In order to get out the door and to work on time, I put all these items in an airtight container the night before so that I can simply put it all in a blender for my breakfast the next morning. I can even drink it on the way to work, so it’s a time-saver. And, it’s very healthful and delicious. Here is the basic smoothie, and I change it up with new things occasionally.
1.5 cups unsweetened coconut milk
1 banana, sliced
1 avocado, skin and seed removed
1 cup fresh blueberries (frozen okay during off-season)
1/4 cup flax or chia seeds, freshly ground (I use a dedicated coffee grinder)
4 sprigs of fresh mint, chopped with long stems removed
1 large handful of fresh greens (spinach and baby kale are ideal!)
Ice cubes as desired
Place all items in blender, and blend to desired consistency. I use the puree setting on my blender, and it’s very smooth and delicious. It makes about 16 oz.
Substitutes: Any berries, walnuts instead of listed seeds, nut milks (low or no sodium important)
