Notes

The caloric value was calculated per serving.
As Triphala has sweet, sour, astringent, and bitter qualities, can be added to this smoothie to balance all doshas.
Extra benefits:
• healthy skin and eyes;
• promotes longevity;
• rejuvenation of the digestive tract.
More reasons why you should use Triphala regularly are listed here and try the Tridosha-balancing-smoothie.
Recommendations for doshas:
Vata: is a good recipe for an afternoon snack. Carob is a great alternative to cocoa powder. It does not overstimulate the nervous system and provides extra calcium and a natural chocolate taste. Avoid drinking it cold.
Pitta: Cherries have heating qualities which can increase pitta. Replace them with strawberries, for example.
Kapha: Without bananas and dates is a good smoothie for Kapha. Use cacao powder instead of carob. Cacao has heating and bitter qualities, which are beneficial for a kapha type.
