Energizing Get-Up-&-Go! Smoothie Recipe

h

Using a Magic Bullet or blender, combine the following and blend until smooth:

  • 1/4 cup nuts/seeds (can be any nut of your choosing or a combo – I used what I had on hand: walnuts & pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/3 ripe avocado
  • Cover with milk (organic vanilla soy, almond, rice, hemp, coconut milk, etc.)

 

Next, add & blend together:

  • 1 ripe nectarine
  • 3-4 organic strawberries (see the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen list for top 12 produce most highly sprayed)
  • 1/4 cup frozen organic blueberries (or fresh – I freeze mine as it saves me having to add ice)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup more milk to ensure ease with the blender/Magic Bullet
  • Ice (optional)

 

Other Options:

  • For an after-the-gym workout, add a scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder
  • If you haven’t had your healthy fat for the day, add a tablespoon hemp, flax, UDO’s oil, or VEGA’s EFA Antioxidant Blend (my favorite oil)

 

You can play around with the different types of fruit you choose, or you can use up what you have on hand.  My other favorites are peaches,  raspberries, melons, mangoes and bananas.  This smoothie is just that – ultra smooth and creamy and it sure fills the spot between lunch and dinner.  Enjoy!
