our favorite green smoothie

I've recently started making green smoothies my breakfast, and they are surprisingly filling and absolutely addicting. This smoothie is packed with vitamins and minerals, and is a lovely way to set the tone for a healthy day. With a high powered blender, it's easy to blend up a huge amount of fruits and veggies into a delicious drink in very little time, especially if you wash and store your greens in bulk. Julie also enjoys a green smoothie ("Soomy!") with her breakfast. Here is the basic recipe.

Breakfast Green Smoothie

2 servings plus a baby size serving

1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 cup water
1 cup frozen strawberries (blueberries and raspberries work well, too)
2 cups kale
1 banana (optional)
1 tablespoon coconut oil

Blend all ingredients and guzzle.

This is just the basic recipe I blend. Some days I like to add dried goji berries, and switch up the frozen fruit. Peaches and mangoes work nicely. The greens are also interchangeable. Kale, collards, romaine, parsley...Whatever feels right on any given day. Enjoy!
