Smoothie Heaven

For the past month I’ve been making smoothies for breakfast. This isn’t anything totally new in my routine, but up until very recently I was super reliant on protein powder. This is great when you’re in a pinch for a FAST high protein meal, but let’s face it, it’s not very natural, full of sugar and fillers and calories. So I wanted to try something new, something healthier and more natural.

Meet: the Spinach Breakfast Smoothie Family

I don’t have photographs of these bad boys because lets face it, I make them at night, pour into a cup, and they look rather green and brown by the next day. But I swear, these are tasty treats and I truly believe it’s helped me lose a little weight, or at least bloat. Here are my favorites:

Chocolate Banana Smoothie

  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1 Tbsp Dutch Processed Cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 – 2 handfuls baby spinach

Combine all ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie

  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, hulled
  • 1 Tbsp PB2 peanut butter powder
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 – 2 handfuls baby spinach

Combine all ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth.

Tropical Joy Smoothie

  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup strawberries, hulled
  • 1/3 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 – 2 handfuls baby spinach

Combine all ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie

  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1 Tbsp Dutch Processed Cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 – 2 handfuls baby spinach

Combine all ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth.

Coffee Boost Smoothie

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup strong coffee or two shots of espresso, cooled
  • 1 banana
  • 1 Tbsp Dutch Processed Cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 – 2 handfuls baby spinach

Combine all ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth.
