A smoothie for breakfast or lunch is quick & fast! I do this often on my way out the door during the school year so I can ‘eat’ breakfast in the car, or in the morning before I work out (I’m not one of those people who can go without eating before my workout). I go back and forth between almond butter/banana & fruit/banana. This morning I went with fruit. I would say go for fresh in the summer, but I have multiple bags of frozen berries from the spring, so I used those. This is also very refreshing & wonderful for summer!
1 cup of coconut water (plain or flavored)
1/2 cup of water
1 cup berries (frozen or fresh)
1 banana (I like frozen, it makes the smoothie thicker)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds or hemp seeds
handful of greens (like kale or spinach)
Blend & Drink Up!
