Superfood smoothie

Today I wanted to share my favorite smoothie. I make these several times per week. I don’t follow a strict recipe, and I generally just use whatever I have on hand. This is my “green monster” smoothie, but I sometimes replace the greens with frozen berries for a berry smoothie.

Today I used the following:
-1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
-1/2 of a frozen banana
-1 handful of fresh greens (this was a kale/spinach mix, but I frequently use just spinach–you can’t taste the spinach I promise!)
-1 TB chia seeds
-1/2 c crushed ice
-1/2 to 1 c. Almond milk (as desired for consistency)
-1/3 c. Vanilla Greek yogurt (optional-it’s fine w/o it)

I just throw everything in the blender & this is what I get:

Yummy! Quick, easy & healthy breakfast to go. It only takes me about 2 minutes & I’m out the door.
