Easy Morning Smoothie Recipe

Smoothies are one of the easiest ways to get in more fruits and vegetables to  your day.  One of the smoothies my husband likes to make has the following ingredients:

  • 2 banana (frozen)
  • A handful of kale
  • 1 apple
  • 1 carrot
  • walnuts or almonds or almond butter (1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 cup of raw beets (add more to taste)
  • A handful of Frozen blueberries/mixed berries
  • 2 scoops of Hemp Protein or Pea Protein (Trader Joe’s has it in stock)
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk/Almond Milk/Rice Milk/ Hemp Milk (any of these will work, just not cows milk)
  • Fill water to top of mixture (not to the top of blender)

We use a Vitamix, but any blender should work.  You can always add ice or put in fridge for it to cool more. This mixture make 4-5 8 ounce glasses of smoothie, which lasts us about 2 mornings.
