My Favorite Morning Smoothie Formula

Prepping veggies can be a pain in the butt.

My solution: save time with smoothies. Throw your veggies in the blender. Way easier. Add a little fruit to help with taste.

This smoothie is meant for breakfast. Loaded with healthy fat, protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, it fuels your body for the day. Plus, it never gets boring. You can change it every day!

When the organic vegetable or fruit you want is not local or in season, buy frozen. Frozen produce is less expensive and is frozen immediately after harvest, preserving nutrient content and flavor. Most of our grocery store food isn’t local; the average food product is harvested before fully ripened and travels about 1,500 miles to get to your plate. During this time, fresh foods often lose vitamin and mineral content.

I like to eyeball the ingredients, but I did my best to come up with amounts and ran a test on it. If it’s not quite to your liking, add more of whatever you think it needs to taste good (like more fruit or nuts). Alternatively, suck it up and know that you’re consuming something that is incredibly beneficial for your body. Your palate will adjust over time!

Finally, if you’re missing an ingredient (especially the ones at the end of the recipe)…don’t sweat it. These are just guidelines. 

Ingredients (ALL ORGANIC!!):

  • 1-1.5 cups water
  • 2-3 big handfuls of greens (or 1.5 cups frozen greens) (spinach, beet greens, kale, lettuce, dandelion greens, or swiss chard)
  • <1 cup frozen or ripe fruit (berries, orange, kiwi, apple, melon)
  • 1-1.5 cups frozen or fresh vegetable (beets, cauliflower, cucumber, zucchini, peas, carrots, celery, fennel)
  • 2-3 Tbsp raw, unsalted seeds (flax, pumpkin, chia, hemp, sunflower, pumpkin, sesame)
  • 1 scoop high-quality protein powder
  • 15-30 tablets of Spirulina or Chlorella (optional)
  • 1 tsp Maca Powder or Camu Camu powder (optional)


Put all base ingredients and any optional extras in a blender. Blend until smooth and add extra liquid if needed. That’s it!
