Holiday Giveaway: Win a Superfood Smoothie Kit from Beaming
December 20, 2014

We’re about to enter the season of resolutions, and we all know what this means. Lots of chatter about trimming, toning, cleaning, detoxing, and other such goals. It’s hard to turn all of this food noise out, but what we can try to replace it with worthier and less superficial goals. Maybe your goal at the start of 2015 is to incorporate more greens into your diet, or to find more creative ways to enjoy vegetables. Maybe it’s the goal of learning to batch cook more effectively, to bring leftovers to work, to plan meals so that you can face each week of the new year with a healthy array of food already at your fingertips. Maybe your goal is to be gentler to yourself, to take heed of your body’s needs, to listen to it more closely, or to nourish yourself better. Each time you feel tempted to set a goal that is (whether outwardly stated or subtly implicated) oriented toward shaping your body into an aesthetic mold, I’d challenge you to set a gentle, sensible, health-oriented intention instead.

One great intention for any new year–or heck, any new day–is to incorporate more nutrient dense smoothies into your life. Smoothies are such an endlessly creative vehicle for healthful foods and superstar ingredients, and they’re a reliably nutritious, easy-to-prepare meal. As we hover on the brink of a new year, I’ve been thinking what I could offer readers that might get the creative nutrition juices flowing, and I’ve got just the thing: a superfood smoothie kit from Beaming.

You guys know Beaming. I wrote about them last year, raving about the company’s inspiring story and mission, extolling the taste of its superfood-packed protein powder, and sharing my experience tasting the company’s awesome juices and smoothie blends. I love this brand; I love the creativity they bring to smoothies, and I love the fact that their products are as delicious and indulgent as they are health-aware.

However, my to go all time favorite smoothie recipe is a scoop of plant fusion chocolate protein powder, a scoop of greens powder, macs, spirulina, frozen banana and watermelon, spinach, and almond milk (except they have come out with a cashew milk and it is freaking delicious!). Blendy blend and slurp, thats heaven right there.

  15. Here’s one that I really enjoy: almond milk (can do 1/2 milk & 1/2 water to lighten consistency), raw cacao powder, goji berry, maca, banana, handful of nuts (cashew or walnut is great) or peanut butter. Can also add chia or hemp to boost protein.

  16. I smoothies seem so boring compared to everyone else’s! I need to try a few of these!!

  17. My favorite is spinach, banana, flax seed, peanut butter, cocoa powder, almond milk, and soy milk. I make a multi serving smoothie every morning and share with whichever of my housemates are lucky enough to be in the kitchen at the time!

  18. My favorite combination is frozen banana, peanut butter and cacao powder. You can’t beat that!

  19. their protein blend looks amazing! this might be just the push i need to get back into smoothies despite the freezing weather in nyc…

  20. I love a matcha and spirulina smoothie. I usually have banana, greens, and some proteins added in there (chia, flax, rice protein, etc depending on the day) Somedays I wonder if it tastes good, or if I tricked my brain into thinking it is super tasty.

  21. I love frozen banana, cocoa powder, coconut milk, maca and a bit of protein powder, sometimes with some greens powder if I’m feeling frisky 🙂

  22. i love 1/2 frozen banana, cherries, cocoa powder, spinach, almond butter, choco protein powder, and almond milk!

  26. Mango or berries with something to add a dash of unexpected flavor like ginger or cayenne pepper.

  27. Banana + oats + walnuts + dark chocolate chips + sea salt for an oatmeal cookie smoothie! Otherwise banana + spinach + celery + lime juice for a greener, brighter taste.

  28. Banana, protein powder, almond milk, and vanilla. I would add greens but my poor college-budget blender doesn’t really break them up well. I just get lots of little chunks of leaves rather than a uniform smoothie.

  29. My favorite smoothies tend to involve peanut butter and spinach, although I had a really fabulous oatmeal cookie smoothie this morning that gave peanut butter a run for its money!

  30. Usually almond/flax milk base with greens, berries, frozen banana, and protein powder. Maca is probably my favorite superfood to add in.

  31. Playing around using Baby Bok Choy in my smoothie – want to get a nice variety of greens every week.

  32. My favorite combination is anything with yogurt or peanut butter, it makes it super creamy!

  51. This time of year I love orange, mango, banana with some greens and a bit of vanilla and a little chia.
