Green Superfood Smoothie

A go to combination of mine. The pineapple adds all the sweetness you need and you will have boundless energy after blending. I am a self professed coffee addict, there is nothing like coffee that gets my gears running after a night of restless sleep, but this green smoothie competes with how much it wakes me up.

Ingredients

2 cups spinach, baby leaves, or 1 cup frozen spinach, lightly thawed

2 tablespoons of chia gel (chia seeds soaked in water or coconut water for several hours, good to have on hand in the fridge, and lasts a week!)

3 pineapple rings, or 1 cup pineapple chunks

1/2 cup blueberries, frozen or fresh

1 teaspoon spirulina

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

2 tablespoons goji berries

Directions

Blend well and enjoy!

Mango Green Smoothie

Will keep you full for hours, and is a great recovery smoothie because it has potassium from the banana. Feel free to add some greek yogurt for more protein or if you are not worried about keeping it vegan!

1 cup frozen mango chunks

1 banana, sliced

2 cups baby spinach leaves or 1 cup frozen

1/2 cup chia gel (chia seeds soaked in water or coconut water for a couple hours in a glass jar, lasts for a week and adds awesome protein to your smoothies)

1 tsp cinnamon

Directions

Blend and love!

Blueberry Kale Superfood Smoothie

A perfect workout drink or green smoothie to power through your morning. With fun superfoods like cocao powder and ground flaxseed and coconut oil, you will be sipping goodness in no time. Feel free to sub for whatever milk you desire but if you are using sweetened nut milks, the smoothie may be too sweet since the pineapple and blueberries add a nice sweetness.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil, melted **

1 cup kale, finely chopped, tough stems removed

1/2 cup frozen or fresh blueberries

1 teaspoon ground flaxeed

1 teaspoon chia seeds

1/2 cup unsweetened rice milk

2 pineapple rings, chopped, or 1/2 cup frozen pineapple

Directions

Blend until all ingredients are mixed well.

** You may want to omit this if you are trying to lose weight. I personally have not noticed weight gain from coconut oil and it is a dose of heart healthy fats, but I have read that it is a high calorie food that may not be suited for everyone.
