Smoothies!

Now that it is getting warmer in Bellingham my favorite thing to make in the morning (after my coffee of course) are smoothies! But I am picky about my smoothies. Fruit has a surprisingly large amount of sugar in it and I don’t like to start my morning off on a sugar high. Also I love to sneak super greens into everything for a little extra nutrient kick. So I have found these magical smoothies which have the perfect amount of fruit and still are a green powerhouse.

marys epic green smoothie (makes 2 SERVINGS)

2 handful of spinach/kale (start small and work up as you get use to the taste)

3 cups of frozen fruit (banana and strawberries are my favorite)

1/2 cup greek yogurt (make sure this is plain and with no added sugar)

1/2 cup* liquid (water, milk, almond milk or soy milk) *depending on amount of spinach and berries might need more or less

Optional:

1 Tablespoon peanut butter or almond butter

1 teaspoon cacao powder

1 T chia seeds

Juice of 1/2 a lemon

1 scoop protein powder

1 Tablespoon Gelatin

Place greens into blender and mix with liquid first then add fruit.

You can get creative and use whatever is in your kitchen. Smoothies can be a quick and delicious morning breakfast just watch the amount of fruit you put in and always try to add in some greens 🙂
