Stay Healthy Smoothie


The Stay Healthy Smoothie is definitely my go-to smoothie. I drink it everyday in the afternoon so I am sure to get my daily dose fruits and veggies. Of course I still seek creative ways to fit them into my other meals as well, the smoothie just takes some of the pressure off.
Besides, it is delicious!

Place the following ingredients in a blender:
  • 2 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup cold water

Turn the blender on a low setting until all ingredients are mixed.
While the blender is running, carefully remove the top of the lid and slowly add,
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons liquefied coconut oil

Turn the blender off and add,
  • 2 handfuls of spinach or kale (or a mix of both)
  • Add more water if needed to achieve desired consistency

Return the blender to the low setting for about 30 seconds or until the greens are mixed in.
Increase the blender setting to high and allow it to blend all your ingredients until thoroughly liquefied and your ideal smoothie consistency.

This smoothie is delicious for your taste buds and a huge nutritional boost for your body!
Enjoy and Stay Healthy
