We think green smoothies get a bad rap sometimes. They don’t have to be grassy smoothies that don’t keep you full for very long. They can be creamy, delicious, and so full of nutrients that you’re fueled for hours and hours. That’s why we packed this smoothie full of all the good-for-you greens you need PLUS lots of energy-sustaining ingredients that will give you real, powerful energy.
We used Açaí (your choice which type) for its omegas and antioxidants, water for hydration, almond butter for happy fats and protein, chia seeds for fiber, protein, protein and hydration, cinnamon for blood sugar, dates for iron, fiber, and natural sweetness, and spinach for an extra boost of iron and antioxidants!
If you want, you can add a handful of coconut shreds or cacao, too! If you don’t have cinnamon, try a fresh herb like mint or basil.
