Ingredients:

1/3-1/4 cup of granola (granola is a short cut so its great for when you’re pressed for time, however if you have the time and ingredients you can improvise by adding oats, almonds, pumkin seeds, and pure cane sugar.  Hopefully i’ll have time to post my granola recipe in the near future)

1 cup of Blueberries.

4 bananas (the amount of bananas you use will vary and depends on the amount of servings you’re making, I use one banana for each serving)

Rice milk or Almond milk (this amount also depends on how many ppl you plan to serve, I normally add 10 ounces per person)

2 cups of spinach or broccoli.

Now the spice 😁

In this recipe we use 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp of nutmeg and 1 tsp of all spice.  (You can add more to taste)

Place all ingredients in your ninja/bullet or whichever blender you use, and blend baby blend.  And voila!

Also when putting together recipes I shared on a previous #360Natural post that I like to research the ingredients that are being used.  It’s common knowledge that the foods that we out into our bodies will either help us or hinder us, so when preparing food I often think how will this support my health.  Below you’ll find some amazing facts about the spices that are used in this smoothie.

All Spice also know as Jamaica Pepper or Pimento

  • Mood enhancer
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Eliminates fungal infection
  • Lowers Blood Pressure
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Protects the gastrointestinal system
  • Increases circulation
  • Acts as a pain reliever

Nutmeg

  • Boosts skin health
  • Detoxifies the body
  • Soothes indigestion
  • Strengthens cognitive function
  • Alleviates oral conditions
  • Increases immune function
  • Relieves pain
  • Improves circulation

Cinnamon

  • Improves digestion
  • Increases brain function, helps to focus
  • Protects against fungal infections
  • Boosts the immune system

We got these fun facts are from organicfacts.net.  And as with all things we didn’t just get information from this one source but we cross referenced it with other nutrition data.  

Hippocrates who is said to be the father of western medicine said “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.” When we look at these facts about spices that are used in many of our everyday meals we can see that this is true.  For example, all three spices boost the immune system, and two out of three are uses to alleviate pain.  Many of us have pharmacies in our kitchen cabinets and don’t even know it.  I encourage you to research the ingredients that you use.  You’ll learn alot about the foods that you’re putting in your body, but more inportantly you’ll find out if your foods are helping or hindering you.  More on that at another time.
Til next day,

Peace and Blessings,

Empress Li.
