My Breakfast Smoothie

We always have a green smoothie for breakfast. I know smoothies are popular, but most smoothies have milk or yogurt in them and, typically, no greens.

My usual breakfast smoothies has spinach, dandelion greens, or parsley. I also add frozen berries. You can uses any greens or fruit you desire. In fact, greens need to be rotated to avoid alkaloid build up. I prefer the lowest sugar content possible, so I use mixed berries (blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries). But you could use mango, banana, apples, peaches, etc. I also add a raw protein powder and sometimes chia seeds and raw Maca powder.

This one is from Garden of Life, but there are many other options. I use some unsweetened and some sweetened with stevia in the same smoothie. This recipe makes enough to share with my kids and they like it a little bit sweetened.

Enjoy! If you are making green smoothies for the first time, you may want to start with fewer greens and more fruit until you develop a taste for the greens.  Better to start the journey simple and build up than to give up altogether from changing too much too soon!
