Made with dried fruits, nuts and seeds, and a bold combination of super-ingredients such as reishi, maca and cordyceps (a type of mushroom), this smoothie is perfect for starting your day after a soothing bone broth, reviving a post-workout body or healthily replacing a meal. 

Ingredients:

• 1 dandelion tea bag
• 2 cups almond milk
• 1⁄2 cup organic coconut milk
• 7 teaspoons agave
• 1⁄2 cup walnuts
• 3 whole dried apricots

• 5 whole Brazil nuts (note: chop before adding for easier blending)

• 1 teaspoon reishi powder
• 1 teaspoon cordyceps powder
• Sea salt, to taste
