Healthy Smoothie Recipe

 

Why must weekends seem to fly by so quickly?

Every Monday, I wish for one more day!

This weekend was spent mostly working on Twin Stripe projects and getting some much-needed relaxation.

I also had a fantastic workout at the gym and made a nutritious breakfast smoothie.

While I didn’t make any specific New Year’s resolutions, I am attempting to be more conscious of making healthy choices.

My brother gave me an electric mixer for Christmas last year, which I intended to prepare soups and smoothies.

However, I stowed it away in a drawer and forgot about it until blogger Meg Biram persuaded me to make a smoothie for morning a few weeks ago.

She shared a photo of her smoothie on Instagram, and I reproduced it here. This smoothie is high in antioxidants, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, and other nutrients. It creates a full breakfast.

Berry Banana Spinach Smoothie

Ingredients

  • a third cup plain Greek yogurt
  • half-cup coconut water (or plain water)
  • 1 cup mixed frozen berries (I prefer blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries)
  • One ripe banana
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • One tablespoon chia seeds
  • a half-lemon juice
  • 1 – 2 cups spinach, loosely packed

When I prepare this dish, I usually eyeball the ingredients; the measurements here are my best guesses.

You are allowed to use as much or as little of what you choose. I start with the yogurt and coconut water, then layer on the berries, banana, and other ingredients. After I’ve blended everything else, I usually add the spinach last.

I throw a couple of giant handfuls of spinach into my smoothie and don’t notice it. If you are hesitant to try the spinach, start with a tiny amount and gradually increase the amount as you become more comfortable.

If you need some more ideas, I’ve gathered a collection of energizing smoothies for your morning or snacking delight.

A healthful meal is an excellent way to begin the day. A breakfast smoothie provides me with plenty of energy for the rest of the day.

Do you have any particular breakfast or smoothie recipes?
