my favorite super smoothie

smoothies are a dime a dozen, but this is a special smoothie, because it's mine! i've refined it to be tasty, fruity, smooth and packed full of nutrients, which is exactly how i like to start my morning. this smoothie keeps me full all morning.

i'm not one of those hardcore folks who is gonna drink a smoothie that tastes like grass. nope. sorry. this smoothie is slightly vanilla-y and totally fruity, no spinach or veggie taste at all. and pumpkin seeds? wonderful source of fiber and protein, with no taste, i promise! it ain't the prettiest smoothie - depending on how much fruit you add, you'll get a nice purple color - but hey, that's not the point! this thing is packed with nutrition!

meredith's super smoothie

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder of your choice - i use eas lean protein in vanilla creme
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup - 3/4 cup frozen berries - add as much as you like to balance out the flavor! i use blackberries, raspberries and blueberries, but all fruits work well here
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1-3 handfuls of spinach
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional if you're a vanilla fan!)

combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. for thickness, add ice. to thin the smoothie, add more almond milk.
