Chocolate Almond Smoothie with Ashwagandha and Cauliflower

Rich, creamy, and bursting with nutrients, this Chocolate Almond Smoothie gets extra thickness from a secret ingredient–frozen cauliflower! Brimming with fiber, vitamins, and other beneficial plant compounds, mild, hydrating cauliflower lends extra wholesomeness and enhanced texture without noticeably contributing to calories or taste. Mix in antioxidant-loaded fresh spinach, protein-packed almond butter, and our ORGANIC INDIA Ashwagandha, and this is one delectable powerhouse or refreshment.

Sometimes referred to as “Indian Ginseng” or “Winter Cherry”, traditional herb Ashwagandha has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine as a natural source of energy and vitality. Today, an increasing body of modern research clinically backs this potent adaptogen for its ability to help balance stress response, supporting the body and mind in healthy response to physical, mental and environmental stress. Other notable benefits include cognition support, increased stamina, restful sleep, and more.

With summer heat and a flurry of bright activity upon us, a recipe that combines refreshing calm with energizing vitality is exactly what the season calls for. Best of all, it comes with delicious satisfaction–a fudgsicle in a cup. Enjoy!
