Before these two recipes, every smoothie I made at home was disgusting.
Banana Turmeric Coffee Smoothie
2 frozen bananas
1 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp Triphala or maca powder or whatever booster you want.
1 tbsp golden milk powder*
6-8oz cold coffeeMethod:
Blend on high speed until smooth. Add more liquid if its to thick. A thicker version would also make a great smoothie bowl topped with granola and coconut...
* Golden Milk Powder
This brand is awesome, or you can make your own:
Mix this all together and store in a jar.
I add it to the banana smoothie but I also drink it on its own by mixing a teaspoon of it into hot water, adding a tsp of honey, and voila: a warm an nourishing anti-inflammatory cup of goodness.
1 cup coconut flour (its just finely ground coconut)
1/4 cup turmeric powder
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
optional: maca powder
Berry Cacao & Beet Smoothie
1 large handful of frozen raspberries or another berry you like
1 cup non- dairy milk. I like coconut or cashew
1 heaping scoop of coconut yogurt
1 tbsp of red beet powder ( No joke- this is amazing veggie add-in and easy to find in most health food grocery stores)
1 small handful cacao nibs- toss half in the blender and save some for the top of your smoothie.Method:
Toss it all in a high powered blender and blend until very smooth.
Top with extra cacao nibs for crunch.
Maca powder, other unflavoured protein powder if you are using.
