Recipe: Avocado banana breakfast smoothie

Sorry, sorry. Technology and I — we’re just not friends. I tried to post this recipe for you guys yesterday but [insert chain of excuses here]. As I mentioned on Instagram, I’ve been drinking this smoothie after I workout in the mornings and it gives me so much energy and is filled with nutrients. And it doesn’t hurt that it takes two minutes to make. Just mix the following together in a blender:

1/2 an avocado
1 banana
1 tsp ginger, raw/grated
1 tsp honey
1 cup brewed green tea
1/2 cup of spinach
1 tsp of Carrington Farms organic chia and flaxseed mix (optional)

Avocado breakfast smoothie

Avocado is a good source of fiber and vitamins like B and E. The green tea helps jump start your metabolism, and regulates your glucose, while the ginger helps strengthen your immune system and aids in digestion (and gives a nice kick to the smoothie…if you know anything about me, I love ginger in EVERYTHING. It’s a good problem). Spinach adds zinc, protein, and vitamins, and finally, I like to add chia and flax seeds as another source of Omega 3s and fiber. Carrington Farms somehow telepathically knew I’m always stocked up on these, and coconut oil and sent me easy to use on-the-go packets which I’m now obsessed with (especially since I can take them on my travels). I put them on everything, but more to come on that soon.

Any of you going to try the smoothie? Let me know what you think!
