I’m a huge fan of blackstrap molasses for the awesome amazing benefits it offers (iron and calcium first and foremost), but I can definitely acknowledge the strong taste doesn’t suit a lot of things. Luckily, there are a few recipes it adds just perfectly to – and this would be one of them. And as a bonus, this smoothie also includes the anti-inflammatory and healing spices ginger and cinnamon.
A bit of a holiday special, but certainly can be had anytime of the year!
Makes 1 serving.
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 Tbsp hemp seeds (hemp hearts)
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1 Tbsp coconut flakes
- 1 ripe banana (or 2 medjool dates)
- 1 Tbsp blackstrap molasses
- ¼ tsp ginger spice (or grated fresh ginger)
- ¼ tsp cinnamon spice
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- 5 ice cubes
Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend on high until smooth. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon if desired. Enjoy immediately.
