This is the perfect time of year to get back to smoothies for breakfast. They’re cold, delicious and refreshing! Oh, and yes, THEY’RE GOOD FOR YOU! You don’t have to get fancy, just use what you have.
Today, I started with some frozen strawberries, half a frozen banana, water and a splash of agave nectar.
You can adjust the amount of water depending on how thick or thin you want it. I added some fresh strawberries, raspberries, cucumber and about an inch of ginger and gave it another whirl.
Time for the greens. Today I was down to just spinach, but you can add kale, arugula or whatever other greens you have.
And now, just blend until the whole concoction is smooth!
I had to laugh at myself as I made this. I took the lid off while it was still blending, and the vortex reminded me of Esther Hicks, author of Getting Into the Vortex, who believes that by aligning ourselves with the source within “we’re able to be the joyful Beings we were meant to be.” Yeesh! Sorry to get all woo woo on you over smoothie making! But, I have to admit, as I looked at this, I decided to put healthy eating, a long walk and loving thoughts of family and friends into my vortex today. Just saying.
And now comes the best part.
Of course I had to add a bit of lemon to it to give it that extra zing. You can add whatever you have available – blueberries, pineapple, apple, peaches, any assortment of greens. I always feel like I did something nice for myself when I make this for breakfast. No matter what’s on the agenda for the rest of the day, I know I’ve had a good dose of fruits and veggies. And I’ve put a few good things into my vortex as well.
Are you a smoothie person? What’s your favorite combination?
Sending you wishes for a beautiful day. Thanks so much for stopping by.
