|Fruits & Spinach Breakfast Smoothie|
Ingredients: banana, orange, apple, watermelon, frozen berries, spinach.
It would be ideal if you have a Vitamix because it is so powerful that you can drop the entire watermelon in for processing. I use a Cuisinart blender but still easy enough-- just remove the watermelon skin & apple cores.
Step 1: (Optional) Add a whey protein powder and/or chia seeds for extra nutrients. Whey protein fights fat and builds muscle while the chia seeds contain Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, protein, fiber and calcium.
Step 2: Drop everything into the blender. Process and drink. You can mix it up and choose different ingredients for different days. This is also great for a light lunch if you had a heavy breakfast.
