I admit, I am on a creative drink thing lately!!! Don’t really know why but it is fun and why not? ūüėÄ

A couple days ago I had picked some blackberries and dew berries and still had a handful in the fridge. I thought about making something frozen and delicious!

purple smoothie

Isn’t it beautiful?

It started with just the blackberries and almond milk and ice but then in went the vanilla protein powder(low sugar kind), a bit of gluccie and then I remembered the adaptogenic herb mix!!!

Let me explain some of those ingredients first before you think I went off the deep end, gluccie WHAT!?!? Trim Healthy Mama term for:

Glucomannan

Рa dietary fiber made from the Konjac Root which helps as an appetite suppressant and weight management.

As for the  adaptogenic herb mix, I got that recipe from Andrea at Frugally Sustainable and I will share it with you too.

Adaptogenic Herbal Smoothie Mix

Ingredients

-2 parts Eleuthero powder
-1 part Tulsi powder
-1 part Maca powder
-1 part Ashwagandha powder
-1/2 part Tumeric root powder

***You can find all of these herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs. 

Method

1. Simply measure and mix all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined.

2. Transfer to a glass mason jar and store in a cool, dark place.

3. To use…take 1 teaspoon of the powder daily. It’s super yummy in smoothies, nut milks with a touch of honey, or mixed into your favorite foods

While this supplement is good for all of us…seriously consider taking this powder daily if you experience: chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, decreased libido, or adrenal insufficiency. From Andrea РFS.
