Pumped Green Tea Smoothie

 

Get energized and pump up your immune system with this green tea smoothie recipe!

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

  • You’re going to get a wide spectrum of antioxidants which are essential for achieving and maintaining radiant health. Get your antioxidants from your diet rather than supplementation.
  • You’re getting the equivalent of an IV shot of Vitamin C and beta carotene to kick up your immune system and strengthen your vision, heart, and skin.
  • Astragalus is all about building your immune system so that your body is more resistant to the viruses that cause the common cold and flu.
  • You will definitely experience more energy.
  • This recipe is low in calories but very high in nutrition. It’s naturally cleansing and slimming, and a perfect addition to any weight management and fitness routine.

 

Green tea smoothie

 

You will need:

  • 1 teaspoon Matcha powder for antioxidants and energy
  • 1 teaspoon Moringa 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. 

Stay pumped,
Kita

Who likes getting their buttons pushed? No? Neither do I. I hate it. But... it’s inevitable. Unless we take a vow of silence and go live in a cave in the wilds of Tibet, we’re going to run into sticky situations with the people in our lives. I would personally rather deal with conflict like an adult than fly off the handle every time someone moves my cheese.

Tea Secrets: The Magic Of Mint Tea

September 13, 2019 2 Comments

I often get asked what my all time favorite herb tea is. If I had to pick just one (which is totally not fair, but hypothetically speaking…) it would be peppermint. I developed my love for peppermint tea in 1993 when I was pregnant with my daughter Anna. I craved hot peppermint tea and drank it nearly every day. When I went to herb school a few years later, I learned that peppermint has remarkable benefits that most people don’t even know about...
