Warm Almond Date Rejuvenation Smoothie

This smoothie is protein and fat rich so it satisfies way beyond the timeframe of your average morning porridge. Yet, it’s warm and rich so like porridge, it’s perfect for cold or rainy days.
The base of almonds and dates alone builds ojas (vital energy & immunity) which is amplified by the addition of Mamāyurveda Raw Cacao Energy mix, which contains medicinal mushrooms, ashvagandha, cacao, rhodiola and spices.
