When I start my morning with a healthy breakfast I feel ready to take on the day and whatever life throws at me.  To me, a healthy breakfast means a more productive day, a higher self-esteem, and more willpower.  I’m always on the go, so sometimes it’s tough to find healthy breakfast options that I can eat/drink in the car or take to work.

I found this green smoothie recipe and modified it to my liking, and now I probably drink it 3 times a week because I can’t get enough!  I love that I get a serving of both fruits and vegetables and protein all in one drink.  It’s also easy to put in a thermos (or any large cup) and take on the go.  Here is the recipe that I use, but feel free to modify it to your liking.  After all, healthy eating (or drinking) should be enjoyed, not forced!

In a blender, mix:

  • 2 cups spinach

  • 1 banana

  • 1/4 cup of greek yogurt (I typically use chobani 0% plain greek yogurt)

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 4 large ice cubes

Blend until smooth and enjoy!  This recipe makes one smoothie.
