I make breakfast smoothies every morning before work, so I’m always looking for new flavor varieties to mix things up day to day. I also just so happened to receive my first vita-mix blender for Christmas this year. Let me just say, it makes a world of difference. I know these blenders carry a $400+ price tag, but they are worth every penny. Not only is it a powerful professional quality blender, but it’s a lot quieter than our old household blender. And when you have shared walls with your neighbors, that is a huge plus! You don’t want to be the neighbor waking up the whole block trying to blend a frozen banana at 7 am. Needless to say I’m obsessed, and I’m sure my neighbors are too!
1 cup almond milk
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
3 fresh strawberries
2 big handfuls of fresh spinach
1/2 tsp chia seeds, optional
Layer your ingredients for blending ease– I typically layer them: almond milk, chia seeds, fruit, spinach.
Blend until ingredients are broken down and the smoothie has a smooth consistency. Pour into your favorite smoothie glass and enjoy!
