5 Delicious Supercharged CBD Smoothies

Smoothies have become breakfast in our household; both my husband and I start every day with one. Smoothies are nutritious and easy to make. They are packed with nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Here are 5 Delicious CBD Supercharged Smoothies to start your day. Adding CBD to your smoothie is an optimal way to support your existing wellness routine.

5 Delicious Supercharged CBD Smoothies

If you are already ingesting CBD but sometimes forget or get too busy, adding CBD to your morning smoothie will soon become a regular part of your day.

What are Smoothies?

The concept of the original smoothie was born in California in the ’60s where people who worked out were looking for energy drinks low in calories and fat. It was made up of fruit and juices, frozen or fresh, and ice.

Today, the smoothie is a concoction of fruit and juices, frozen or fresh, combined with a liquid such as milk or non-dairy products (rice milk, almond milk, or hemp milk) and even water.

We combine delicious fruits and vegetables, and proteins such as nuts, seeds or protein powder, in a blender, to give our smoothies a nutritional boost. Since we travel a lot, we use a small mini blender and take it with us wherever we go.

Fruits and Veggies You Can Use

We are fortunate here in Mexico that fresh fruit and vegetables are available every day but even those times when we don’t have access to fresh, we can always use frozen. When adding frozen, I usually take out the desired amount and set it aside to thaw a bit. But if you just want to go ahead and toss them in the blender, I would suggest adding them first before adding other ingredients. Adding frozen ingredients first and enough liquid to cover them ensures a smooth and blended smoothie.

Fruits and veggies you can add to your morning smoothie include, but are not limited to:

  • Berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, goji berries, etc).
  • Pineapple
  • Papaya
  • Melons (watermelon, honeydew)
  • Apples
  • Mangos (a particular favourite of my husband)
  • Cranberries
  • Avocados (even here they can be expensive but we watch for good deals)
  • Dark leafy greens (kale, baby spinach, arugula)
  • Beets
  • Cilantro (my all-time go-to smoothie)
  • Cucumber

Other items you can add:

  • Nuts (almonds, walnuts)
  • Oats
  • Cacao powder
  • Almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk
  • Almond butter (or you can use organic peanut butter)
  • Yogurt (Greek or kefir)
  • Cottage cheese
  • Hemp seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds
  • Protein powder
  • Cottage cheese
  • Raw egg
  • Sweeteners (raw honey, stevia, pure maple syrup

NOTES:

  • mg – milligram
  • tsp – teaspoon
  • tbsp – tablespoon
  • Blend all ingredients except CBD Oil. When smooth and creamy, add CBD Oil and pulse for another 10-15 seconds

You can use your favourite CBD oil or try Joy Organics Natural CBD Tinctures.

NOTES:

  • You can add ice to any of these smoothies or if using frozen ingredients, skip the ice
  • You can substitute the almond milk with any other nut milk*, rice milk, seed milk (buy unsweetened if possible), or water
  • Add a small handful of nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts), chia seeds or hemp seeds for added protein
  • If you choose to add protein powder, read labels to find out how much protein you are getting in a scoop
  • Be creative – there so many delicious fruits and veggies available, and you are only limited by your imagination and taste buds

Final Thoughts

There are no specific guidelines for the amount of CBD you should be taking. The 15mg suggested in these recipes is on the low side. You may already have a dosage you are taking per day so judge accordingly. A high amount would be considered 60+ mg/day. Adding a broad or full-spectrum CBD oil will support your daily wellness routine.

  1. Thank you for your post. To be honest, I have been avoiding all the “propaganda” and “hype” about CBD because I just assumed it was the new fad that would die with time. I also was very uneducated about what it really was, and just assumed that hemp was equivalent to marijuana. 

    For some reason, I have been recently been more curious to all the benefits that CBD has to offer and it was not hard to discover, the numerous health benefits.  I love your site because I am a smoothie lover. The first one I will definitely be trying is the creamy avocado blueberry and ginger smoothie.

    Thank you.

    • Hi Cynthia. I am glad you are giving CBD a second chance and looking into it more closely. I hope you enjoy the smoothies. While the Blueberry/Avocado, Ginger one is great, my favourite is the Cilantro. Fresh blueberries are hard to come by here and strawberries are expensive so I opt for the frozen ones while I am in Mexico.
