Smoothies are the ultimate lazy girl’s guide to getting healthy. They’re packed with fruits that are full of antioxidants, still have great fiber benefit, are hydrating so good for your skin, and have a ton of nutrients from fruits and veggies! I do a ton of breakfast smoothies and sometimes I’ll even do some for lunch or dinner. Below I have listed out a few of my favorites. All recipes have the option to include or exclude protein powder and flax seed as nutrition needs vary. Flax seeds are an excellent source of essential fatty acids!
To prep smoothies, I make resealable Ziploc smoothie bags that I label. You will have to add certain things the day of- like any powders and coconut water, regular water, or almond milk. I listed below some of my favorite smoothies to prep!
