Via Yoga Journal – Lemon-Berry Smoothie.

Although fruity, this light, fresh and easy breakfast won’t spike blood sugar. Berries and pomegranates are amongst the best fruits for kapha, due in part to their low glycemic index and their slightly astringent taste. The added lemon and cayenne pepper help flush the lymphatic system, aid circulation, and add a significant “oomph” to the power of this morning drink. If you can’t get fresh berries, use frozen. Thaw frozen berries before using.

ingredients

1 C organic strawberries, raspberries or pomegranate seeds
1 C water
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp fresh lemon zest
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
Dash cayenne pepper, optional
6 drops liquid stevia, optional

directions

Put all of the ingredients, save the stevia, into a blender. Process until smooth and pour into a glass. Add stevia to taste.
