Calming Green Protein Smoothie

If you’re looking for a “go to” smoothie to make every morning – this is it! This smoothie is high in plant based protein and fiber and also contains calming turmeric. The cardamom adds delicious and fragrant flavor while the ginger adds a little kick. You can sneak in a serving of spinach as well as 18 grams of protein with this delicious smoothie. It’s filling and won’t make you crash later because there’s no refined sugar in it. I use protein powder from Livwell Nutrition because it’s plant based and raw. I like to have non-soy protein options and prefer this protein powder because it’s soy free and minimally processed. I’m also a fan of Vega protein powder which is easily found at stores like Whole Foods and Target. LivWell Nutrition protein powder can be found here – you can use the code “EPICUREAN” to get a 10% discount.

  1. Oh I love cardamom! I haven’t tried that in one of my smoothies before, strangely. I bake with it all the time though! It’s by far my most FAVORITE spice!
