I know, I know–I’m about a century behind on the smoothie craze. My mom, however, is one of the original pioneers of the smoothie movement. She’s been forcing them down my throat for as long as I can remember. Every single time I’m home, she makes me a healthy smoothie for breakfast (and yes, they’re actually healthy..no processed foods allowed!). I’ve never been big into breakfast on weekdays, either; I’d much rather sleep. However, sipping one down in the morning has really quelled the “hungriness” (hungry/angry) I feel by noon due to skipping breakfast.
handful of spinach
handful of kale (broken up, with stems)
handful of strawberries (fresh or frozen)
2 spoonfuls of raw almond butter
2 spoonfuls of greek yogurt
spoonful of chia seeds
1/4 (eyeballed) of filtered water
Disclaimer: I’m not really into sweets so this isn’t sugary at all–it’s more nutty than anything. I’m also not a health expert; I just know I need to eat healthier and this is a great way for me to incorporate more nutrition in my life. Here’s my ingredient list. I’m curious, if you make smoothies, what do you use?
