Good mornin’ Good mornin’ to you!
Remember that super catchy song from Singing in the Rain? Remember how you don’t pop out of bed singing that song all bright eyed and chipper? Well I’m not saying this smoothie will fix that but at least you’ll start yourself on the right foot that can help lead to healthy choices for the rest of the day. Isn’t it nice to begin the day not slowed down by a sugary first meal? I think so.
It’s got all the good stuff: power greens, protein, antioxidants in the blueberries, fiber and Omega-3 in the flax, and it’s not watered down by using a frozen banana instead of ice.
A small handful of greens (kale, spinach, mustard greens etc)
Half scoop of protein powder
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 frozen banana
2 Tbs flax seed
1 cup liquid of your choice (I’ve used water, almond milk and soy milk and it doesn’t really make a difference)
Blend together, stick a straw in it and be on your way to a great day!
Note: I’ve been using my immersion blender and it works great-no splatter if you push it all the way down. Also no picture because despite the blueberries it doesn’t come out the prettiest color thanks to the greens.
