The Gimme Da Green Smoothie is a superb way to top off a breakfast meal. Not to mention it also is a great way to supercharge your body with awesome nutrients. The real kick here is the “non” green ingredients that help provide the sweet goodness for drinking.
- 4 to 6 spinach leaves
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 1/4 cup cranberries
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp wheat germ
- 1 tbsp oat bran
- 1 tbsp ground flax seed
- 1 scoop of whey protein powder (optional if not using Shakeology)
- 1 scoop of Shakeology (recommended)
Put all the ingredients into the blender. Let blend for several minutes until smooth. Add several ice cubes and blend for a slightly cooler and thicker smoothie.
This will yield two glasses of tasty smoothie. It’s so good you won’t want to share, but be nice.
This is not intended to be a meal replacement.
Cue the screaming guitars and slam! You’ve got an amazing power drink for breakfast!

* Organic ingredients are desirable. This will often mean being seasonal with the ingredients. Fresh is best. Local honey is ideal.
