This flavourful smoothie is jam packed with nutrients and it tastes so delicious the perfect way to begin your day. This warmer weather kickstarts cravings for healthy, fresh, light, real whole foods.
Smoothies are a great grab and go breakfast you can even meal prep smoothie bags so everything is in one bag ready to go. This allows you to dump, blend and enjoy. I love the Ninja blender as it even has a to go individual container with a lid. Lately I am not on the run because I am working from home and I love to sip away as I work each morning.
Smoothies are a great way to begin your day with nutrients you can easily add in whatever you need. By adding in 1 scoop (roughly 1/4 cup) protein powder you are getting 20 grams of protein, if you don’t want to add protein powder you can add hemp hearts (shelled hemp seeds) instead. Avocados are added for healthy fats, this helps keep you fuller longer, absorb fat soluble vitamins and great for so many functions in the body.
The smoothie is so vibrant and bright it is sure to kickstart your day with good vibes!
Beets are an amazing under used and rated veggie. They help with phase 2 liver detoxification and they are loaded with immune boosting vitamin C, fibre, folate, manganese, potassium and antioxidants.
If you want to turn this smoothie recipe into an nice cream or dessert recipe add in more cherries or ice to thicken up into the yummiest treat. I have also made and froze this smoothie and saved it for a delicious dessert.
