I recently caught a little cold from my kids (Thanks boys!) and to help fight it I’ve been drinking lots of tea, smoothies and golden milk. Then this morning I had the bright idea to combine the golden milk with the green smoothie. What’s better than a green smoothie? A green smoothie with spices to kick things up a notch! I liked it so much that I thought it was worth sharing.
Since golden milk is served warm I didn’t bother making the milk first and instead just added the spices used for that recipe into my green smoothie. It was subtle but definitely added a different taste, which I liked a lot.
1 cup chopped fruit (frozen or fresh)
1 handful fresh spinach or kale
½ cup orange juice
½ cup almond or coconut milk
⅛ cup blanched sliced almonds
½ teaspoon maca powder
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon spirulina powder
½ teaspoon garlic or very small piece of fresh garlic
½ tablespoon chia seeds
Combine all ingredients (except for chia seeds) into blender and blend until smooth. Stir in chia seeds and enjoy!
I kept the recipe neutral so that it can be personalized however, for mine I used what’s seen in the photo below: a fresh banana, frozen mango, frozen pineapple, Silk’s almond/coconut milk combo, spinach and baby kale.
