This delicious smoothie is a great way to consume berries, dark leafy greens and plant-based protein on a regular basis. We've added some additional ingredients like spirulina, ginger and turmeric to boost immunity and reduce inflammation.
1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (we like almond, coconut, pea and oat milk)
3/4 cup wild blueberries, frozen (or frozen mixed berries)
1/4 cup dark sweet cherries, frozen (or frozen pineapple or dragonfruit)
1/2 banana, frozen
1 cup organic baby spinach (or kale)
1 serving protein powder (or 3 Tbsp hemp hearts)
1 Tbsp nut butter (or seed butter)
1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
1/4-inch piece raw ginger, peeled
1/4-inch piece raw turmeric, peeled
½ tsp spirulina
1 serving dried mushroom powder (and/or acai powder, maca powder)
2 pitted dates, optional (for added sweetness)
add enough water to cover the ingredients
ice cubes, optional
To a high-speed blender, add the milk and then the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth and creamy. Best enjoyed immediately.
Note: Make a batch of freezer smoothie bags to save time in the morning. Add all the ingredients to a quart size freezer ziploc bag, except for the plant milk and water. Freeze for up to a month. To serve, add the contents of one freezer bag to blender plus the plant milk and water. Blend until smooth and creamy. Enjoy!
