Spicy Banana (Serves 2)
2 x cups of spinach
2 x cups of unsweetened coconut milk
3 x bananas *
1/2 a piece of fresh ginger, peeled
½ a teaspoon ground cinnamon
⅛ a teaspoon ground cardamom
1. Blend the spinach and coconut milk until smooth.
2. Add the bananas, ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom and blend again.
TIP 1: For a gut-healing superboost, swap 1 cup coconut milk for 1 cup coconut yogurt.
This recipe makes great ice pops!
TIP 2: A little ginger goes a long way, so if you’re not used to using fresh ginger, start off small and add
more as your tastebuds adjust. If you’re feeling the sniffles or a cold coming on, ginger will help kick
that cold to the curb just a bit faster.
