Recipe: Beet Berry Smoothie

I am a creature of habit when it comes to my daily smoothies but I've been experimenting with some different ingredients and wanted to share! I've been researching foods that are good for liver function since I have been trying to balance my hormones naturally and one of the best foods to help liver function are beets! Beets are bright red and don't have much flavor but they have a ton of nutrients! I picked up some beets from the farmers market a few weeks ago and I washed & cut them in small pieces and put them in the freezer! Adding beets to your morning smoothie won't only turn your smoothie the pretty shade of purple but you are also adding amazing nutrients and plant enzymes into your diet!!

The Ultimate Morning Kickstart Smoothie Recipe

I am so excited to share with you my #1 favorite smoothie with you! I drink this smoothie as my breakfast almost every single morning and I LOVE it because it fuels energy and is full of healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and protein! 

It's chocolatey, rich, just enough sweetness, and a WHOLE lot of nutrients! 

Why start every morning with a smoothie for breakfast? A smoothie is the best way to give you all the nutrients you need in a short amount of time and with hardly any prep! It's truly the perfect breakfast option! Also, since you are eating solely fruits, vegetables, healthy fat, and nuts, you are saving your body from having to use energy to digest solid foods in the morning! Its a win/win for you and your body!

Here’s the recipe:

3 Ice cubes

1 frozen banana

1 handful of spinach

1 cup of Almond Milk

1 Scoop of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides

1 Scoop of Vanilla Vegan Protein

1 tsp Chia seeds

2 Tablespoon Cacao Nibs

Optional: 1 Tablespoon of coffee/espresso beans

Optional: 1 Tablespoon of Coconut Butter or Coconut Oil

 

*Blend for 30 seconds and drink up! You are fueling yourself for an incredible day!!

 

Snap a pic of your smoothie and share it!  Make sure you tag me in it and use the hashtag #livewellwithsmoothies so I can show you some love!
