For the past four-ish months or so, I’ve been a weekday smoothie breakfast drinker. I’ve got the quickness down to a science, so I never have an excuse not to devote the six required minutes it takes to start my day off right.
It starts with a freezer stocked with various frozen fruits and veggies. I usually have an assortment of spinach, kale, strawberries, cherries, blueberries, mangos, and pineapple. And then some chia seeds (or flax or hemp seeds).
I fill a Blendtec with 10 ounces of warm water (yep warm!), 1/2 cup of frozen greens, 1-1/2 cups of frozen fruit, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, and let the blender do its thing. The warm water keeps the juice from turning into sorbet. Some of my fav combos are spinach-strawberries-mangos-chia and kale-blackberries-cherries-pineapple-chia.
