Building blocks to a nourishing smoothie….
Dr. Geo and I love to make healthy smoothies in the morning because it’s a quick way to get essential nutrients in a glass, sustain your energy, and maintain a healthy body.
Instead of giving you a recipe this week I thought I’d give you the building blocks to what makes a great tasting and nutrient dense smoothie. All you have to do is mix and match from the essential categories and you’ll understand how to put together a well balanced breakfast or mid day snack. Enjoy!
Best to use organic fruits and vegetables. Plus, the Vitamix brand is the best smoothie blender in the market in my opinion (Dr. Geo).
1 cup Organic Yogurt (if tolerable)
1 serving protein powder (hemp, pea, or rice protein)
1 cup Organic Kefir (non dairy is available in some stores)
1- 1.5 cup water, coconut water, or non dairy organic milk like almond, coconut, rice, or hemp
1 cup mix of berries (blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries)
or other fruit in season
1 cup spinach, kale or swiss chard
1 T. ground flaxseeds
1 T. hemp seeds
1/2 T. organic cacao powder or nibs
Mix and match. Enjoy!
