Energizing Green Breakfast Smoothie

Photo and recipe inspired by The Kitchn.com

This energizing green breakfast smoothie recipe (found on The Kitchn.com) is a great treat to help jump-start your morning. It has simple ingredients (bananas, coconut water, and almond butter), but also has added nutrients like flax oil and leafy greens. We added our touch to the Superpower Morning Smoothie recipe below, suggesting 2-3 leaves of living butter lettuce for a fresh boost. Here’s what you’ll need to start your morning right:

Superpower Morning Smoothie:

  • 1 large handful roughly chopped kale, spinach, collards, or a combination
  • 2-3 leaves living butter lettuce
  • 1 frozen peeled banana, cut into several pieces
  • 1 cup pure unsweetened coconut water
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon flax oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Blend, enjoy!
