The Basic Morning Smoothie – Your Body Will Thank You

The base (these are foods I almost always use in my smoothie):

– Either Kale or Spinach.  I think spinach tastes a little better and usually results in a more liquified smoothie (i.e. less lumpiness).  But Kale probably contains more nutrients.  A good alternative is baby Kale.

– Soy Milk/Hemp Milk/Almond Milk.  Sometimes I like to switch it up!

– Something Citrus.  This is key I think because it cuts the flavor of the veggies and it feels like you are eating an all fruit smoothie.  My go-tos are pineapple, grapefruit, or oranges.

–  Ginger.  Because ginger rocks.

– Frozen Berries.  Anti-oxidants yo!

–  Amazing Grass GreenSuperfood.  You never know what micro-nutrients you’re missing out on.

– Whey Protein.  Veggie protein is great, but I think its good to supplement.
