Make a Healthy Green Smoothie
For a quick and healthy breakfast try a healthy green smoothie. This recipe is fresh and sweet but isn’t so heavy that it will weigh you down. To prepare the smoothie, combine these ingredients in a blender:
1/2 apple (chopped)
1 cup spinach leaves
1/2 cup of water
*On days when I need an extra protein boost, I add one tablespoon of vanilla protein powder.
Time-saving preparation tip: I freeze bananas in advance so they are easy to grab and always available. Just take 6-8 ripe bananas, peel them and cut them in half. Lay them on a cookie tray and stick them in the freezer for about an hour. When they are frozen throw them together in a baggie and put them back in the freezer. They won’t stick together, and since they are already frozen they help keep your smoothies cold when you prepare them.
