Smoothies are an excellent way to obtain important nutrients. With busy schedules sometimes is hard to get all that goodness each day. Be sure to always add greens and protein to your smoothies to insure that it is a well balanced meal.
Blueberry Banana Smoothie
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
1-3 cups of fresh spinach (depending on preference)
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp nut/seed butter
1 1/2 cup cold liquid (water, milk, almond/soy milk)
1 serving plant based protein powder
1/2 grated medium beet
Sub kale for spinach
Blend until smooth. Some blenders may take longer.
Quick tip for busy lives:
Once a week, pre portion smoothies into individual reusable bags or containers, without the liquid and freeze. In the morning, simply add ingredients into blender, add liquid and enjoy your quick morning smoothie.
