Warm, sweet spices and satisfying protein make this smoothie a wonderful way to start your day or refuel at lunch. Organic superfoods provide complete proteins to build and repair the body, while golden turmeric calms inflammation to soothe muscles.
¾ cup (6 oz.) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
½ cup frozen banana slices (about half a banana)
1 tbsp. organic coconut oil
1 tbsp. organic peanut butter (or your favorite nut butter)
1 tsp. ground organic turmeric
½ tsp. ground organic ginger
1/8 tsp. ground organic cinnamon
2 scoops Organic Super Protein
Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy. Enjoy!
Spices don’t just add warmth and flavor. Many spices are packed with healthy antioxidants. The golden spice turmeric is one of the most powerful of all, with research showing it is a natural anti-inflammatory so it soothes muscles after a workout. And when you take turmeric with healthy fats like those found in this smoothie, you maximize its absorption.
Organic coconut oil is full of MCTs, which provide sustained energy, and help to reduce body fat, especially around the belly area (1). MCTs and protein work even better together to help achieve your workout goals (2).
Organic Super Protein provides 18g of plant protein sourced from organic superfoods, more energizing MCTs to help satisfy cravings, and organic omegas to support heart health.
