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.
