Good morning smoothie

2 servings (12-16 oz each)

Ingredients

  • 1c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1c chocolate almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1c frozen organic berries
  • 1 scoop chocolate Sun Warrior plant-based protein
  • 1/2c 2% greek yogurt (we use 2% Fage)
  • handful of ice, add more as needed

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender, blend until smooth, and serve.
  2. If the smoothie is too thick, add more almond milk. If it’s too thin, add more ice.

This smoothie is a great place to hide vegetables—add in some spinach or 1/2 avocado and everyone will still love the flavor. Sometimes I also add a dash of agave.

Almond milk is a great source of Calcium—1 c of almond milk provides 45% of your daily needs compare to whole milk, which only provides 30%.
