Morning Smoothie

We start every morning off with a smoothie.  It’s a great way to get a ton of fiber, protein, vitamins and probiotics into your system before the day really begins.  Smoothies are super transportable (don’t put them in a metal container–it tends to alter the flavor in a bad way) if you’re running late to work or delicious as a side to a plate of scrambled eggs and toast when you have time for a relaxed breakfast.

Here’s what we had in ours this morning:ImageI use yogurt, banana, almond milk and spinach as a base in pretty much every smoothie I make (unless I happen to be out of an ingredient).  I play around with adding different fruits, seeds (flax or chia), sprouts and sometimes nut butters to make smoothies a little bit different every day.

This was my first time adding carrots to a smoothie, and it actually turned out really well.  The carrots blend really well and add a little bit of sweetness without the calories.

I’d love to know what you put in your smoothies! Any cool fruits or vegetable combos I should be trying?

    Sometimes I make my morning smoothie the night before and I add oatmeal flour instead of banana to give it that smooth texture. I also use soak dates as a sweetener when I use kale or other not so sweet veggies.
    One of my favorites is a green pina colada: coconut milk or coconut water, pineapple, spinach and whey powder or flax seed flour
