One of my favorite recipes for summer is a SMOOTHIE. It is a great way to get your day started by consuming key vitamins and nutrients for good health in a quick and easy way. Smoothies are especially great for those on the go. Both moms and kids can have a super start to your day with fresh smoothie.
1 scoop of an approved Protein Energy Meal (Important-some supplements are NOT APPROVED due to high lead content or non-compliance with ingredient claims) So choose wisely
1 scoop of a safe whole food green -approved. Note – Green Vibrance has been NOT Approved by CL due to high levels of Arsenic.
½ cup plain unsweetened Greek yogurt
1 cup organic blueberries/strawberries or Raspberries. Berries are great antioxidants. I freeze my berries
1 banana – great potassium
¼ to ½ cup nut butter – I like peanut butter so I add organic/natural no sugar added PB
½ cup unsweetened almond milk or coconut almond milk – I like Silk Almond Coconut Milk
1 tbsp each of hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, (flax is great!!)
½ avocado (save the other half for lunch or dinner) or you can add a different oil
1 handful spinach (great in raw form and can’t taste it)
1 tbsp turmeric
1/2 cup ice
Add water for desired consistency
Use your own variations on this healthy start to your day.
