Our Every Morning Smoothie

Updated: Jul 7


Nearly every morning, Ryan and I have the same exact smoothie. Granted, depending on who made it, the portions change. Ryan fills the blender to the brim with kale, and I like to add more blueberries and almond butter [coconut oil is a great option as well!]. We drink if after our workout with our supplements.

It's a great balance of protein, fat, and carbs. This is where we sneak in some extra servings of fruits and veggies.

On most days, these are the portions for 2 people:

- 8 oz almond milk

- 1 cup of blueberries

- 1 big spoonful of almond butter

- 2 TBS of chia seeds

- 2 servings of protein powder

- 2 handfuls of kale or spinach

Every now and then we'll throw in half a frozen banana or some random veggie (cucumber, carrots, broccoli, or cauliflower are all great options!)

What's your morning breakfast routine?

There are a LOT of poor quality protein powders out there with harmful ingredients. There are only a few brands that I both enjoy and trust. It's important to be mindful of what's actually in the protein powders you purchase. 0g of sugar is usually a sure sign that there are harmful ingredients.

Any whey protein that is not grass-fed likely means that the powder contains GMO ingredients and/or antibiotics and hormones.

I prefer to get plant based protein powders with high quality nutrients and a VERY low sugar and carb count.

The best one that I use everyday is a daily liver detox packed with quality sources vitamins & minerals. It’s practitioner/medical grade: Thorne Mediclear I also recommend that people consume collagen protein, as it’s responsible for healing gut issues, restoring skin elasticity, and providing the body with building blocks for our connective tissue. I take this every day as well:
