Balanced Breakfast Smoothie

Balanced Breakfast Smoothie

This smoothie is good morning post-practice/workout fuel, and it carries me until the end of lunchtime teaching. It’s tridoshic and has a touch of everything: anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatories, detoxicants, protein, minerals, fiber and water regulators.

  • ­­­­Handful of spinach
  • 1-2 leaves kale or chard
  • 2 sprigs parsley
  • 5-7 mint leaves
  • 1-inch cucumber slice
  • 1/3 cup blueberries
  • 3 figs
  • Scant cup watermelon
  • 2 Tbs rolled oats
  • Protein power
  • Splash almond milk or water
  • Greens powder (optional)
  • Cinnamon (optional)

Blend and enjoy!

    Looking through your smoothies, this one looks great!! I may need to substitute an item, can you tell me were to get greens powder?

      We have a Whole Food and grocery co-op that sells brands that good. I like to have at least two on hand to alternate. If you cannot find them, you could always go online. One of the brands that I like and that is readily available online, is Amazing Greens. I use their original Green Superfood and their detox variations. I tend to stay away from the flavored ones. The same goes for protein powders.
