I know how dependent we are on coffee in the morning to help keep us alert and awake, its amazing, the aroma, the taste…but i have also seen how dependent and addicting it can be.
So what can we do to replace the amazing coffee that get’s us out of bed and get’s us going. Well I would suggest trying moringa, the reason is because
- gives instant & long lasting energy with no crash
- improves focus & concentration
- boosts your metabolism & improves digestion
- balances blood sugar levels for you throughout the day
This Moringa Elixir is all that and more. I add lemon to this elixir because when digested together, the Lemon’s Vitamin C significantly boosts absorption of the Moringa’s nutrients — especially Iron. Iron is integral for energy. Its very quick to prepare, you will wonder why it took you so long to try out Moringa.
2 cups coconut water
1/2 bunch of kale
1 frozen banana
2 tsp. ginger
2 Tbsp. hemp seeds
2 Tbsp. lemon
1 Tbsp. Moringa
Pour all the ingredients into a blender and blend on high until smooth. Pour into a glass and serve.
So the cold is definitely with us and I’m sure you will be reaching out for all the hot chocolate, tea, coffee and soup. I know for many of us, this is the time we steer clear of smoothies. Well guess what, you don’t have to. You can always add foods that heat up the body like ginger and cayenne.
I know this may sound like an add combination and it’s so easy to be averse to anything that may not be sweet, but give it a try you will be as surprised as I was on how good it tastes. The smoothie is refreshing, spicy and its healthy. You will enjoy the benefits it will also offer your skin, with bromelain from pineapple, silica from cucumber and beta carotene from the spinach. Add some hydrating coconut water and cilantro that helps with detoxification. The lemon and cayenne will also assist your metabolism.
1 cup coconut water
1 baby spinach
1 cup pineapple
1/2 cup cucumber
1 Tsp. lime juice
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Some ice cubes
First, pour coconut water, spinach, pineapple, cucumber, cilantro, lime juice and cayenne and blend. Taste and add more cayenne if you desire until smooth. Pour into a glass and serve.
