page's power breakfast smoothie

 

One more post from Page! When we were in Montana she made smoothies for breakfast and everyone LOVED them. This was only a little suprising since she packs them with all kinds of things: almond butter, kale, flax seeds, etc. It was a delicious and nutritious way to start the day and the kids were asking for seconds.

 

Page uses frozen fruits and frozen kale to make a really thick and cold smoothie but you can certainly substitute fresh fruits or kale for frozen if you have them on hand - just use enough frozen ingredients to keep the smoothie cold.  Page also added nutritional reasons for all her ingredients in parentheses below. Thank you, Page!

 

PAGE'S POWER BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE

(makes 4 generous servings)

2 11 ounce Vita Coca coconut waters (hydration)

1 large banana, peeled (potassium)

two heaping tablespoons almond butter (protein and fiber)

2 heaping cups frozen raspberries, blueberries, or cherries, preferably a mix (dark fruits are full of antioxidents)

1 heaping cup frozen peaches or mango

1 1/2 cups frozen kale

2 tablespoons whole or ground flax seeds (Omega 3's - some people say ground flas seed is better for absorption but they get at least partially ground in the blender)

2 tablespoons chia seeds (Omega 3's)

1 pack of frozen acai puree, optional (I use Sambazon which is available at whole foods in 100gram smoothis packages)

 

Combine all the ingredients in the blender and puree. Serve immediately.
