This smoothie is great for you and it tastes good too. Blackberries are amazing for you and they are a great source of Vitamin K which helps you absorb calcium. The cinnamon adds a little spice!!

1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
1 cup coconut water or unsweetened almond/coconut/hemp/rice milk
1Tbs ground flax or chia seeds
1⁄8 tsp cinnamon
1 handful of spinach

Tbs raw, organic honey or stevia to taste (optional)

I like this one because the texture from the hazelnuts overpower the taste of the spinach… you can’t even taste it!

2 scoops of Vanilla Protein Powder
9 oz. water
1 ½ – 2 handfuls of fresh spinach
6-8 hazelnuts
6-8 ice cubes

I love this Kale smoothie with Banana and Pineapple

1/2cup coconut milk
2 cups stemmed and chopped kale or spinach
1 1/2 cups chopped pineapple (about 1/4 medium pineapple)
1 ripe banana, chopped

Combine the coconut milk, ½ cup water, the kale, pineapple, and banana in a blender and puree until smooth, about 1 minute, adding more water to reach the desired consistency.
