Being a full-time mom, wife, food scientist and blogger is so fulfilling, yet can get hectic juggling all of the incredible gifts that I have. To stay active and energized for my family and me, I always commit to two things each day; eating a healthy breakfast and exercising (no matter how little or intense).

How to Make a Green Smoothie

Today I am sharing my ULTIMATE super green smoothie recipe that I make each morning to get the cylinders firing. My son calls it “mommy’s super juice,” and it sure is. Let me tell you why and show you how.

Greens

Baby kale and spinach are delicate and tender, and the earthy and bitter notes are not as strong for the smoothie. One cup of kale is packed with about 3 grams of protein, 2.5 grams of fiber, vitamins A, C, K, folate, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and zinc, omega-3 fatty acids and the phytonutrients lutein and zeaxanthin. Spinach is rich in iron and an excellent source of vitamins K, A, C, and folic acid.

Matcha Green Tea

The ground green tea leaves can contain up to 10 to 15 times more overall nutrients, and 100 times more antioxidants compared to traditional green tea. The antioxidants from different catechins help to protect against free radicals and strengthen your immune system.

Protein

Greek yogurt and almonds (nuts and milk) add a boost of protein, so you stay satiated until the next meal. Yogurt also contains probiotics which daily consumption has been shown to help to increase the immune system and promote a healthy digestive tract.

Fruit

Bananas add a light natural sweetness and creamy texture to the green smoothie. It’s also a good source of potassium, electrolytes, and contains prebiotic fibers that aid in digestion.

Natural Sweetener

To balance the bitterness from the greens and tea, two teaspoons of a sweetener is added to the smoothie. Look for a zero-calorie and a stevia-based sweetener. It’s the perfect swap for sugar, one packet of sweetener provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar.

All of these nutritional powerhouse ingredients get added to your blender, and in less than 5 minutes you have a cold, creamy and delicious smoothie ready to drink at home or on-the-go.
