Strawberries and frozen banana—again? Power out of a smoothie slump by blending new ingredients, like hemp seeds, winter squash, and dried figs, into a health-boosting beverage your taste buds will love.
This out-of-the-box infusion, from Gorilla Food: Living and Eating Organic, Vegan, and Raw, by Aaron Ash, is brimming with beta-carotene and vitamin E, two cell-protecting antioxidants. The easy orange drink also takes on a spicy sweetness thanks to cardamom, an exotic ingredient used in many Middle Eastern dishes.
