Scale

Ingredients

 

  • 1 small Avocado
  • 1 small orange
  • 12 strips fresh ginger root, or 1 tbsp grated.
  • 12 to 15 oz almond or coconut milk (the less you use, the thicker it is)
  • 12 tbsp maple syrup (adjust to sweetness desired)
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Pinch of cardamon spice
  • 1 scoop spirulina powder (around 7- 10 grams)
  • Optional protein powder. See notes
  • Optional chia seed or topping of choice.

Instructions

 

  1. Peel your avocado and remove core. Peel orange. Place in a blender, add the grated ginger, milk, maple syrup, spices, and the spirulina last. Blend until smooth and pour into two glasses.
  2. Add a pinch of spirulina on top and a dash of coconut milk then place a fork in the middle of the cup to “swirl” together if you want that effect.
  3. Optional – For thicker smoothies add in 1 tbsp chia seed or 1 scoop protein powder. For creamier smoothies, add 2 tbsp chilled coconut milk (thick portion).

Notes

  • If you are looking for a protein/spirulina combo, we use Nutrex.
