WHOLESOME INGREDIENTS

Serves 1

1 Cup Fresh Spinach (or 1/2 cup frozen)

1/2 tsp Cinnamon – (or more to taste)

1 medium banana

1/2 cup pineapple

STEPS TO SOMETHING DELICIOUS

Blend 30 seconds to 1 minute (every blender is different) until there are no more chunks and it is as smooth as you like it!

SUPERLIFE GUIDE

Added tips you can choose to SuperCharge this recipe.

  1. If you like your smoothies chilled, throw in 3-6 ice cubes when blending.
  2. Instead of using powdered turmeric, you can peel one to two inches of fresh turmeric and add it to your smoothie. Just wash your hands immediately and be very intentional about handling the turmeric (even the peels!) to avoid staining anything yellow.
  3. You aren’t limited to almond milk. Try this recipe with any milk you have on hand (coconut, hazelnut, cashew, etc.).

    Made this smoothie for breakfast this morning and added 1T chia seeds and hemp seeds. It tastes amazing! I’m trying to get my husband to eat healthier and I had him try this – he loved it, and drank one himself (which is a miracle in itself). I never would have thought to use one entire teaspoon of turmeric – seems like all other recipes use it sparingly – but I can see it would have a more therapeutic effect at higher doses. Enjoyed listening to you on the Rich Roll podcast and I’m reading your book now! Mahalo!
