Root Chakra Smoothie

Is your root chakra spinning to slow? Too fast? Are you hips feeling a little bit tight? Or are you experiencing a little bit of increased self doubt? Time to do some grounding activities and maybe try this bright red smoothie! Beets from the earth give it a nice base. Berries make it sweet and brighten the flavor. Some greens thrown in for some nourishing nutrition and seeds to help you feel satisfied. So go get your Muladhara on…

Root Chakra Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 heaping cup of mixed frozen berries (I like strawberries, cherries, and blackberries)
  • 1/2 of a small beet (about 1/3 cup) raw with skin on- washed and scrubbed
  • 1 banana (frozen preferable)
  • small handful of basil- about 10 leaves
  • 10 ml water- about 1 1/4 cups (or coconut water)
  • 1 tablespoon hemp hearts
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 large leaves of kale (Ilike to use red kale to keep with the theme)
  • optional- 1/4 cup applesauce or 1/2 an apple

Place everything in a blender and process until smooth. it might take a while for the beets to incorporate, but have patience.
