Sunday Smoothies: Meal Prep Your Week Of Body-Healing + Brain-Boosting Smoothies

Smoothies are a year-round staple in our household. They’re the perfect breakfast or snack for those crazy busy days during the week. Over the years, I’ve gotten my smoothie-making skills down to a science, and a lot of that includes prepping them on Sunday for the week ahead. It’s seriously the easiest way to start your day! Just add your favorite smoothie base and go! In our house, we love to make our smoothies with a variety of plant-based milks by Mooala, a company that offers organic plant-based milks that are available to purchase on Amazon. They’re made with real ingredients like organic almonds, organic bananas and gluten-free oats, plus they are packed with great nutrients like calcium, potassium and vitamin E. And you, my sugar-avoiding friends, can rejoice – Mooala’s plant-based milks don’t contain any added sugar! Mooala is a fabulous option for busy ladies because you can have the beverages delivered directly to your door, and you don’t have to worry about them expiring quickly since they’re shelf-stable. We love to stock up on our favorite varieties of Almondmilk, Oatmilk and my personal favorite, Bananamilk! (Psst…we have a special 10% off code for Glitter Guide readers at the bottom!)

Sundays are my meal prep days, which also includes prepping my different smoothies for the week. After a trip to the farmers’ market for local produce, I start assembling my “smoothie packs.” It makes it so easy to have them ready to grab in the morning. Just add your favorite Mooala plant-based milk and blend! 

With so many different varieties of plant-based milks, I love making an intentional smoothie recipe for each day of the week that helps provide a range of nutritional benefits. I’ll share with you a typical week of delicious, easy-to-make smoothies that beautify and nourish from the inside out.

Monday 〰 Brain-Boosting

Ingredients:

Combine the Mooala Coconut Oatmilk and avocado in a blender. Add the blueberries, spinach and walnuts. Blend until smooth.

Blueberries and walnuts are brain-boosting superfoods. The powerful antioxidants they contain are your brain’s best friend! Plus, Mooala Coconut Oatmilk is a good source of fiber and calcium, and is made with real, gluten-free oats and organic coconut cream.

Tuesday 〰 Glowing Skin

Ingredients: 

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

In addition to being dairy- and gluten-free, Mooala Unsweetened Original Almondmilk contains 0 grams of sugar per serving and is made with organic almonds. Also, flax seeds and raspberries are really high in omega-3s, which help with inflammation, redness and other skin conditions.

Wednesday 〰 Energy Booster

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Mooala Unsweetened Vanilla Bean Almondmilk
  • 1 banana (make sure to cut into slices before freezing for easier blending)
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter powder
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

This smoothie is almost like dessert, it’s so yummy! The Vanilla Bean Almondmilk is made with real, organic almonds and organic vanilla beans with 0 grams of sugar per serving. Each cup serving is a great source of calcium and a good source of vitamin E. Plus, the bananas and peanut butter make for the perfect midweek pick-me-up to get you through an energy slump.

Thursday 〰 Gut-Healing

Ingredients:

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Mooala Unsweetened Almondmilk is a good source of vitamin E and calcium, berries and spinach add extra fiber, while ginger helps settle the stomach, making this smoothie perfect for helping you detox before the weekend.

Friday 〰 Immunity Booster

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Mooala Bananamilk
  • 1 cup dragon fruit (or frozen pitaya)
  • ½ cup frozen oranges
  • ½ cup frozen kiwi
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Handful of pomegranate seeds
  • Squeeze of lemon juice

Combine the Bananamilk and frozen fruit in a blender. Add the pomegranate seeds, ginger and turmeric. Blend until smooth.

Dragonfruit is not only super Instagramable, it’s also a great source of prebiotics, which boost the good bacteria in your gut, and high in antioxidants, particularly vitamin C, which supports the immune system and keeps you feeling your best. Mooala Bananamilk is also a good source of potassium and calcium, and is made with real, organic bananas without any added sugar (only 4 grams of sugar per serving). 

With smoothies, the possibilities are endless! Luckily, we always have a large supply of Mooala plant-based milks on hand to help create whatever flavor combination that our hearts desire.
