Makes 4 Cups
1 C coconut milk
1/2 C kefir
3/4 C water
2 T freshly squeezed orange juice
2 C frozen mango, papaya and/or pineapple
1-2 bananas (I freeze mine for smoothies.)
1 T coconut oil
1 T maple syrup
1 t chia seeds
1/2 t ground turmeric*
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t ground ginger**
(If you used fresh fruit, be sure to add 6 ice cubes for a creamy, smooth texture.)
1. Place all ingredients in a high speed blender, or vitamix if you have one, and blend on high until it’s creamy and inviting.
2. Enjoy right away!
*I’ve never used fresh turmeric even though it’s easy to find here. If you give it a go with fresh turmeric, let me know how it goes!
**For an even spicier kick, use 1 t freshly grated ginger instead of ground ginger.
