Alkaline Sugar-Free No-Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 1 c (240ml) fresh carrot juice, strained
  • 1 c (240ml) unsweetened almond milk (strained if homemade)
  • ½ tsp probiotic powder (optional, see below)
  • 1 c (180g) raw coconut meat
  • ¼ c (60g) raw almond butter
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
  • ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • pinch of ground ginger
  • pinch of Celtic sea salt optional, see below
  • 30 drops SweetLeaf English Toffee liquid stevia (or 1/2 C (43g) chopped pitted dates)
  • 1 c (125g) ice cubes

Optional Boosters:

  • 1 tbsp flax oil
  • 1 tbsp goji powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

Instructions

  1. Throw all of the ingredients into your blender (including any boosters) and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds until smooth and creamy.

  2. *Probiotic Powder - I add ½ tsp of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.

  3. *Celtic Sea Salt - I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
