Green Power Breakfast Smoothie

Green Power Breakfast Smoothie

If you're like me, you're probably sick of hearing everyone say "New year, new you!". But seriously, if you're looking for a way to start your morning right, here's what you can do for a healthy green power breakfast smoothie to kick off the day in the new year. I received a coupon in the mail from Influenster for a complimentary pack of Rader Farms Fresh Start Morning to test and review. I was not compensated for this and the opinions and statements below are my own. This is a pack of frozen fruit and veggies picked at the peak of the season and frozen to ensure freshness and quality.

I'm using the Daily Power Fusion pack with green apple, pineapple, kale, and broccoli.

On the package, there's instructions for a smoothie - 1 cup of the veggies and fruit + 1 cup of water and blend.

Here's what I used for my smoothie version:
1 cup of frozen fruits and veggies
1 cup of coconut water
1/2 a banana
2 tablespoons of chia seed
1 tablespoon of flax seed
BLEND! - I prefer to use my magic bullet because it's a nice single serving that also doubles as a cup that I can take to go with me and easy to clean.

Some notes and modification options
Just remember, you can use any combo of fruits and veggies you like. You can also sub the coconut water for regular water or even almond milk. The flax seed provides fiber, and chia seeds provide protein, fiber and antioxidants. I like to add a spoonful greek yogurt to my smoothies also for extra protein, but when I do, I add some honey or agave to add some sweetness to balance out the tart flavor of the yogurt. The fruits and veggies in this Fresh Start pack itself are very "vegetabley" on their own, I think primarily because of the broccoli, that's why I add the banana to help balance that flavor. Let me know what you think and your favorite smoothie combos!

Happy Blending!

  1. Since I started taking Green energy drinks for breakfast every day, I stopped craving meat, and actually became a vegetarian without consciously trying. I've lost 10 lbs also without trying, and have more energy than before I started using it.
