Matcha immuni-tea smoothie for fall!

I have not been drinking very many smoothies since the weather has gotten colder here in the northwest. Mainly because when I am cold I crave warm foods. But also, too many smoothies can harm your digestion especially if they are cold!  Our digestion is like a fire and it “burns”/processes and distributes the nutrients. If we cool out the fire we are left with a sluggish system with nutrients not being processed well which will eventually lead to deficiencies. I refuse to give up my smoothies, so to counteract  this I drink them at room temperature and with lots of warming spices like fresh ginger, cinnamon etc.  I also try to drink my smoothies with hot tea or soup for maximum digestibility. This one is a great one to help protect against winter colds and the flu. In Chinese medicine cinnamon and ginger help release the exterior which means it helps to keep out invading viruses and sicknesses.

 

Matcha immuni-tea smoothie:
2 peaches
1 orange peeled
1/2 lemon with peel
1/2 cup orange juice
1 1/2 cups non dairy milk
1 cup raw broccoli
1” fresh ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon matcha tea powder
1 tablespoon spirulina
1 teaspoon turmeric
optional: 1 packet of emergen-C
optional: 10 drops grapefruit seed extract
3 packets of stevia
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon flax oil
*I topped it with chia seeds, goji berries, turmeric and a small piece of broccoli.

  1. I live in Singapore and it’s hot and humid. So I do crave for a cold smoothie everyday lol… But when I’m in somewhere cold, I try to add ginger to my smoothie to warm things up abit 😀
