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
3 scoops of protein powder (My favorite is Dr. Mercola’s Vanilla)
3-4 tablespoons of Agave or Honey (more or less depending on your taste)
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
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!
