Power Packed Breakfast Smoothie

smoothie ingredients

Running a skin care business takes a lot of energy, so to get my day started right I drink this delicious and nutritious breakfast smoothie that my husband and I have been making for years. I thought I would share the recipe with you, but feel free to change it up to include whatever fruits and vegetables you like. (Shhhh, don't tell my husband but I've even sneaked squash into it.)


Power Packed Breakfast Smoothie
2 servings

1 cup water
1/2 fresh avocado
1 cup chopped kale (frozen or fresh) [one of the most nutrient-rich vegetables on the planet!]
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup pureed pumpkin (either canned or fresh) [gives energy and helps relieve inflammation]
1/2 cup pomegranate juice [aids digestion]
1/2 cup kefir milk (or milk of choice)
1/2 cup frozen berries (blueberries, strawberries, etc)
1/4 cup liquid egg whites (or 3 tablespoons)
1 scoop pea or vegan protein powder
2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder [helps cognitive function]
2 teaspoons ground turmeric [helps relieve inflammation]
1 teaspoon ground ginger [helps the body absorb the turmeric; boosts immune system]
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon [helps control blood sugar and cholesterol]
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper [helps the body absorb the turmeric]

Place all ingredients into blender or large smoothie maker and blend until smooth then pour into glass and serve.

farragio hint:
I serve ours in large wine glasses. It's a special touch that makes starting a busy day just a little bit nicer.
