Golden Milk Smoothie

Author: Karen Porter, RHN

For almost 30 years Karen battled severe IBS, & anxiety.

Forced to re-evaluate and take her health into her own hands, she started looking into alternative methods to help her heal where the traditional medical approach had failed. 

Karen’s health, and consequently her life, entirely shifted and she felt compelled to help as many women as possible to feel their absolute best!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 1


  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2 banana
  • 3 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp cacao butter (or coconut butter/manna)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 knob fresh ginger (approx 1 tbsp)
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 1/4 cup coconut milk (or to desired consistency)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 medjool date, pitted
  • 1 scoop plant-based protein powder, vanilla
  • 3 ice cubes


  1. Put all ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth (approx. 30-40 seconds). Top with cinnamon, shredded coconut, hemp seeds.

    Note: The smoothie is golden in colour if you don't use the spinach, but I like the extra fibre, vitamins and minerals! Therefore, it ends up green. 🙂
