Jay and I drink this smoothie every morning for breakfast. My friend Julia is an advocate for the green smoothie revolution and I’ve incorporated many of her ideas into this smoothie. The following recipe contains more servings of fruits and vegetables than a typical American consumes all day. *Excluding potatoes, on average Americans consume a combined total of only three servings of fruits and vegetables per day. The Everyday Breakfast Smoothie has about five servings of combined fruits and vegetables per person.
You are going to need a blender. The idea is to drink fresh veggies and increase overall nutrition. So play around with the ingredients if you want.
- 1-2 bananas
- 1 apple
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup of blueberries
- 1/2 cup frozen green peas
- 4 large stalks and leaves of kale
- 1/2 red or green pepper
- 1/4 bunch of fresh parsley
- 1 tbsp wheatgrass (bought from a Health Food store)
- 2 tbsp of flaxseed oil
- water to blend
You can also eat a handful of nuts for protein on the side.
Serve and enjoy!
