Winter Warmer Smoothie

I may have seen in previous posts that I am loving the concept of Bulletproof Coffee. However I am still very aware that although it is full of goodness it is still coffee. I have no problem with drinking 1 even 2 cups of coffee daily however I personally like to have my coffees as a treat when I am out with friends. I feel like I really appreciate the experience more. 

Anywhoo so I could still have all the goodness of the bulletproof I have been making the same recipe however I leave out the coffee and add in some protein. It is delicious and because it has been so cold in Melbourne lately it is the perfect Winter smoothie. 

Enjoy:

  • 1 tbsp MCT Oil
  • 1 tbsp grass fed organic Ghee butter
  • 1 tsp maca powder (great for hormones)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (because it's amazing for everything)
  • 1/2 tsp licorice root (supports the adrenal glands)
  • 1 tsp of turmeric (perfect for an anti-inflammatory)
  • pinch of black pepper (for better absorption of the turmeric)
