This warm delight features our Super Power Adaptogen Powder, a building and nourishing blend of Ashwagandha, Suma, and Maca roots. Cashews, vanilla, and antioxidant cinnamon take this slightly sweet and creamy treat over the top.
8-12 oz of water or nut milk of your choice
2-3 dates, pits removed
1/4 c cashews
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1+ tsp organic cinnamon
1+ tsp Super Power Adaptogen Powder
1 tsp organic vanilla (or to taste)
1 serving protein powder of choice (we recommend NutriBiotic’s Raw, Organic Brown Rice Protein OR Great Lakes Hydrolyzed Collagen)
Combine all ingredients in your blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Adjust for desired consistency and cinnamon 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 dates, and uses more cinnamon, vanilla, and stevia (if desired).
