Mmm… Spinach! So yummy all the time, but I know the idea of spinach for breakfast can sound less exciting for some. Spinach smoothie to save the day! This one came out delicious and is packed with protein. What you will need:

1 cup soy milk

1/4 cup silken tofu

1 tsp chia seeds, these will make it extra creamy

1 banana

1/2 cup baby spinach

1/4 cup cherries, frozen works well

If wanting more sweet, add a medjool date after removing the pit.

Blend until everything is throughly smoothie ready. A traditional blender will want about two minutes to reach the right consistency. This recipe makes about 17 ounces of smoothie. If you let it sit in the fridge for 10 minutes, the chia seeds will do their creamy magic and make the smoothie super creamy. Yummers!

Kale is one of my very favorite foods. Not just because I find it to be delicious, but because it is so very healthy. There are days I actually crave kale and these are always great days for a smoothie. I pack mine with protein too to keep me full for hours.

2 cups almond milk

1 banana

1 handfull of blueberries, about 1/2 a cup

1 TBS chia seeds

1 handfull baby spinach, about 1/2 a cup

2 TBS raw almond butter

2 medjool dates, seeds removed

4 kale leaves, stems removed, I like purple kale

Place everything in a blender and blend until very smooth. I have an inexpensive blender and blend for about 90 seconds while upping the blend speed every ten seconds or so.

This smoothie can be made with water. Replace the 2 cups of almond milk with 2 cups of water and add a third date.
