Hi Beautiful Friend,
We traveled to Asheville for Thanksgiving and since we drove I brought along my Vitamix. Starting the day with a green smoothie kept me feeling balanced and grounded.
Below is one of my new favorites. It contains blueberries filled with antioxidants, cucumbers for a boost of alkalinity, banana for a bit of sweetness, almond butter for protein and spinach for a dose of greens. Add cinnamon to help regulate your blood sugars and ground flax seed or psyllium husks for extra fiber.
Berry-Green Smoothie – Serves one
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- ½-1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 TB almond butter
- 1/2 banana
- ½ cucumber peeled and diced
- 1 cup spinach (or other green)
- 1 TB ground flax seed or psyllium husks (optional)
- Cinnamon to taste
Blend almond milk and greens until smooth. Then add other ingredients and blend to creamy.
