I love smoothies for breakfast! They offer a great mixture of carbohydrates and protein, without making you feel bloated and weighed down! I also put A LOT of spinach in my smoothies! Spinach is very bland, and when mixed with other flavors, it is virtually tasteless. This is one of the ONLY ways I can get my kids (and husband) to eat raw, leafy greens!
Below is a recipe for my “base,” I sometimes add other fruits such as bananas, blueberries, or mango. In addition, I will sometimes add milled flaxseed and chia seeds for an extra nutrient boost! However, beware of chia seeds they stick to the sides of your blender and sometimes get stuck in your toddler’s sippy cup! I buy almost ALL of the ingredients in bulk from SAM’s Club, and purchase protein powder from Amazon(I vary the type, I just stick with vegan/organic)!
- Organic/Vegan Chocolate Protein Powder(I also love Sun Warrior protein Powder-but it is a bit more expensive!)
- Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- Frozen Strawberries
chia seeds, flax seeds, kefir, probiotic powder blend, other fruits fresh or frozen
Have a wonderful week!!!
