The number one question I get asked on my blog is what do I eat for breakfast? I have no idea why, but my answer is always, “A smoothie, of course!” I alternate between my berry spinach smoothie and my Garden of Life Organic Plant Protein smoothie. It’s quick, it’s delicious, and packed with real nutrition. I particularly like to make smoothies in my Bullet because I love the convenience of grabbing the cup you make it in and taking it on the go…and it fits perfect in my car’s beverage console!
My blog is all about nourishing your body with foods that heal. As a former chronic disease sufferer, I have learned to view food a bit differently. These days with every bite I think to myself, “Is what I’m about to eat going to harm me or continue to heal me?”
What I love about this power breakfast smoothie is that it is considered a definite healer in my book and here’s why: the protein powder has 30% of our recommended daily protein, its grain and gluten free, AND it’s packed with probiotics! Almond milk contains high levels of vitamin E, magnesium,iron and calcium, just to name a few. Berries are an excellent source of vitamin C (which is an immunity booster) and they also have anti-cancer, anti-fungal properties. The added coconut water is a rich source of electrolytes and rich in natural vitamins (especially the B vitamins).Ingredients:
- 1 packet or serving scoop of Garden of Life Organic Plant Protein Chocolate
- 6 ounces unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup of frozen orfresh strawberry’s (or berries of your choice)
- 2 ounces coconut water
Mix all ingredients in blender or bullet and ENJOY!
