5 Favorite Smoothies
I'm sure you've heard me talk about my favorite nutrient-packed super smoothies, but they really are my go-to morning meal (and for good reason!). They're filling, they're blood sugar balancing for balanced energy, mood, hunger and cravings- and they're delicious and portable, to boot. Today I want to share five of my favorite simple and delicious combinations, with you!
Favorite Super Smoothie #1: The PB&J
Who doesn't like a good PB + J? This is my daughter's go-to, as well! PB + J Super Smoothie
1 cup milk of choice 1 handful spinach 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries 1 scoop vanilla protein powder 1-2 tbsp natural peanut butter
Favorite Super Smoothie #2: Chocolate Covered Cherry
This is my go-to all summer long! There is something just so refreshing about sweet cherries in the summer time. I like to get fresh and freeze- but let's be mama real, I usually use pre-frozen! Chocolate-covered Cherry Super Smoothie 1 cup milk of choice 1 large handful spinach 1/2 cup frozen cherries 1 scoop chocolate protein powder 1 tbsp cocoa or raw cacao powder 1 tbsp almond or cashew butter
Favorite Super Smoothie #3: Strawberry Coconut
This one really should be called strawberries n' cream-- but the coconut itself lends a nice flavor, on top of a really nice creaminess. Strawberry Coconut Super Smoothie 1 cup full-fat coconut milk 1 handful spinach 3/4 cup frozen strawberries 1 tbsp chia seeds
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
Favorite Super Smoothie #4: Blueberry Muffin This one is my GO-TO! I seem to make this one over and over again. It works well to keep my blood sugar stable for HOURS on end! No more #hangry mama!
Blueberry Muffin Super Smoothie
1/2-1 cup almond milk 1 handful kale or spinach 1/2 cup frozen blueberries 1 scoop vanilla protein powder 1-2 tbsp almond butter 2 tbsp ground flax or chia seeds big dash cinnamon
Favorite Super Smoothie #5: Mint Chocolate Chip (nice cream) This one is decadent, with the option of being entirely fruit-free! The frozen cauliflower makes it nice and thick- like ice cream! Mint Chocolate Chip Nice Cream 1/2 cup almond milk 1/2 cup frozen cauliflower 1/2 frozen banana (optional) 1 large handful spinach 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp coconut butter big handful of fresh mint, 1-2 drops food grade peppermint essential oil OR dash peppermint extract honey or stevia to sweeten cacao nibs to top (I like to throw a few in for texture, too!)
