The Perfect Energizing Breakfast

Fruit Smoothie and Raw Energy Bar 

Smoothies are super easy to make!!
This recipe makes enough for 2 big glasses and they are filling! I add Maca Powder for an energizer and acai berry for the antioxidants. They both have a lot of benefits and are worth checking out. 

Smoothie Ingredients: 

1/2 Papaya
1 Apple cored
1 cup Cherries
1 Carrot
4 Ice Cubes
1/2 cup Water add extra as needed

1tbsp Lime Juice
1 tbsp Maca Powder
1 tbsp Acai Berry

Energy Bars are my favorite smoothie companion. These are also easy to make and only require a blender and refrigerator. You can always swap out ingredients that are similar. Get creative!

Energy Bar Ingredients:

3 cups Nuts and Seeds of Choice
I used Pecans, Walnuts, Sunflower Seeds, and Pumpkin Seeds
4-5 Dates
1 Cup Raisins or substitute for Figs
1/2 cup sweet Cacao Nibs
2 tbsp Oil I used Coconut Oil
1 tbsp Maca Powder -The energizer ingredient
1 tsp salt

Vanilla Bean or extract
Agave Nectar
