This morning I went to the local farmer’s market, where they had incredible organic fruits and veggies available. I stocked up on some of season’s best: fresh, plump blueberries, sweet pineapple, and fresh kale.
Since I’m still not much of a breakfast person, I created the following recipe for a healthy morning shake pumped full of nutrients. My hope is that the shake will give me enough natural energy that I can break my morning coffee habit [processed creamer + splenda = bad!] and get myself to a point where I’m eating as clean as possible.
Here’s the recipe I crafted – delicious, sweet, and refreshing!
- 1 cup ice
- 1 cup vanilla, unsweetened Almond milk
- 2/3 cup fresh blueberries
- 1/2 cup chopped pineapple
- 2 tbsp organic flax seed
- 2 tbsp organic chia seed
- 2 leafs of kale, rinsed and chopped
Combine all ingredients in blender and blend for two minutes on high. Serve immediately.
You can’t even taste the kale over the sweetness of the pineapple and the seeds add fiber and protein otherwise absent from a fruit shake.
I hope to have this daily, though I might substitute blueberries for frozen raspberries once mine run out. 🙂
Bon appetit, my friends!
