It is important to start your day of with the right nutrition, and sometimes I just don’t feel like eating a big meal first thing in the morning. So, some days, I make a delicious smoothie to get me through the first half of the day and to jump-start my metabolism. Below is my current favorite recipe with links to the brands I use. This recipe is dairy-free, gluten-free and is packed with vitamins, protein and healthy fats…did I mention it was delicious?!
1 organic banana
3-4 Frozen Organic Strawberries
1 Small handful of Frozen Organic Blueberries
1-2 Leaves of Dino Kale
1 Heaping spoonful of Raw Organic Almond Butter
1 Spoonful of Raw Organic Coconut Oil
Homemade Organic Almond Milk (enough to fill the cup about 3/4 of my 20 oz vitamix cup. Add more or less depending on your consistency preference)
5 Drops of Vitamin D3 (5000 IU total)
Two droppers full of Liquid Vitamin B Complex
1 tsp Vitamin C Powder
1-2 tbls Protein Powder
Put all ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
