Breakfast Smoothies

I like for one of my meals—usually breakfast—to be a smoothie made with veggies and fruit. I also add one superfood powder: 1 ounce of one of the following–spirulina powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, wheatgrass powder, or a vegan protein powder.

First, choose 4—6 ounces of some good dense, fibrous ingredients—

  • Leafy greens of any kind
  • Roots/Tubers of any kind

Add 4—6 ounces of high-volume watery ingredients, like—

  • Apple
  • Tomato
  • Celery
  • Cucumber

Add 4—6 ounces of flavor—

  • Berries or tropical fruits

Add 1 ounce of add-ons—

  • Coconut Oil – a small dollop makes a big difference
  • Vegan protein powder
  • Almond Milk
  • Cinnamon
  • Unsweetened organic cocoa powder
  • Ginger Root – 1/2″ chunk
  • Lemon/Lime Juice – for a touch of citrus
  • Nuts, if their calories fit within your personal macros

Note—doublecheck the calories! Keep close to 200 calories, less than 300.

I pre-chop any tough veggies or fruits like apples or beets…
