Superfood Power Smoothie with Navitas Naturals

Last week I ordered a number of Navitas Naturals products and decided to experiment with a Superfood Smoothie. The following is what I was able to come up with and has become a favorite for us. Here it is in a nutshell:

In a blender add:

1 cup almond milk (we use Blue Diamond)
Blue Diamond Almond Breeze

2 cups warm drinking water (around 80 F is fine)

1 tsp Navitas Naturals Goji Powder

2 eye droppers Omica Organic Liquid Stevia (with vanilla)

1 tbsp (local) raw honey

1 pinch of ground turmeric powder

Blend all ingredients for about 1 minute.

The reason why I use warm water for this is so that the honey would dissolve better (note that the raw honey should not go over 110 F or else you’ll kill the enzymes that make it so good for you). Well, it’s like drinking a hot chocolate that’s cooled off quite a bit. So, if that’s not your favorite way of drinking a chocolate smoothie, other alternatives that we’ve tried is to simply add a few ice cubes and then blending it again, which makes a tasty cold chocolate drink, or dissolving the honey in the warm water beforehand and then having it cool down in the fridge before making the smoothie.
