What it looks like before you blend!

Have a craving for a milkshake or smoothie? This morning vitamin packed green shake should hit the spot. You can have this for breakfast or a little midnight snack {I usually fix this as a morning shake}.

The healthy ingredients are sure to keep you satisfied for hours and give your skin that healthy glow. Who knew you could pack out your blender with some great stuff – and reap the rewards?

You’ll crave this breakfast in the morning when you wake up. I feel like my kitchen is a Jamba Juice factory – this shake is seriously that good!

You will need: 2 tbsp. Greek yogurt, ½ cup water, 2 tsp. chia seeds, 1 tsp. flax seed, 1 scoop gluten free whey protein powder, 1 handful spinach and 1 generous handful of frozen fruit.

First, I generally place the yogurt in the blender – then add in the frozen fruit. Here is where you can get creative the sky’s the limit. You can put frozen blueberries in the shake – strawberries, pineapples, peaches {whatever really}. I typically buy this value pack of assorted mixed fruit at Costco – more bang for your buck.

Next add in the chia seeds, flax and 1 scoop of why protein powder. I get the vanilla flavored kind – this really adds a milkshake taste to the shake. Shove in a heaping handful of spinach and pour the water on top.

Blend your little green mixture together using the ‘milkshake’ setting on your blender. You may need to add in a little more water depending on the thickness and consistency you want for your shake.

There you go – a morning sweet green shake – packed with vitamins and will give you energy to go about your busy work day. Hooray for beautiful greens and naturally sweetened fruit!
