The combination of 24/7 breastfeeding sessions, a very active toddler and dog who loves to run means I am basically on my feet from the moment I get up until about 8 or 9pm. Enter the green smoothie: the most sustaining and nourishing part of my day. I have been religiously drinking one of these almost everyday for a couple months now and it has really made a huge difference on my energy levels and my overall mood. It kick starts my day with a large amount of plant-based protein, tons of super vitamins and minerals and dietary fibre.
big handful of clean kale or spinach or swiss chard or a tsp of green barley powder
3 tsp pea protein powder
1 cup almond milk
1 organic banana
1 tbs peanut butter or almond butter
drizzle or honey or maple syrup
a few ice cubes
Blend until smooth
So good. So easy. And exactly what my body needs right now.
