Elevate your Gut | Chai Tea (Green Smoothie) Recipe
Wether it’s weight-loss, immune support, or improved energy levels the Gut or GI track is at the centre of it all.
The gut plays important roles in creating essential nutrients that we can’t live without, improving function of organs, and combating pathogens, infection and disease.
Strong GI system (Gut) has been linked to numerous total body health benefits including greater immunity, lower inflammation, and decrease of metabolic diseases, cancers and neurodegeneration.
To do all these things, the body hosts trillions of micro-organisms that make up the microbiome (also known as gut flora). This unique environment of unicellular organisms is super important to overall health and needs to be balanced through proper foods or polyphenols.
2 cups Spinach leaves (pre-washed, baby spinach works great here)
1/2 tsp of Coco Powder (opt for good quality dark chocolate one)
2 tbsp of Peanut Butter (suggestion: natural variety with minimal sugar and salt)
1 tbsp of Hemp Hearts (optional)
Protein Powder (your choice we prefer Chocolate flavour)
1 cup of Ice
1 cup of water (adjust to taste)
1 cup of plant-based beverage like oat mylk (optional)
Teabags: rip open 2 teabags and use the inside contents only + extra spices from the outer plastic envelope. Discard the plastic outer envelope and silk like pouch after tea contents have been removed.
Blender Notes: we use the Vitamix, dessert setting for this but, any strong blender that can crush ice will work.
Add above ingredients into blender and mix until smooth or desired consistency. Add water in portions to get the consists you like. The above will give you a runny smoothie, which we prefer.
