Living Tree Smoothie Spectacular

One of my favorite online stores, Living Tree Community sent me a lovely sample pack of their vibrant living butters. Yesteday, although it's really easy, I wasn't in the mood to cut open a coconut, and opted to create a spectacular blend of these delicious ingredients without having to make a nut milk or coconut milk base. I have to say, everything from this store vibrates with LOVE...and this smoothie, was indeed SPECTACULAR. Turmeric Butter, Mesquite, Maca and extracts are always optional, but take some time to read about them. The added flavors are great, but they are also super nutritious!  I suggest you try some of these products...but if you don't have them available, improvise with almond butter, or any combination of nut butters that seem to go well together. This is one of my quick and easy smoothies..sort of a "cheater" smoothie..making nut milk using butters and straining, no mess.

2 frozen bananas
4 cups water
1 Tablespoon Black Sesame Tahini butter
1 Tablespoon cashew butter
 ½  Tablespoon macadamia nut butter
1 Tablespoon Golden Turmeric Butter
1 Tablespoon almond butter
4 Tablespoons chia seeds
4 kale leaves (or your favorite green)
2 medjool dates
2 Tablespoons cacao  or carob powder
1½  teaspoons mesquite powder
2 teaspoons maca powder (I alternate between gelatinized and raw..raw can upset sensitive tummies)
Ice cubes
Flavor extracts - I like 5 drops Medicine Flower Coffee extract and 2 drops Medicine Flower Almond extract ( organic and cold- extracted)


Blend water and bananas.
Continue to blend and add remaining ingredients. Adjust sweetness with dates or grade B maple syrup.

This smoothie is chock full of goodness!!!
