I love a smoothie for breakfast. It is such an easy and delicious way to start the day with nutrient dense ingredients. In order for a smoothie to be filling enough for a meal, it must include fat and protein. Below is my go-to formula for a smoothie meal!
I am very impressed with Your Super superfoods. This brand third party tests their superfoods. Superfoods, to me, are foods that are very nutrient dense. Your Super mixtures are such an easy way to add superfoods to our smoothies and load ourselves with a variety of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
This is my favorite green smoothie recipe. This is an awesome breakfast on the go. For a lighter smoothie, you can omit the nuts, seeds and collagen peptides. I have improved on the original recipe by adding lemon.
For a green smoothie (or juice) novice, I would recommend staring with 1 handful of greens and 1 1/2 cup of pineapple or mango. If you are a green smoothie aficionado, use 3 handfuls of greens and 3/4 cup of pineapple or mango. Either way, you are sure to get a nice servings of greens.
Makes 2 meals or 4 snacks:
2 cups water
1/4 cup coconut water or water
3/4 cup- 1 1/2 cups, if you want this smoothie sweeter) frozen mango or pineapple
1-3 handfuls of leafy greens (I like to mix up my greens: spinach, kale, arugula, lettuce, spring greens)
