Smoothies. I’m hooked on them. They are such a great filling breakfast that can be made in a flash during a busy morning. I even drink smoothies when the temps drop during winter (gasp! I know!), simply because my body just feels GOOD when drinking them, and it’s one of the few things that keep me truly full for a few hours. Smoothies are a great way to pack in plenty of nutrients – whether it’s from berries, spinach, protein, nuts, seeds, or fiber, smoothies are a great way to start your day.
Since I’ve been making smoothies for so long, I’ve finally gotten my go-to down pat. It’s a blend of frozen mixed berries, a piece or two of a banana, frozen spinach, a Hushup + Hustle Blender bomb (saves time as it’s a pre-made blend of date, honey, chia seeds, flax seeds, nuts, etc.), and almond milk. If I remember, I’ll also add ashwaganda and/or rhodiola for some adaptogens when I want to balance my body & mind and stay calm during stress. This smoothie is on repeat at my house – and even my man is hooked!
A simple, nutrient-packed smoothie made for busy mornings when you need delicious & quick fuel. Plant-based fiber, omega-3s, healthy fats, and protein make this smoothie a nutrient powerhouse! Save even more time by adding all ingredients to a large ziploc bag the night before and sticking it in the freezer.
- 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
- 1/3 banana (frozen or fresh)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 Blender Bomb of choice (I used Aloe Collagen)
- 1 handful spinach or kale
- 1/2–1 tsp powdered adaptogens such as rhodiola or ashwaganda (optional)
- Unsweetened almond milk to blend
- Optional toppings: shredded coconut, rose petals, hemp seeds
Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth and creamy. Enjoy immediately!
