These are quick and easy (literally takes seconds!)
Though I still LOVE juicing green drinks, smoothies are the quicker go-to and they provide your fiber AND your phytonutrients and protein to get you going for the day.
Here are my top three new morning smoothie recipes – just pick your recipe, combine all ingredients in your Vitamix, blend until smooth and enjoy right away for maximum benefit…
Power Berry Smoothie
1/4 cup organic frozen blueberries, 1/4 cup organic frozen strawberries, 1 inch rhubarb, 1 sprig of fresh mint, 1 scoop of Real Meal protein powder (derived from grass-fed cows), 1 cup of organic baby spinach, 2 cups of ice water
Lean Green Morning Machine
1 cup organic romaine lettuce, 2 organic kale leaves, 1/4 cup fresh organic parsley, 1 lemon wedge with rind, 1 small organic apple, 1 scoop of Real Meal protein powder, 2 cups of ice water
Orange You Ready for the Day Smoothie
1 medium size orange peeled and seeded, 1 whole organic carrot, 1/2 inch fresh ginger peeled, 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1 small organic apple, 1 scoop of Real Meal protein powder, 2 cups of ice water
If you don’t have a Vitamix, by now you know this is my blender of choice and I urge you to go order one now. I have tried the other brands – they collect dust in a cabinet because they don’t measure up to my Vitamix.
My Vitamix sits on my kitchen counter and is used daily. Same machine for 14 years! Vitamix has amazing machines and they will last and last and last… best investment ever.
