Favorite Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie

When Bennett was born I became so absorbed in motherhood and making sure that I was continuing to balance all of my other responsibilities competently that taking care of myself kind of fell by the wayside. I started making a habit of skipping meals, which is embarrassing and difficult to admit since I was a breastfeeding mother. I knew I needed a change so I started with making sure I was having a nutritious breakfast.

After my revelation I got a NutriBullet and started making myself breakfast smoothies and now I'm hooked. Starting my days with a green smoothie has made a pronounced difference in my energy level and ability to focus.

My green smoothie contains an incredible amount of vitamins and antioxidants from spinach (including carotenoids that help reduce progression of macular degeneration) as well as a protein punch from cashew butter, low-calorie almond milk and banana. I also add strawberries for some sweetness and freshness along with chia seeds for added fiber and omega-3.

I use the NutriBullet Pro 900 Series blender to make my smoothies and love it for its simplicity. It is extremely powerful and comes as a set with travel cups and lids as well as a recipe book. I whole heartedly recommend it!
