Energy, Naturally.

We’ve been getting a lot of requests lately for breakfasts that aren’t eggs. More people than we could have ever imagined have egg allergies and breakfast for them can sometimes be limited. That, and most people need a break from eating eggs every morning!

So we decided to take the smoothie route. Not everyone on a low carb diet enjoys smoothies because they are usually fruit based. Not ours! There’s not a single fruit in our green breakfast smoothie… unless you count avocado. Each ingredient lends not only to the gorgeous green smoothie’s color but provides necessary nutrients to kick start your day. Think celery is just a filler vegetable? Think again:

  • Celery: full of calcium, sodium, copper, magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium.  It contains fatty acids and vitamins including vitamin A, C, E, D, B6, B12 and vitamin K as well as thiamine, riboflavin, folic acid and fiber.1
  • Cucumber: with all its vitamin K, B vitamins, copper, potassium, vitamin C, and manganese, it can help you to avoid nutrient deficiencies that are widespread among those eating a typical American diet.2
  • Avocado: full of vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin E, small amounts of magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, zinc, phosphorous, vitamin A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin).3
  • Spinach: vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K1, folic acid, iron, calcium plus several other vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, and vitamins B6, B9 and E.4
  • Chia seeds: contain lots of fiber, protein, fat: 9 grams (5 of which are Omega-3s), calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, they also contain a decent amount of zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B2.5
  • Coconut oil: where do the benefits stop? Check out our full article on the benefits of coconut oil.
  • Matcha: adds a boost of slow-releasing, steady caffeine and is packed with antioxidants including the powerful EGCg, fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins. It also provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium.6

The ingredients together make a powerhouse of a drink and can be whipped together in just a few minutes. Try it out and let us know what you think!

    Can you reccomend an alternative to the almond oil?

      Hi Kay, there’s no almond oil in this recipe. Do you mean coconut oil? Feel free to use a tbsp of butter to get almost the same fat content, or some walnut oil if you can find it. Otherwise, I would really recommend getting some coconut oil. It has tremendous health benefits. You can find some here for a pretty affordable price: http://amzn.to/2mMpPrt

      We recommend investing in a small kitchen scale. It makes cooking and baking so much easier!

    The chia seeds are listed in the recipe but aren’t used. Are they just a garnish or do you put them in the blender. If they aren’t a garnish only, how much do I use in the recipe?

      We used just a bit as a garnish!
