Morning Smoothie 1-14-13

  • 1-2 Kale leaves raw
  • 1 celery stalks raw
  • 1 carrot stick raw
  • 1 Fuji apple
  • 1/4 cup fresh/frozen blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 4 raw almonds
  • 2 raw brazil nuts
  • 1-2 tsp powdered spirulina
  • 1-2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • 10 dashes of ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/3 or 1/4 cup heavy cream

Hardware:
Vitamix or Blend Tec blender are touted as the best. I can’t afford a new blender to I’m using the one we got off of a wedding gift gift card. Ours is a Cuisanart blender from William Sonoma I think.

Just blend till you get it all into a foamy liquid. It’s better than juicing because it includes the fiber and all the nutrients the plant has to offer. Blending predigest the food so you don’t have to expend energy breaking it down.

It makes 1 sippy cup for my youngest son, 1 insulated bottle with ice, and 1 glass worth. Drink the glass in the morning for breakfast, and the insulated bottle for 2pm lunch.
