green-smoothie

Turmeric is an anti-flammatory spice, making it the perfect addition to this recovery smoothie. Berries and leafy greens are high in antioxidants, which means they help prevent and slow down cell damage. Chia seeds are high in Omega-3s, fiber, and vegetarian protein - one ounce has 4.4 grams of protein, almost as much as a serving of meat! 

 

 

Ingredients Amount
Banana 1/2-1 whole
Avocado 1/2
Berries 1/2 Cup
Raw Cocoa Nibs 2 Tsp.
Coconut oil 1 Tbsp.
Chia seeds 2 Tsp.
Spinach or Kale 1 Cup
Turmeric 1 Tsp.
Water Enough for the consistency you prefer
Ginger, cinnamon, or cardamom (optional) To taste
Quality protein powder (optional) 2 tsp.

Directions

Combine all ingredients and blend to your desired consistency. For a heartier smoothie, use kale; for a silkier smoothier, use spinach.
