- Powdered kratom
- 1 frozen banana
- 5 chilled strawberries
- ½ cup of chilled blueberries
- ½ cup of cold OJ
- 1 cup of cold yoghurt
- Start with the kratom by doling out a dose’s worth into a cup. If your kratom is not a powder, you may want to use a coffee grinder to grind it down to finer particles first. Set this aside for now.
- Get the banana and chop it up into sections, then throw those into the blender.
- Get the strawberries and wash all of them thoroughly, making sure to remove the sections as well. Once that is done, chop them up into smaller pieces—thirds would be fine—and add them to the bananas in the blender.
- Get the blueberries and wash them carefully. You do not need to chop these up before adding them to the blender, but it would not hurt. Cutting them in half would be sufficient.
- Add the orange juice and the yoghurt to the blender.
- Process the ingredients, working in short pulses and using a spoon to “turn over” the mixture when necessary.
- Take the kratom powder you measured out earlier and add that to the mixture in the blender. Blend it again in pulses.
- Taste the result and add sugar or ice if desired, then enjoy.
This is a pretty delicious way of taking kratom powder—and if you get the mixture cold enough, you probably won’t even taste the powder when you down the drink later on, since your taste buds will be slightly numbed by the chill of the smoothie. The flavours of the fruit, taken together with the yoghurt (and, if you use it, the sugar) also make the experience more pleasant than a gulp of your standard kratom tea.
Take note that whenever you mix kratom in smoothies or blended drinks of this type, the finer powders are always better. Larger particles are more likely to get stuck in your throat or cause irritation when you drink them, after all. Most people also believe that finer powders are digested more quickly in the stomach, leading to faster effects.
