I love a good smoothie for breakfast - probably make one at least once per week. I especially love it when I can hide a solid intake of greens in them. My go to is my Green Goddess smoothie, but sometimes a girl can only handle so much tropical fruit in one week. I like this smoothie as a recovery drink - usually after an early morning workout. I get my carbs with coconut water, fruit and spinach and protein from a clean grass-fed source (SFH). If you're not using this as a recovery drink, feel free to sub the coconut water for coconut milk and/or add a heft scoop of almond butter and get those healthy fats in there! Eating fats post workout isn't ideal, as it hinders protein and carb nutrient absorption (which you need after a hard sweat sesh) - so I stick with coconut water as a post workout smoothie liquid base. But for any other smoothie inhaling occasion, I go HAM on some coconut milk.
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1-2 handfuls baby spinach
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
- 1 scoop clean vanilla protein powder (I use SFH Pure Vanilla)
Place everything in a blender and get wild.
