We love our I Love Bacon breakfast chock full of protein and healthy fats from the avocado.  We try to avoid recommending smoothies mostly because folks add protein powder for good measure, and we don’t encourage powders, liquid calories or many supplements.  However, life gets busy, and if the choice is missing breakfast or grabbing a quick smoothie – let’s make a smoothie!  We are confident that you can make a smoothie without protein and still make a nutrient dense breakfast to go.  Here are a few of our favorites…

Peanut Butter Chocolate

6 oz almond milk

½ frozen banana

1 T peanut butter

1 tsp cocoa

1 T hemp hearts

handful of spinach

Strawberry Banana

8 oz Maple or Coconut Water

½ frozen banana

2 strawberries

1 T chia seeds

handful of spinach

Supercharged Smoothie

8 oz coconut water – electrolytes

1 tsp turmeric powder – anti inflammatory

1 tsp bee pollen – vit B, C and E

1 tsp cinnamon – Increases insulin sensitivity

1 tsp ground ginger – digestive aid

1 tsp pumpkin seeds – Magnesium

1 T walnuts – omega 3’s

1 T honey (optional) – anti microbial, nutrient dense sugar

1 tsp matcha Green Tea – antioxidants and polyphenols

Place all ingredients in a high powered blender, especially for smoothies containing nuts and seeds.  Add 2-3 ice cubes to each smoothie to thicken and make cold.  Enjoy your nutrient dense, healthy breakfast on the go!
