One of my favorite ways to start the day is with a yummy smoothie and it just so happens that this particular one tastes amazing too! Mornings are often times so rushed and so fast paced that we forget to take care of ourselves and feed our bodies healthy, vibrant foods. A nutrient packed smoothie is a fantastic way to do this!
It’s so easy to make and I have added to it my absolute favorite and natural way to balance hormones for both women and men. Maca powder. I use “Gelatinized Maca" because it is much easier on digestion as the starch is removed, Gelatinized Maca works the best for anyone with a sensitive stomach or trouble digesting starch. Not to mention the benefit of more concentrated nutrients.
Here’s all you’ll need:
1 cup Organic Almond Milk (or whatever non-dairy milk you prefer)
About 6 large organic frozen strawberries
1 cup fresh organic spinach
1 ripe organic banana
1 Tbsp. Organic Raw Coconut Butter (I prefer Artisana)
1-2 Tbsp. Organic Ground Chia Seed (I find ground easier on digestion)
1 rounded tsp. Organic Gelatinized Maca Powder (I love Gaia Herbs…just a little dab will do ya!)
Place all of the ingredients into your blender (I love my Vitamix!) in the order listed, blend at high power until completely smooth, and voila…a tall glass of nutrient dense yummy vitality! (Note, for the consistency that you like, add more almond milk as you see fit.) Really, it’s THAT easy!
