Kick Start Your Day With An Energizing Smoothie

I mapped out all the reasons why Green Smoothies are a part of my daily nutrition plan in the post “Why Green Smoothies Rock”.

Quick recap….Green smoothies provide a concentrated amount of fresh greens in quick and convenient drink. Plus blending greens and fruits together breaks down the cells of these plants which improves digestibility and makes it easier for your body to assimilate.

#1 Benefit- Increased Energy

These all natural smoothies provide a powerful boost of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients without bogging down your digestive system. Drinking your greens in the most optimum form for your digestibility and nutrient absorption leaves you feeling more vibrant and energized!

Incorporating more greens and natural foods has been a goal of mine – especially since the start of my pregnancy. A great starter recipe can be found above. I typically use a cup or so of water, coconut milk or hemp milk for my liquid, then add a couple cups of greens, a fruit and a scoop of protein based powder – right now using Veganique.

Simple yet flexible to create so many tasty recipes.

To make sure I have all bases covered, I turn to those who are experts…including vegetarian nutrition expert, Kardena Pauza.

“Maybe you’re feeling sluggish or you’re feeling tired more often, maybe overall your digestive system feels impaired or you’re getting bloated more often, maybe you have put on extra weight in the form of fat, maybe you don’t have the mental clarity you used to, or your skin is not as youthful looking as it used to be, or maybe you are simply feeling more congested or have a “stuffy” nose all the time.

Whatever the reason, I guarantee that 90% of these symptoms are from a build up of excess toxins in your body.” ~ Kardena

    Thanks. I’m supposed to cook for my new vegetarian girlfriend this weekend and have absolutely no idea what to make! I found a loadlots of recipes at this vegetarian recipe site but with so mnay to choose from I just got confused. Do you have any favorites youself, like .. the tastiest vegetarian recipe, ever, or something?! Thanks in advance! I’m so clueless about this vegetarian stuff

    Never thought about adding spinach or better yet any leafy greens to a smoothie. This will be something I will try. This year I’ve become a stay at home mom and getting a 1st grader out the door and having a 4 and 2 year old home all day really runs my energy low. So this may give me the kick start I need. Thanks for the ideas.

  3. Heather says:

    Do you have any other combos to share?

  4. Rachel says:

    Thanks Holly, I love my morning smoothies and always add spinach into the mix. Have never tried a complete Green Smoothie before and would never have thought of adding Avocado – will have to give it a go. Looks very nutritious. Thanks for all your wonderful tips and advice. Rache :)

    I added a green smoothie a day in my meal plan about a year ago and you’re so right about feeling lighter and more energized! I even have people ask me what I’m doing differently to my skin – nothing but feeding it more nutrients :) My favorite is an apple or pear, blueberry, spinach with either a water base or almond milk. So many combos though – this summer I’ve been loving a peach or nectarine, berry (whatever I have on hand), spinach and watermelon smoothie with a water base. Yum! Playing around with the combos is half the fun!
