Protein-Packed Green Smoothies

Protein-Packed Green Smoothies

Don't have a lot of time in the morning for breakfast?  No problem. Why not make a smoothie. I do Shakeology in the mornings which is packed with over 70 natural ingredients that keep me full for a couple of hours. If you do not have that handy here are some yummy recipes that will fill you up and give you energy

Recipe 1

1 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup coconut water
1 squeeze of Barlean’s Key Lime Omega oil
1 squeeze of Barlean’s Orange Swirl Omega oil
8 cups organic spinach
large handful frozen peaches and pineapple
1 Tbsp maca powder
1 Tbsp matcha green tea powder
optional: bee pollen (look for local)
optional: raw cacao nibs (for an extra sparkle)


Blend completely until smooth.

Recipe 2 

1 hand full organic spinach (or any dark leafy green such as kale)
1 cup frozen pineapple (fresh works too)
1/2 organic cucumber (if not organic, peel of skin)
2 peeled kiwis
2 dates (to sweeten things up)
1 T flax seeds
1 T hemp powder
1 t maca powder
1 passion fruit (the inside only ; ) --- Passion fruit is ripe when all wrinkly, looks weird but is delicious!

ADD ONE CUP WATER and blend everything up!

Recipe 3

3 cups fresh baby spinach
1 tsp. sunflower oil
1/2 tsp. chili powder
14 fl. oz Greek yogurt
lemon juice (optional)

Wash the spinach and dry. Heat the oil in a pan and heat the spinach over medium heat until the spinach wilts. Let the spinach cool to touch, then process finely with the Greek yogurt. Season with salt and chili powder. Add a dash of lemon juice if you wish. Chill in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes

Have a very fit day
