This warm smoothie is a perfectly soothing start to a bone–chilling winter’s day, abundant with healing nutrients and flavor. A powerful trifecta of superseeds ((hemp, chia, flax)) provide omega-3s, protein and healthy fats. Known for its cleansing properties, a touch of psyllium husk adds an extra touch of filling fiber. Turmeric and ginger protect your joints, while cinnamon and nutmeg add warm flavor and depth.
These ingredients (along with a few others) combine with chaga tea to create a deeply nourishing smoothie that won’t leave you with a brain freeze during these bitter winter months. This herbal mushroom tea is teeming with healing benefits – loaded with antioxidants (more than blueberries) that protect cells from free radicals while also providing a revitalizing boost for the immune system. Recognition of its impressive medicinal properties date back to the 16th century and make a wonderful addition to your tea collection.
Stay warm. Stay grounded. Stay at peace.
