My Smoothie Recipe!

This is my daily breakfast. I think it is so good and healthy all in one. You can adjust to specific needs, of course, but this is a good basic recipe to start out with. Experiment with it and have fun!

1-2 Bananas (frozen makes it more creamy and thick)
Frozen or fresh blueberries (about a handful or so)
Can add fresh or frozen Strawberries and/or raspberries, or any fruit of choice (A tropical one is good sometimes for a change, and  just use coconut, mango, pineapple etc)
Fresh Kale or spinach (a stalk or handful, by taste)
Coconut oil ( heaping tablespoonful)
Coconut Milk (add enough so blender can churn and adjust to thickness desired
Cinnamon (to taste again:))
Greek yogurt ( a dollop if desired, and dairy isn't a problem)
Nutritional yeast (I use about a teaspoon)
Lecithin (Teaspoon-tablespoon)
Ground flaxseed (1 teaspoon)
Pysillium (tablespoon)
Green powder (Tablespoon)
Vitamins C powder ( I use Alacer-Emergen C type)
You can add nuts, dates, honey, (for enzyme content) stevia, whatever you think will be suited to your needs and taste! (Not necessary though)

Blend this all up in a blender and use the Coconut milk as needed for smooth and drinkable consistency.

Enjoy energy and health!!!

  1. Thanks for the suggestions. I never thought to put coconut oil in, not spinach, for that matter :) Josh has discovered the delicious flavor of adding a chunk of lemon...I think it is especially good with a blueberry combo. Take care, friend. It's always good to hear from you.
