Have you ever been interested in making a smoothie for breakfast, but thought it was too much work? You’re not alone! Here is my recipe, and shortcuts, to hopefully make it manageable for your morning routine.
This recipe is chocked full of some of my favorite foods! Kale and spinach are loaded with calcium, iron and beta carotene. Avocado is a healthy source of monounsaturated fats, which will help your brain to function, and keep you feeling full throughout the morning. The avocado alone provides nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients – wow! The fruit adds sweetness (which most people need in order to get the greens in), and nothing better than some ginger to kick start your day!
*Optional: some people may want a protein addition, so feel free to add a scoop of your favorite powder. Just add additional coconut water or regular water to get the desired consistency.
Blend everything together & add additional ice for a colder smoothie. This usually makes enough to fill my blender, which is about 3-4 drinks. I like to place my blender right into the refrigerator, or pre-bottle the reminder for grab and go enjoyment!
