The Green Smoothie has become a favorite way for me to start my day off. I know, I know…Green Smoothie just doesn’t sound or look like the first thing you might want in the morning, but just trust me, when have I led you astray when it comes to things tasting good?
Aside from tasting good, The Green Smoothie is a very healthy breakfast for those of us with very little time in the morning to make healthy eating a priority.
I don’t know about you, but if I start my day off eating something that is good for me, it’s easier to make better choices the rest of the day.
As I have shared in recent posts, The Dailey Method: An Unexpected Love Affair and Mommy Diary Monday: Taking Care of Me, I am currently participating in a 60 Day Challenge to a lifestyle change through The Dailey Method Rancho Bernardo/Poway.
Part of this challenge is to follow a mostly plant-based diet. The Green Smoothie has been a staple for me during the past 6 weeks, providing nutrition that I can take with me on the go that actually fills me up and keeps me fueled long enough to get through my mornings, which 3-4 days a week are spent in a Dailey Method class.
Compliments of The Dailey Method 60 Day Challenge Cookbook, here is the recipe for The Green Smoothie, my new favorite breakfast.
- ¾ cup Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 4-5 Kale leaves
- 1 Banana
- 1 tablespoon Almond Butter
- 1 tablespoon Hemp or Chia Seeds
- In a blender combine all ingredients except the hemp seeds.
- Once blended, add a tablespoon of hemp seeds on top.
Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? Please share it with us in the comments, I always love to try something new!
