Smoothies make mi-so happy.
I love smoothies — healthy or unhealthy, I love them all. I always have frozen berries, avocadoes, bananas, mangoes, ice cream, etc. in my freezer waiting to be blended into a delicious smoothie. Sometimes I make healthy choices by making a protein or fruit smoothie or I go to the extreme by making an ice cream milk shake. The healthy choices are usually made in the morning and the unhealthy choices in the evening.
Since we have yoga training in the morning, I’ve been going to classes with an empty stomach because I have no idea if I’ll have to do kapalabhati or asanas. And most of the time when I have cycling classes in the evening, I come home by 9pm devastatingly hungry that I feel like the calories are burning from my bone marrow. I want to eat a meal, but if I eat solid food, I might torture myself the next morning. Therefore, the go-to solution was to have a smoothie.
Since we’ve learnt about the three gunas (sattvic, rajasic, and tamasic). I’ve tried making a delicious smoothie with a sattvic effect that also satisfies my evening sugar cravings. Recipe below!
The Mi-So Sattvic Smoothie
- Coconut Milk – one and a half (1 1/2) cup
- Water – half (1/2) cup
- Avocado – half (1/2)
- Banana – half (1/2)
- Baby Spinach – one (1) handful
- Dates – two (2) pitted
- Turmeric Powder – two (2) pinches
- Cinnamon Powder – one (1) pinch
- Just put them altogether in a blender and blend till smooth.
Namaste & Enjoy
