Kratom Smoothies

Kratom is a tree of the coffee plant family that grows in Southeast Asia. It has been used for centuries by the locals to make a herbal remedy that acts as a stimulant to start the day or a sedative to wind down in the evenings. This is due to its alkaloids, mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, which interact with the opioid receptors in the brain to cause the desired effects. The vein and strain of Kratom determine these alkaloid properties.

Some people, however, don’t enjoy the leafy, bitter taste of Kratom. This bitterness is due to the alkaloid content, meaning that the more alkaloids the leaf has, the more bitter it will taste. If you struggle with the taste of Kratom, there are various ways to mask it or consume it to make it more palatable, such as in a tea

In this article, we’ll look at ways of mixing Kratom into smoothies that have great health benefits themselves and a more pleasant taste. 

How to make a Kratom smoothie 

Smoothies are a good way to start the day with the vitamins and minerals your body needs. Adding Kratom to your smoothies has the added benefit of giving you energy and focus boost, much like a strong cup of coffee. 

Here are three Kratom smoothies to suit different tastes: 

  • Green smoothie
  • Chocolate nut butter smoothie
  • Tropical fruit smoothie

Ingredients for green smoothie: 

  • A leafy green base of choice, such as kale, spinach, or arugula 
  • Kratom powder of choice (serving size depends on the individual—see dosage guide below)
  • 1 banana 
  • ½ avocado, cubed
  • 1 cup orange juice or water
  • Ice to keep it cold, as blenders tend to heat the liquid slightly 

Ingredients for chocolate nut butter smoothie: 

  • A leafy green base of choice, such as kale, spinach, or arugula 
  • Kratom powder of choice (serving size depends on the individual—see dosage guide below)
  • A fruit of choice, such as 1 banana / ½ cup blueberries / ½ cup strawberries
  • 1 cup milk of choice, such as cow/almond/soy/cashew/coconut
  • 1 tablespoon nut butter of choice, such as peanut/almond/cashew/hazelnut
  • 1½ tablespoons cacao
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • Ice to keep it cold, as blenders tend to heat the liquid slightly 

Ingredients for tropical fruit smoothie: 

  • A leafy green base of choice, such as kale, spinach, or arugula 
  • Kratom powder of choice (serving size depends on the individual—see dosage guide below)
  • 1 cup fruit cubes of choice, such as mango/kiwi/pineapple/papaya/banana
  • 1 cup orange/pineapple juice 
  • ½ cup yogurt (optional)
  • Ice to keep it cold, as blenders tend to heat the liquid slightly 

Method for all: 

  • Place all ingredients in a blender, starting with the leafy greens and following the ingredients down the list. 
  • Blend for 40 seconds, swirl the blender around a bit, and then blend for another 30 seconds. 

Note: If it’s too thick, you can add a little water until you get to the desired consistency.
You can also add honey or a sweetener of choice, such as stevia, if you prefer smoothies on the sweeter side. 

Dosage guide

For the above recipes, the portions are based on one person. You can double the recipes for more than one person. 

In terms of Kratom dosage, you would dose as you usually do when you take Kratom. If you’re new to Kratom, we recommend starting with a low dosage and increasing it gradually. 

  • Microdose: less than 2 g—take for a mildly stimulating effect in place of your morning cup of coffee.
  • Low to medium dose: 2-6 g—take for a stimulating, energizing, or euphoric effect.
  • High dose: over 6 g—take for pain relief and a calming and sedative effect.
  • Heavy dose: over 8 g—take for pain relief and a calming and sedative effect. This is too strong for most people.

A rough guide to measuring your dose is 1 rounded teaspoon = 2.5-3.5 g and 1 rounded tablespoon = 6-8 g. Or you could use a scale for accuracy.
