Smooth Moves

Hi guys! Jess here, sharing one of my favorite healthy snacks/meals: smoothies. I love to have a smoothie for breakfast or as a midmorning snack. It’s a refreshing start to my day and the flavor combinations are endless! My go to smoothie is banana, spinach or kale, frozen mangoes and peaches, flax seeds and hemp protein powder. I’ve been on a mission lately to mix it up a little more; here are my favorite smoothies lately. For all recipes just add ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1 cup coconut milk or almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 heaping handful of spinach
  • 2-3 dates, pitted
  • 1 cup ice cubes
