I have been on the lookout for a morning drink that will not only boost my energy and health, but also actually taste super yummy. This smoothie is perfect for those in that similar search. This super simple recipe is something that my brother, a personal trainer, created and really stands by. When I first saw what went into it, I’ll be honest, I was pretty hesitant. But I swear to you it is WAY tastier then I ever thought possible.
Blueberries are considered a superfood and have an abundance of antioxidants that help protect your body against heart disease, cancer, and other diseases. They also are anti-inflammatory along with being high in potassium and Vitamin C making them super recommended with doctors and nutritionists.
Another superfood ingredient in this smoothie is the spinach. I know, spinach isn’t always the most desired food, especially in drinking form. But TRUST ME, you really can’t even taste it and it is so incredible to know all the nutrients I’m getting from it. Spinach is rich with Vitamans A, C, K and iron. It can even lower your stress, increase your eye health and help fight against blood pressure levels.
It’s a perfect way to start your morning right and to get a head start on all the nutrients our bodies crave throughout the day!
