My Super-Smoothie Recipe
My perfect diet would involve eating large quantities of freshly picked, seasonal fruits and vegetable, along with raw dairy products from grass-fed, A2 cows, eggs from pastured chickens, and lots of nose-to-tail grass-fed meat. Ideally, this would all be in some tropical environment where the soil and water supply is free of contaminants.
Alas, we do not live in such a world. Or, at least, I’m not yet rich enough to do so. I must therefore supplement my diet of NYC-based foods with a wide array of nutrient-dense seeds and powders to try and cram as much nutrition as possible into my regular routine. And what better way to do so then by tossing them all into a massive Super Smoothie?
Many of the following ingredients could be taken in capsule form (for those weak of taste buds), but I find that it’s both easier and cheaper to just drink it all down. Especially when it comes to things that are best taken in larger volumes.
Tips, Tools & Additions
I used to spend 20+ minutes making each smoothie, zenning out to some podcast or audiobook. I soon realized how ridiculous this was, so now I do some advance prep, making ~8 smoothies worth of the dry ingredients all at once (usually limited by some ingredient or other that I’m running low on). This allows me to just scoop out a few cups of the mix, add in the handful of wet / fresh ingredients, and have my smoothie ready in under 5 minutes.
NOTE: While a kitchen scale isn’t strictly necessary for this, it makes the process a whole lot easier.
Additions – I often throw in fresh ginger, mint, basil, or other herbs or produce that I have on-hand. This is great both for their health benefits and for the taste.
WARNING: This smoothie is like jet-fuel for your system, but the taste may be hard for some to palate. If you are having difficulties, it might help to do some combination of adding in stevia, raw honey, more Vitamin C, or more berries.
- Macro Ingredients
- 2 Cup Whole Milk
- 1 Cup Homemade Yogurt
- 1.5 cups Mixed Berries (blackberries, raspberries, blueberries)

- 36 g Black Chia Seeds
- 10 g Collagen Hydrolysate
- 1 cup Ice Cubes
- Micro Ingredients
- 2 tsp Maca Root Powder
- 1 tbsp Cocoa Powder, Unsweetened
- 3 tsp Ashwaganda Root Powder
- 1.5 g Pine Pollen
- 750 mg GABA
- 1 1/2 tsp Magnesium Glycinate
- 5 g Creatine Monohydrate
- 4 g Ascorbic Acid (_Vitamin C_)
- 1/2 tsp Inositol, Vitamin B8
- 3 g Colostrum-LD
- 7 g Spirulina Powder
- 7 g Beet Root Powder

- 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
- 1 tsp Turmeric

- 1 tbsp Green Superfood Powder
- Add milk, yogurt, ice cubes, and Vitamin C.
- Add remaining ingredients
- Blend until well combined. If you have a very powerful blender, don't blend so long that all seeds are fully liquidized.
The reason for adding the ice cubes and Vitamin C first is that they help minimize any oxidative stress on the ingredients during the blending process.
Due to the quantity of powders, it is sometimes necessary to use a knife to scrape powder build-ups off the side of the blender.
Time Saving Tip I like to take a large container and mix up ~8 smoothies worth of the powdered ingredients in advance, making sure to shake extremely well to evenly distribute them. This allows each subsequent smoothie to be made in <5 minutes.
