  • 14 ounces water {or 1/2 coffee}
  • 1/4 cup raw soaked nuts
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 3 tbsp. hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp. cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • scoop fiber
  • 1 tsp coffee extract
  • 1 tsp maple extract {optional}
  • dash stevia

Warning:  this drink might make you high……  It does contain hemp seeds, which some of you are wondering, is this legal?!  What kind of blog is this?  With a little research, one can be assured that this majestic seed will deliver in many ways, but I promise the only high you will feel is the natural energy you get from feeding your body these super foods!

The hemp in this recipe gives this energy drink 10 grams of protein!  Hemp seeds contains all 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids and they have high amounts of fatty acids.  I prefer using the whole seed rather than the protein powders you can buy in containers.  This assures me I am getting the most out of this grandiose seed.

These are the adjectives we all should be able to use to describe ourselves in order to know that we are healthy!  Regular, vibrant energy, clear skin, clear thinking,…. did I have you at regular?  This superfood smoothie will have you just that!!  All of that, I should say!


Coffee Superfood Smoothie {dairy and gluten free, paleo & vegan}
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 1-2
  • 14 ounces water {or ½ coffee}
  • ¼ cup raw soaked walnuts {any nuts}
  • 1 small frozen banana
  • 3 tbsp. hempseeds
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp. cacao powder
  • scoop of clean fiber
  • 1 tsp coffee extract
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • dash stevia
  1. In a Vitamix or strong blender add liquid, nuts, banana and blend.
  2. Add hemp seeds, cacao powder, fiber, extracts and coconut oil.
  3. Blend together and add stevia to taste.
  4. Drink right away, as the longer it sits the smoothie will thicken due to the fiber.
If you use coffee you can omit the extract. Ice the coffee before using in the smoothie. I use decaffeinated extract or the organic instant freeze dried coffee. This super food smoothie has about 20 grams of protein naturally and not to mention all the amazing minerals and vitamins from iron to magnesium! When adding fiber choose a clean pure psyllium powder. Please use organic wherever you can.





This is the coconut oil and psyllium husk we use!

    Dawn, I just had to try this as it sounded so yummy.
    I only used 8 oz of water and real coffee instead of coffee extract, real maple syrup instead of maple extract and 1 packet of Truvia along with the rest of the ingredients listed. It is delicious!!!
    And yes it does thicken up the longer it sits!
    This tastes like a yummy dessert!
    I bet you could pour this into dessert dishes and leave in the fridge for dessert!! I think it would be like a healthy mousse. What do you think??

      Hi Terri!! So excited you made it your own! Yes, the chia absorbs 9x its weight in water so it does help in thickening recipes. I love your idea of making this a coffee mousse pudding!! I have added coffee extract to my chocolate stuffed strawberry pudding and it was so yummy! Let me know how it turns out if you add more chia etc.

    Dawn, I can’t wait to try adding some coffee extract to the strawberry pudding. What a great idea! I’ll let you know about the mousse when I get a chance to make it. I would like to try it in the morning though.

    My daughter makes Chocolate Chia pudding a lot!
