Strawberry Chia & Spinach Sunrise Smoothie
I’m back on my smoothie streak!
There are days where I like to make a hodgepodge of greens and fruits in a smoothie, or day’s where I crave a simple and straightforward smoothie. And I was feeling more simple when I made this…Creamy strawberry flavors with protein packed spinach – I will literally eat this smoothie every day because it’s so dang good!
–>CHIA SEEDS – for fiber and omega-3’s.
–>FRESH SPINACH – for zinc and protein.
–>ALMOND MILK – for a higher source of protein.
–>GREEK YOGURT – for calcium.
–> BANANA & STRAWBERRIES – for all those vibrant colors and nutrients that they both carry – and HELLO FLAVAAAA. ?
Before making this, I had just gotten back from the gym and was feeling more sleepy & drained than usual. I had been eating healthy foods/what I usually eat, but I wasn’t eating much color. Therefore, really wasn’t feeling the best I knew my body could feel. So after craaavving, literally, a strawberry smoothie I decided it was time to give my body a boost with replenishing nutrients.
SIDE NOTE: The more colorful the food – the MORE nutrients and vitamins you’re getting. ?
I absolutely LOVE this smoothie and also being able to sneak some greens in without having that beautiful color & flavor change.
