Every now and then we need a little something to transport us to a tropical climate. If you’re inclined to indulge in a sickly sweet piña colada or strawberry daiquiri to take you there, you’re bound to leave your body a little worse for the wear.
I love this green smoothie because it can take you to those sandy beaches whilst keeping you grounded and energized for your work day.
Here’s how to make it:
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 scoop of Ora’s Way Better Than Whey protein powder
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp ginger
- 1 organic banana
- 1 handful of organic spinach
- 1 ½ tbsp organic coconut manna
Put all ingredients into a blender.
Blend on high until smooth!
Besides the high concentration of superfoods in Ora’s protein powder, the star of this smoothie is the coconut manna. Also known as coconut butter, it’s simply pureed coconut meat. It has more substance and flavor than coconut oil alone, but it still has the same healthy fat profile. That means with the balance of fat, protein and carbs, your body will stay satiated longer while burning clean energy.
Coconut is also antimicrobial, antibacterial and antifungal, helping to boost your immune support.
Sip through a straw and top with an umbrella for extra therapeutic benefits!
