Smoothies are one of my favorite breakfast and snack options, especially as the weather starts to warm up (we’re finally getting some 60 & 70 degree days here in Massachusetts after a very snowy winter!). They’re convenient and so versatile – you can mix and match tons of fruits, veggies, and other nutritious ingredients into an easy to drink smoothie in just a few minutes.
Today, Brittany, fellow blogger at My Mama Journey, is here to share one of her favorite smoothie recipes. I can’t wait to give this one a try!
Spinach and Starfruit Smoothie Recipe
What’s the best way to cleanse your palette after a busy and treat filled Easter a little over a week ago? Start your day off with a delicious smoothie, filed with all sorts of fresh ingredients.
- ¼ cup of white plain yogurt (probiotic if possible)
- ¼ tsp of chia seeds
- ¼ cup of pineapple
- 1 whole starfruit
- ¼ cup of blackberries
- ¼ cup of spinach
- 2 tbsps of large flake oats
- ½ cup of coconut milk (fresh) or ½ cup of ice
Once you have added all your ingredients into your smoothie cup (Nutribullet is a hit in our household), blend until you have reached your desired consistency.
If you have the time or are feeling creative, top with a sprig of mint leaf or basil! “YUMMY In My Tummy!” (as my daughter would say).
