The Superfood Smoothies Ava Johanna Swears By

Podcaster and mentor Ava Johanna shares three superfood smoothie recipes that keep her healthy and energized, even on her busiest days.

Once upon a time, when I worked my corporate job, nutrition and a healthy diet were the single least important things on my to-do list. I had far too many emails, meetings, and places to be to prioritize my meals. Looking back now, I laugh while simultaneously wanting to hug my former self for not knowing how crucial the food we put in our body is when it comes to fueling us throughout the day.

It’s no wonder that so many Americans are chronically inflamed, suffering from digestive issues, skin issues, and myriad other stress-induced problems. But, what if I told you that many of these problems are preventable simply by being intentional with what you choose to consume on a daily basis?

Enter the superfood smoothie.

With the inclusion of Navitas superfoods like cacao, acai, and maca powder to my typical smoothie, I know I am fueling my body for running around town interviewing guests for my podcast, spending the day at the beach, or giving me that extra glow after a whole day outside.

Ready to take your smoothies up a notch? Here are my three go-to recipes you can start adding to your daily routine.
