1/4 Slice of Avocado
1 Giant Handful of fresh organic washed and rinsed spinach
1 Tbl Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1 Scoop Collagen or Protein Powder. For Protein powders I like Nutiva Superfoods or Sun Warrior.
1/2 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Nut or Coconut Milk
1- 1/2 Cups Ice
This smoothie was inspired by Beaming's Lean and Green Smoothie and the BeWELL smoothie by By Kelly LeVeque. See below for her take on how to make the perfect smoothie!
BeWELL SMOOTHIE: 1 serving PROTEIN + 1 serving FIBER+ unlimited GREENS + 1/4 cup FRUCTOSE +2 tbsp FAT + LIQUID + SUPERFOOD
Protein: Our recommendations for protein varies depending on our clients lifestyle and goals. Look for a clean sprouted vegetarian protein or an organic grass fed whey. Servings will vary depending on your selected protein, read the directions and add one serving per smoothie. We are also available personally for a consultation and more information!
Fiber: Raw fiber powder, chia seeds, flax seeds or avocado are great choices. We recommend keeping your smoothie psyllium husk free.
Greens: Get creative, anything green! Kale, spinach, romaine, basil, cilantro, parsley, cucumber, fennel or any other vegetables, herbs or leafy greens. The list goes on and on.
Fruit/or High Fructose Vegetables: Berries, lemons, limes, mango, banana, pears, peaches, beets or even carrots. Frozen fruit is a fun option to replace ice if you like your smoothie thick and chunky. Slice your bananas and freeze them so that you can easily grab a 1/4-1/2 cup and don’t over do it. We limit items that contain Fructose/Glucose to keep blood sugar manageable.
Fat: Avocado, Coconut Oil, MCT oil, Nut Butter, Walnuts, Coco Butter, Cocoa Butter or Ghee at room temperature.
Liquid: Water, Almond Milk, Coconut Water, Cashew Milk, Flax Milk, Walnut Milk, Hemp Milk or cold pressed green juice. Take note of the sugar content in your green juice and avoid added fructose. Depending on your preference for a thin or thick smoothie you can add liquid accordingly. We have seen it takes at least a cup to get the blender moving.
Superfoods/Additives: Greens Powder, Collagen, Tumeric, Bee Pollen, Goji Berries, Raw Gluten Free Granola, Cocoa Nibs, Ginger, Chia Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Coconut flakes, Sea Salt.
Blend your ingredients together to create smooth consistency.
