Berry and ginger smoothie:
Colored? Yeah, you could say that. Mixed with beets and berries, you get on the train for the city flavor. Additionally, you can increase the fiber content by adding chia and hemp seeds. Let’s not forget, this is also a vegan gluten free option, which only means that it is a totally smart option when it comes to weight loss.

1 handful of baby spinach
1 medium beet, peeled
1/2 cup of fresh or frozen berries
1 piece of peeled fresh ginger
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
2 tablespoons of hemp hearts
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 1/4 cup water
Two step? Sign me up! First, cut the beet in half or into quarters depending on its size. Second, mix all the ingredients until smooth.
Maple Kabocha smoothie:
Hmm, soy and gluten free, plus it’s a vegan recipe. It sounds unsatisfactory when it comes to taste, but this is where you go wrong. The Kabocha Maple Smoothie is blended with maple syrup that packs a punch in the avenue of sweet and savory taste buds.

1/2 inch of fresh ginger
1/4 kabocha squash, peeled, seeded and roasted
1/2 cup coconut water
