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!
