Smoothie Time

I was advised against this post this morning on the grounds that many of you may think I am weird. Well that is ok, because I am. For those of you that are into smoothies, and adventurous with adding greens to them, I want to share my favorite breakfast smoothie recipe. Smoothies are a great way to start your day as they allow the body to continue the cleansing work it has done overnight because you do not need to digest solid food. Additionally, they are creamy and cool and delicious, especially in the upcoming summer months. A last plus is they are portable for those of you that need to eat on the run. This smoothie is packed with vegetable protein, fiber, calcium, antioxidants, potassium, and about 4 servings of fruits and veggies. Right out of the gate you have gotten many of your greens for the day. I swear it doesn’t taste like you would imagine as the combo of the frozen banana, peanut butter, almond milk and vanilla protein powder are a creamy cover up for the veggies.Using frozen veggies or  fruits is a great time saver. I make mine in my VitaMix blender, which I worship in a serious way. In a normal blender you might have to use a spoon halfway through to press the ingredients back down halfway through.

1 Large Frozen Banana

1-2 Handfuls Baby Spinach

1/2 Cup Frozen Peas

1/2 Cup Frozen Broccoli

1 Tbsp Peanut Butter

1 Tbsp Chia Seeds

1 Cup Almond Milk

1/2 Scoop Jay Robb Vanilla Protein Powder

1/2 Cup Ice
