So excited to share a little something different with you today! I’m on my third round of Whole 30 this month (on Day 5 and feeeeeling good) and this green breakfast smoothie has been my go-to every morning. It is the most convenient and time-effective (and delicious, obvs) way of getting your nutrients in. So without further ado, check out the full recipe after the jump!

My freezer is quite literally filled with frozen bananas – they make such a difference! Your smoothies end up tasting so much thicker and creamier. Grab one frozen banana, a heaping handful of spinach, about a cup of coconut milk, 1/3 cup or so of frozen fruit (I love frozen mango, pineapple and strawberries), plus a couple wedges of lemon to squeeze in (extra dose of Vitamin C and it brings out the flavour of all the other ingredients!).

So because I’m exceptionally stupid, the first time I tried to use a frozen banana I tried…peeling it (don’t make fun of me, pretty sure it was Monday okaaaay). Needless to say, it froze my hands slash was impossible to do. New and much smarter technique: section the frozen banana into threes then just slice off the peel. GENIUS!

Add in all your ingredients (and squeeze a couple of lemon wedges in!) and add maybe a cup or so of filtered water as needed to achieve the consistency you like. Blend it all together.

Add a touch of bee pollen on top (more about its benefits here), or you could add soaked chia seeds, açaí berries, etc, whatever you’d like.

    A whole 30 is too much for me, but cutting unnecessary processed foods and grains from my diet has been a huge part of my weight loss in the last few months. Just getting rid of empty calories is super important.

    Oh Yum! I drink green smoothies almost everyday too! I peel and chunky-slice my bananas just before freezing. I keep them in a tupperware container, and break off/scoop out however much I want for my smoothie.

    You're looking fab, Alex. I've been on a major health kick lately… doing the Candida diet, my health has been bad. So bad!! We'll have to swap notes next time we see each other!! Can't wait to try this, and yup me too… so many frozen bananas in my freezer. Haha! 😉 xoxo

    Here's my daily ritual. I could mix my drink with a smoothie, but I like my smoothies more fruity, so I prefer to mix 2+ tablespoons of Green supplements into about a quart of water. I just drink it for about an hour every day after work.
