Sweet Green Amla Smoothie

Green Amla Smoothie

As you might know I have been eating this oat recipe for the longest time now as my first meal of the day. There is only one smoothie recipe that can replace that without causing some serious fomo (as in ”fear of missing out”). This sweet green amla smoothie is easily one of my favorite smoothie recipes ever.  This smoothie doesn’t look great, but the taste is amazing and it’s packed with so many great ingredients!

This smoothie will provide you with greens, berries, flaxseeds, matcha powder, and even some cinnamon and turmeric with black pepper. You won’t taste any of the bitter ingredients! That is what makes this recipe so amazing! Most of the time I wash my greens the night before so in the morning I only need to pop everything in my Vitamix and my smoothie is done in minutes!

You don’t have to add amla powder (dried Indian gooseberry), but I find it a great way to add even more antioxidant-rich foods in this smoothie. Dried amla fruit is commonly used in Ayurvedic herbal recipes. Amla is also the subject of hundreds of articles in the medical literature with promising results. You can find this in the form of supplement due to its many health benefits or get the powder form and add it to smoothies such as in this smoothie recipe.

The turmeric, black pepper, matcha powder and amla powder together with the greens is what makes this sweet green amla smoothie so amazing. It’s full with antioxidant-rich foods, but the taste is sweet because of the berries, banana and date.


  • 1 cup milk
  • big handful of spinach
  • big handful of kale (I use herbs if kale is not in season)
  • 2 cups of berries (blueberries or raspberries)
  • 1 tbs amla powder
  • ½-1 tsp kurkuma
  • 1 tbp ground flaxseeds
  • 12 Medjool date
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • a dash of ground black pepper
  • 2 ounces of brewed green tea or 1 tsp matcha powder


  1. Prepare the greens by washing them and add them to a powerful blender along with the other ingredients. Blend until smooth and serve.

    Um, amla is contraindicated adjunct is milk. Also, dairy milk and banana is not a sattvic combo. Amla and honey is good i think. Some people say salt as its only taste aml a doesn’t possess… But I thought you should know. I make fresh (frozen) amla smoothie with banana, mango, honey, chia. I used to put in oil or ghee, but that can cause tummy problems. I also read seeds and fruit can be hard to digest. Triphala is to be soaked in tepid water overnight, or will result in nausea. I’d suggest soaking amla powder as well if problematic. Biggest thing is drunk at room temp, not cold, as its too hard to digest. enKindle your agni…
