BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE

breakfast smoothie | designlovefest

i love the idea of having a smoothie for breakfast, it’s fast, versatile and satisfying. i will admit that i’ve been known to try and make my smoothies too healthy by stuffing them with too many greens and powders which ends up making the drinking process less than enjoyable. i’m working on scaling that back and adding just a few key ingredients to keep me full and nourished but not being over zealous with my add-ins. this smoothie hits that mark, it has bee pollen for immunity, hemp seed for protein, flaxseed for healthy fats, almond butter to keep you full and a bit of fruit to sweeten it up. we used coconut milk for our smoothie but i often just use water and i feel like that works just as well. if you’re looking to add in greens, a big handful of spinach would work well in this. also, i know there is a lot of noise out there right now about limiting fruit intake and cutting out bananas from your smoothies but i don’t agree with that philosophy at all and believe that eating fruits is an important part of a well balanced diet!  – joanie

for the most part, i buy my fruit frozen instead of fresh except when it comes to bananas. for those, they are most nutritious if they are really ripe and brown so i buy a bunch and let them get ripe and then cut and freeze for later use.

Banana, strawberry, almond butter smoothie
serves 2-3

what you’ll need:
• 2 cups strawberries
• 1 teaspoon chia seeds
• 3 tablespons hemp hearts
• 2 teaspoons flax
• 2 frozen bananas
• 2 tablespoons almond butter
• 3 cups of liquid (water, coconut water, coconut milk, nut milk)

optional garnishes:
• whipped coconut cream or greek yogurt
• bee pollen
• sliced strawberries

• blend the smoothie ingredients in a blender until smooth, you can adjust the liquid based on how thick or thin you prefer your smoothie. we garnished ours with vegan whipped coconut cream. To make the whipped cream leave a can of coconut cream in the refrigerator overnight. open the can and spoon out the top firm layer, living the liquid below it in the can. using an electric beater whip until soft peaks form.
