Turmeric Spinach Recovery Smoothie

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.

ChiRunning began to enrich my life on July 3, 2010 when I read the first 100 pages of the book and went for a run, and just focusing on ankle lift made a difference! My running life continues to transform and create joy! I smile when I run and love every minute. I am thrilled and grateful to be part of this ChiRunning community. Thank you for the opportunity to pursue becoming an Instructor.
