My Go-To Morning Smoothie

morning-smoothie

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!
