Kratom is becoming very popular thanks to its effectiveness in treating pain, anxiety and even opiate withdrawal. But despite its properties, kratom has a negative point: its taste. For many, to say that kratom does not taste good is an understatement. Some find kratom characteristic bitterness just hideous. Also, given that kratom is mostly sold and consumed as powder, many users add it to boil water to prepare a tea, which makes kratom taste even more intense.
In this post, we will show you how to disguise kratom flavor by incorporating it into some delicious smoothies. Prepare these kratom smoothies recipes and enjoy their lovely taste while obtaining all the benefits of kratom. For all of them, you can add the amount of kratom you prefer (considering the recommended dosages. And remember that if you are using enhanced kratom products, you will need to reduce the amount).
Fruit and Yogurt Kratom Smoothies
Fruit and yogurt smoothies are probably the preferred options thanks to their nice taste and the easiness of their preparation. In these kratom smoothies recipes, we suggest you use vanilla yogurt, but you can use your favorite flavor. These smoothies are ideal for breakfast or as a “take-away”. They also make a fantastic light dinner. Also, you can “experiment” by adding other fruits or juices and try until you find your favorite kratom smoothie. And of course, yogurt smoothies are perfect to cover the flavor of kratom.
Mango and Avocado Kratom Smoothie

- ¼ cup of mango juice
- 1 tbsp. sugar (you can substitute it for sweetener or even not add it at all)

Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix them up until they puree into a smooth cream. You can also add some mango cubes or strawberries to embellish the smoothie.

Maybe you are one of those people. But enjoying a green kratom smoothie with a great taste is actually very simple: if you do not like the taste of veggies (though they can be very nice, really!) just by adding some extra ingredients (like spices or fruits) to your veggie kratom smoothie you will have a tasty drink which will turn out also very healthy!
