Have no fear, you don't have to put your blender away as the temperature decreases this Fall! I am of the belief that smoothies can be enjoyed all year long, especially if you hold the ice cubes and incorporate the use of warming spices like cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and turmeric during the cool/cold months.
This smoothie is perfectly balanced with spicy and sweet flavors, with healthy fats (coconut, avocado, almond butter), protein (collagen, hemp and flax seeds), natural sweetener (banana, date), alkalizing greens (spinach), and warming spices (cinnamon, cardamom, ginger). Blend it up, and go enjoy the beautiful Fall scenery all around you.
