Cardiologist’s Favorite Breakfast Smoothie Recipe
Start off the day on the right foot. You have heard this suggestion many times. But what does this idiom mean?
To me, it means getting some morning sunshine and having a nutritious and delicious breakfast smoothie.
The morning sun tells primes your brain and body for the day ahead.
The smoothie is to nourish.
Both sun and nourishment are key to health for children and adults.
How to Make the Smoothie
Get out the blender. Mix these organic components in any combination. Each day is different. Amounts are different. The smoothie is almost impossible to screw up.
- Water, coconut water or homemade nut milk
- Kale, spinach, dandelion, beets, carrots, and/or sprouts
- Fresh or frozen fruit such as berries, cherries, banana, apple etc.
- Avocado- perfect way to boost fiber, magnesium, potassium and vitamin C
- Nut butter, hemp, chia, or flax seeds and/or fresh nuts/seeds
- Spirulina/chlorella- we call this Superfood
- Heart Beet (if not using fresh beets)
- Raw honey or organic maple syrup
- Raw cacao powder or try our Daily Defense powder.
- Organic India psyllium husk powder on Amazon or get a free bottle with our Daily Greens. Psyllium is a fantastic pre-biotic source of fiber. Learn more about the health benefits of psyllium.
Again, you cannot screw this up and each day is different based on what is available. If you prefer a cold drink, use cold items including frozen fruit. Frozen fruit is still loaded with nutrients and is a cheaper way to source your organic fruit.
There are many other organic powders you can put into your smoothie. Find what works for you and what you enjoy. Also, you can use dairy in the above if it is raw milk.
Added oil from coconut, walnut, or almond is a great way to boost fat content.
