Smoothies are one of my favorite ways to enjoy breakfast, and as a perk, it's a great food preparation method to pack as many nutrients into one meal as possible! I love eating whole fruits, but veggies are lower on my favorites list unless in salad form. This green smoothie is packed with 2 whole cups of baby spinach, something my son hasn't quite acquired a taste for yet which helps me get more of what he needs into his diet too! Adding oats helps thicken while adding fiber too ☺️
I hope you will get a chance to try this out soon, it's delicious, healthy and refreshing!
You will need:
For the smoothie 🍓🍹🌱:
1 rounded scoop Orgain Vanilla Bean protein (or other alternative)
1/4 cup raw oats (I like Bob's Red Mill Extra Thick Cut)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 cups baby spinach🍃
1/2 cup ice cubes ❄️
1 small banana 🍌
1 ripe nectarine 🍑
1/4 cup fresh blueberries
1/4 fresh strawberries, sliced 🍓
1 tbsp shredded coconut
1 tsp chia seeds
Putting it all together:
Blend all smoothie ingredients on high in the blender, until smooth with no lumps. Pour into two bowls, then divide toppings between the two smoothies. Bust out a spoon and dig in! 🍽 Switching the straw out for a spoon once in a while is a nice change of pace, and can be done with any smoothie!
