Green smoothies don't work in the winter months. They can make you cold. Nourish your body with a superfood-laden warm smoothie instead.
1 1/2 cups coconut or almond milk
1 Tbsp nut butter (I like cashew butter)
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1 tsp Maca Powder
1 tsp Raw Cacao (or cocoa powder)
1 Tbsp Raw Honey, or several drops of liquid Stevia
Splash of Pure Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Coconut Oil
½ tsp Cinnamon
Dash of ginger, nutmeg, turmeric, cardamom, sea salt
Put all of the ingredients into a saucepan and warm over low heat. You don’t want it to come to a bubble because high heat destroys the nutritional properties of the honey and cacao. Gently stir to combine everything. Then, pour into a blender and whip till frothy. Pour into a mug, sprinkle with cinnamon or extra chia seeds and enjoy on a cold day!
