For the past few months I have switched up my morning routine quite a bit. Morning coffee used to be what I looked forward to. Something about sipping hot coffee with caramel creamer and a hot pastry or something sweet was so enticing to this night owl to finally crawl out of bed. The only problem is it never really gave me energy. When I HAD to change my diet with my pregnancy with my daughter last year (when I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes… yea…), I started noticing how different I felt. It was and has been life changing.
I started hearing about all these smoothies, first from the book Clean and then it sort of blew up in my face on Pinterest. Needless to say I had to try it. I still drink coffee, but never in the morning and usually iced, more as a treat than a getter-upper.
- 1 cold or frozen banana
- 4-5 strawberries
- 2 leaves of kale
- ½ cup honey greek yogurt
- ⅓ cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
- some crushed ice
- I put all my ingredients in my Magic Bullet and mix away! It makes the perfect size serving for one smoothie.
Lately I have been on a green smoothie kick and I am loving this one!
