Breakfast Smoothie

Green smoothies…I love having them for breakfast, the greener, the better :) It’s a healthy, quick and absolutely delicious option.

Spinach and kale are my favorite bases for green smoothies. I love experimenting with adding a bunch of different fruit to create new flavors. Today I used spinach as a base and added some bananas and pineapple for a sweet and smooth taste for my green smoothie. Spinach is packed with vitamins A,K, E and D, antioxidants and is a great source of iron- a mineral that is especially important for us, girls. Pineapple has many anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits, it’s an excellent source of vitamin C, A and Beta-Carotenne.

Green Breakfast Smoothie

1 banana
1.5 cups of fresh spinach
1 cup of fresh pineapple
1 tsp of chia seeds
3-5 ice cubes
splash of filtered water or unsweetened almond milk

Blend all of the ingredients together until smooth. If your smoothie ends up being too thick, simply add more water or almond milk.
