| Well, if you know me, you know that I start every morning with a smoothie! I love that time to get in a great serving of fruits and vegetables! I also make a REALLY large batch. I put my Sunday batch into plastic cups and straight to the freezer. Every morning around 6:30, I pull a smoothie out of the freezer and take it with me to school. Then around 8:00 I eat it at my desk! I never actually measure what I put in, but here are some approximates! 🙂 I start by putting everything into my Vitamix.
Yes, they are expensive. But, yes, they are completely worth it. My Vitamix is over 15 years old and it won’t die! I mean, secretly, I would like it to die because I would love more options than my old Vitamix has! But, no! It won’t quit! And also, their customer service is wonderful! Here are the ingredients I use. Because I make a smoothie for the whole week, this recipe will make a large portion big enough to serve 5-6 smoothies. Start by blending these ingredients:
20 ounces of Almond Milk (any milk is fine)
Big handful of spinach or kale
1/2 cup of Coconut oil (Optional)
3 scoops of protein powder (I use Beachbody’s Vanilla Vegan)
After the above ingredients are smooth, add the frozen fruit. I use:
2 Frozen Bananas
1/2 cup or so of Frozen Blueberries
1/2 cup or so of Frozen Strawberries
Another fruit option:
2 Frozen Bananas
1/2 cup or so of Frozen Mango
1/2 cup or so of Frozen Peaches
Blend and enjoy! Start your morning off right! Now, don’t stop following me after you read this! 😉 But…. I don’t like chocolate! I know, I know! It’s crazy! But my family does! So sometimes after I get my smoothie scooped out, I will add a couple tablespoons of Cocoa Powder. My kids think they are drinking a chocolate milkshake! MOM WIN!
