfood chocolate & peanut butter fudge bars that are rich, chewy, melt in your mouth, and are made from a mix of raw cacao, plant protein, ashwagandha, and maca. 


      Maca and ashwagandha are so easy & good to add into smoothies, teas, and sometimes into bars such as these. Ashwagandha, raw cacao, and maca are all known for helping alleviate stress, anxiety, and supporting mood, energy, and memory. Maca also doubles as being a root tremendous in balancing hormones that also brings in the most delicious nutty flavor. These bars blend them all up, come out beyond fudgey, and are delish to enjoy on their own or best in my opinion, broken up on top of a smoothie bowl.


      These bars are made with our mood-boosting and hormone-balancing Cacao Magic Superfood Blend and superfood collagen blend, Cosmic Elixir. Our Cacao Magic is extremely high in antioxidants and magnesium, with no added sugar.


      Thanks to our Philosophie Babe Alexis Lahner (@lexlahnhealth) for creating this yummy, superfood-rich treat!

      1 tsp maca powder or Cosmic Elixir

      1 tsp ashwagandha powder or Cosmic Elixir

      1 tsp vanilla extract (not necessary if you’re using Cosmic Elixir)

      FOR THE TOPPING -

      ¼ cup unsweetened coconut shreds
