Kratom has numerous benefits and can be taken in a variety of ways. Kratom tea is one of the most popular of them. You can make kratom tea by simply simmering kratom in hot water.
Yet, not all kratom tastes the same. While some vendors offer kratom powder that doesn’t have a strong taste, in most cases, kratom is not that pleasant.
So, you can also go a bit more creative and try more complex kratom tea recipes. These will help you mask the flavor and try something different.
However, these aren’t the only ways of taking kratom. You can make a variety of drinks such as smoothies with it.
Let’s take a look at a few and see how you can make your kratom experience a lot more pleasurable, varied, and delicious.
Kratom Chocolate Milk Recipe
If you love chocolate and have a sweet tooth, kratom chocolate milk can be a great option for you. Many users have reported that chocolate makes the taste of kratom less obvious.
That is because milk can neutralize the tannins in the kratom thus reducing its bitterness.
The fat in the milk makes it easier to consume kratom on an empty stomach. It also helps your body absorb kratom alkaloids better as they are fat-soluble.
Making kratom chocolate milk is relatively easy. All you need for it is:
- your dose of kratom powder,
- 1 cup milk (add a bit more if you choose to boil the milk)
- a tablespoon of cocoa powder,
- a tablespoon of sweetener (optional),
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- chocolate syrup (optional).
Feel free to swap regular milk for any non-dairy milk of your choice.
You can opt for cold or hot kratom chocolate milk. When properly done, it’ll bring out the alkaloids in the kratom powder. If you want to go for the former, simply combine all ingredients and use a blender to mix them together. You can add a few ice cubes if you’d like your kratom chocolate milk to be colder.
To make hot kratom chocolate milk:
- Pour milk into a pot and bring it to boil. Add a bit more than one cup because some will evaporate as you boil it. Make sure to keep an eye on it since milk can boil over.
- Reduce the heat until the milk simmers. Add the kratom powder and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
- Remove from heat and strain.
- Add the remaining ingredients and blend everything together.
Most kratom users prefer to add Nesquick because it tends to mix better with water. However, you can use any other cocoa powder of your preference.
Kratom and Coffee Protein Breakfast Smoothie Recipe
If you like taking kratom in the morning with or before your coffee, this could be the smoothie for you. Coffee is another kratom potentiator. Yet, be careful about measuring your kratom dose properly especially if you want to take fast strains with this smoothie.
The ingredients that you’ll need for this kratom smoothie are:
- the dose of kratom powder that you usually take,
- 1 shot espresso,
- 1 cup milk,
- 2 frozen sliced bananas,
- 1 tablespoon chocolate powder,
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter,
- chia seeds (optional).
To make this kratom smoothie, combine all ingredients (except for the chia seeds) in a blender. You can add a cube or two of ice if you’d like. Mix until the mixture is smooth. Then, pour into a glass and add the chia seeds.
If you dislike or are allergic to peanut butter, you can swap it for any other nut butter. Almond butter and cashew butter are good alternatives. You can use protein powder instead, as well.
Orange and Yogurt Protein Kratom Smoothie Recipe
This smoothie is great for breakfast or as a snack when you’re not yet ready for a full meal. Moreover, orange juice is one of the kratom potentiators. So, you’ll get an added benefit of having stronger and longer kratom effects.
Orange juice also has high vitamin C content that can strengthen your immune system.
For this smoothie you’ll need:
- your kratom dose,
- 1 cup orange juice (preferably freshly squeezed for most benefits),
- 1 cup Greek yogurt,
- a scoop of vanilla or chocolate-flavored protein powder (optional),
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon,
- 1 ripe banana
Place all ingredients in a blender and mix them until they are smooth.
Banana and Blueberry Kratom Smoothie Recipe
Blueberries are packed with nutritional benefits. Yet, they are low in calories. They are also rich in antioxidants and vitamins. Some studies show that blueberries can reduce the damage to our DNA and even slow down aging and protect us against cancer.
To make this kratom smoothie, you will need:
- kratom powder of your choice,
- 1 cup milk or Greek yogurt
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract,
- 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder (optional).
As with other kratom smoothies, mix all ingredients in a blender until everything is smooth.
Green Kratom Smoothie Recipe
Kratom is already green and very beneficial. How about adding some more green superfoods to make it even more potent? Why not, right?
Green smoothies have gained much popularity in recent years due to their high nutrient content. Especially when it comes to greens. Smoothies contain 3-5 servings of fruits and vegetables in a glass or two. This makes it easier for us to intake more vitamins and minerals.
Smoothies can also be a healthy breakfast or snack option.
So, you’ll need the following ingredients to make this kratom smoothie:
- your daily dose of kratom powder,
- 2 cups of baby spinach and/or kale,
- 2 ripe frozen bananas, cut into slices
- 1 cup pineapple,
- 1 cup mango,
- ½ lemon or lime juice,
- 1 ½ cups water,
- fresh ginger (optional).
You can swap water for pineapple juice if you prefer that. You can also easily vary the ingredients by replacing them with any other fruit or vegetable of your choice. Some options are celery, apple, as well as cucumber.
However, many advise against adding coconut water. It tastes good on its own and is very nutritious and rich in electrolytes, but may have a peculiar taste mixed together with kratom.
To make the smoothie, place spinach and water or juice into a blender and blend until you get a smooth liquid. Then, add kratom and the remaining fruit and keep blending until everything is well mixed together.
