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 tbp ground flaxseeds
- 1–2 Medjool date

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