I dare you to swap your morning coffee and pastries for green smoothies for one week. I know it may sound scary, but I have been amazed at how much more energized I feel having a green smoothie as my drink of choice for breakfast. Depending on what you add (ex: nut butter or protein powder), it can also be a meal replacement. Starting my day with this delicious blend of fruits, veggies, and protein leaves me feeling refreshed, healthy, and balanced instead of jittery and starving by 10 am. I hope you enjoy the recipe and I encourage you to swap out ingredients to find your own personal favorite combo!
Sarah’s Go-To Green Smoothie Recipe:
1.5 cups of Coconut Water (I’m loving Central Market’s Brand or Vita Coco)
1 cup of rinsed Kale leaves or Spinach
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen mango
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 dash of cinnamon
Blend on High and Enjoy! Note this will taste best if you have a high powered blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec.
