Here are some of the benefits you’re going to get from adding this particular recipe to your life.

You will need:
- 1 teaspoon Matcha powder for antioxidants and energy
- 1 teaspoon Morninga powder for a huge boost of vitamins
- 1 teaspoon Astragalus powder for immune system support
- 1 – 2 cups fresh baby greens like kale, chard, and spinach
- 1 heaping teaspoon of your favorite nut butter (I love the mixed nuts blend from Trader Joe’s)
- Half of a Persian cucumber (or a 3 inch chunk of a seedless English cucumber)
- Half of a carrot, chopped
- The juice of half of a lemon
- ½ cup frozen peach slices
- ¼ cup frozen dark cherries
- ¼ cup frozen blueberries
- 1 cup liquid (almond milk, coconut milk, tea, water, coconut water)
- Do you need sweetener? I don’t, but if you do, choose a healthy one like raw honey or coconut syrup
Blend everything up in a high-powered blender like a Ninja, Vita Mix, NutriBullet and drink in the morning several times a week.
You can customize this recipe to suit your personal needs and taste. Dislike the flavor of cherries? Fine, substitute mango or raspberries. Need more protein in your diet? Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder. Need to feel full longer? Add something rich, like ½ an avocado, a handful of walnuts, or some Greek yogurt. Make it YOUR way.
