Super Blackberry Smoothie
Serves 2

Herbalist Karta Purkh Singh Khalsa, author of The Way of Ayurvedic Herbs (Lotus Press, 2009), says that one daily serving of dark fruits or berries will usually fulfill your antioxidant needs. For a little extra immune power, add a teaspoon per serving of a powdered adaptogenic herb such as eleuthero, schisandra or ashwaganda. Adaptogens (also known as tonics) are gentle herbs that, taken long-term, help the body adapt to stress and fight off illness.

2 cups milk, soymilk or almond milk
1 frozen banana, sliced
1 1/2 cups blackberries, fresh or frozen
2 teaspoons powdered eleuthero, schisandra or ashwaganda*
*Herb stores carry these in bulk, or open capsules from the health-food store. To order online, go to www.mountainroseherbs.com.

1. Process all ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy.

2. Pour into glasses and enjoy.
