An Ayurvedic-inspired warming smoothie for the colder months. Veggies, fruit, and warming spices nourish the body without cooling it down. A delicious afternoon snack, workout recovery drink, or morning breakfast.
Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender (starting with the lesser amount of dairy-free milk) and blend on high until creamy and smooth, adding more dairy-free milk (or water) as needed. Spirulina and/or greens are optional additions that help make the smoothie green and more nutritious.
Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more spices for warmth, ginger for spice/zing, or banana or protein powder for sweetness.
Serve and enjoy immediately. Garnish with additional hemp seeds or ground turmeric if desired (optional). Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator up to 24 hours, though best when fresh. You can also freeze leftovers in an ice cube tray and add to future smoothies.
*In place of the fresh ginger, ground turmeric, ground cinnamon, and black pepper, you can sub 1 tsp of my Golden Milk Mix per smoothie. *Nutrition information is a rough estimate calculated with Tropeaka vanilla protein powder and MALK cashew milk and without optional ingredients.
