  Start your day right!  Drink in your nutrients, antioxidants, and energy boosting Extra Virgin Coconut Oil in this delicious morning smoothie, all whilst enjoying the taste of a classic favorite, the PBJ- Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich!  You'll be set with a serving of veggies, protein, and EVCO's clean burning Good Fats to feed your brain and boost metabolism and energy.

 

Guiltless PBJ Smoothie

2 cups or one big handful of fresh organic spinach 1 heaping tablespoon of organic peanut butter (optional sub raw almond butter if you prefer- for natural protein and good fats) 1 cup almond milk 1 cup organic fresh squeezed orange juice (Trader Joe's is our fav) 1 cup frozen organic blueberries 1 to 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (depending on if you will have any other EVCO in your day- to boost energy and metabolism) 1 heaping scoop of plant based protein powder 5 drops grapefruit seed extract (natural immune booster)

 

Optional Additions: 1 cup frozen mango 1/2 cup aloe vera water 1 heaping tablespoon of your favorite superfood/greens mix 1 whole banana OR 4 frozen banana cubes

 

CHEF'S TIP: Banana Cubes are an AMAZING smoothie addition in any smoothie!  Cut whole banana in cubes, then freeze in plastic bag for future use.  This makes a wonderful smoothie consistency, and is a great use of those bananas that are about to go, rather than tossing them out.

 

Blend until smooth.  Yields enough to share (optional).  ;)  Enjoy!
