Breana asks: What do you put in your smoothie?

Handful of spinach, kale, one Apple, a carrot, fresh pineapple chunks, frozen mango, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1tbsp flax meal, filtered water, ice. Chia seeds help thicken so I don't use yogurt. Sometimes I add few frozen raspberries, 1/2 lemon, or romaine lettuce depending on what is available.

Protein. I skip the dairy and go for healthy hemp seed that helps make it creamy. Ground flax seed for cholesterol reducing fiber is great in a breakfast smoothie along with that whole grain oatmeal. Avocados not only make it creamy, but help your body utilize nutrients in the other green veggies used.

I put both cinnamon and a tsp of turmeric in fruit and veggie smoothies, spices that are beneficial to health. I also add several leaves of romaine or other lettuce if I don't have fresh spinach.

I use a blend of frozen blueberries and strawberries, as well as frozen peaches and mangoes. I use a cup of milk, a tablespoon or 2 of vanilla yogurt, a cup of mixed berries and a cup of mangoes/peaches. Makes a nice filling smoothie to take to work in the morning.
