My Smoothie Formula

Pain Greek Yogurt-This brings the protein (15-20 grams per 6 oz.) which leads to you feeling full longer. 

Frozen Fruit- This will give your smoothie the icy texture without watering it down with water or ice. 

Coconut Water- Basically nature's gatorade. Lots of electrolytes to give you energy! 

Greens- A hand full of baby spinach, or kale in the morning that you can't taste? Yes please! What do I use to cover the taste of greens? Apples, frozen pineapple and mangos are my favorite. 

Orange or Apple Juice- Use a splash of juice to your smoothie to add sweetness and more flavor. 

Additional Boosts- Sometimes I like to add Chia Seeds or Flax Seed Meal to my smoothies for an added boost of nutrition. 
Just use this formula when making your smoothies, the possibilities are limitless! 
Ok, this is as easy as breakfast gets. You literally just dump ingredients in a blender and let it go. Whats more amazing, smoothies are a great vehicle for hiding fruits and vegetables for people like me (picky eaters). Need a meal with a serving of fruit and vegetables, that can be made in less than 5 minutes and can be eaten on the way to school/work? Where there's a meal, there's a way!

A Look at e-Smoothie
