Pumpkin Pie Chai Smoothie

October 11, 2015

smothie recipesAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
Pumpkin is rich in beta-carotene (a pre-cursor to infection-fighting vitamin A), vitamin C and fiber. Warming spices enhance digestion and improve circulation. And a hot cup of non-sugar chai tea gives this smoothie a comforting little kick.

Ingredients

8-12 oz hot chai tea (Yogi makes a nice organic chai). Water or nut milk can be used as well.
1 cup fresh cooked or canned organic pumpkin
3 1-inch chunks of banana (you can chop these in advance and keep in the freezer)
1 1⁄2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1⁄4 tsp organic ginger (dried or fresh; dried is hotter)
1⁄4 tsp organic cinnamon
1⁄2-1 tsp organic vanilla (or to taste)

1 serving protein powder of choice (we recommend NutriBiotic’s Raw, Organic, Sprouted Brown Rice Protein OR Great Lakes Hydrolyzed Collagen)

Preparation

Combine all ingredients in your blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Adjust for desired consistency and spice level.

*You can heat the liquid portion of this in the beginning, or gently heat the whole smoothie at the end. A Vitamix will heat a smoothie to room temperature (or warmer) just by running longer. If you are using non-denatured Whey powder, make sure to heat to *just* warm as higher temps will destroy some of the whey’s beneficial components.

*If more sweetness is desired, add 1-3 drops liquid Stevia

*The no-sugar version of this smoothie leaves out the banana, and uses more cinnamon, vanilla, and stevia (if desired).

NERVE BALM IS AWESOME!!

NERVE BALM IS THE BEST PRODUCT THAT I HAVE FOUND TO WORK ON MY NEUROPATHIC PAIN AND I AM GLAD MY CHIRPRACTOR INTRODUCED TO ME THIS PRODUCT. THANK YOU.

Wonderful class

Isabella is a great teacher and inspires each of us to look at nature and our surroundings to infuse our skin with healing from our own creations. Thank you!

These liquid capsules are genius! Such an easy way to make hawthorne a daily tonic because I can easily take it with my other capsule supplements. The gel caps are easy to swallow. I've even punctured them before out of curiosity and the liquid tastes great. My grandmother started taking them as well because she doesn't like tinctures or tea based herbal remedies.. good alternative

It really works!

I was skeptical at first when I bought this for my partner because he had tried other natural deodorants and they did not have the staying power. We were both pleasantly surprised by how effective this meow meow tweet cream is! It lasts forever too because you can scoop out exactly how much you need each time!

Nervous Gut

When I'm super stressed I tend to hold it in my gut. My digestion will go out of wack during intense times in my life and this bitters blend is critical support for me. After taking a few dropperfuls I can feel the tension slowly start to release in my gut. Helpful for stress induced constipation and indigestion or lack of appetite when my nerves get the better of me.
