Smoothies are a great way to increase your fruit and vegetable intake for the day. In as little as one cup you can get at least 10g of protein, 10g of fibre, a daily dose of good fats and this sets you up for the rest of the day.
I like to start my day with something that is refreshing and thirst quenching.
for this recipe, you will need a blender or magic bullet.
Berry Blast Smoothie
1/2 cup fresh strawberries or frozen berries
1/2 of a ripe banana
1 cup of spinach
3-5 pieces of pineapple
1 scoop protein powder
1 cup of water
Blend all ingredients in a blender or magic bull yet and off to your day.
Tip: fresh does taste better then frozen. You can also wash/cut up these fruits and veggies ahead of time for ready use in the morning
