Favorite Friday’s – Smoothie Recipe

Favorite Friday's - Smoothie RecipeThis week The Perfectionist Moms favorite smoothie recipe is revealed, I am calling it Very Berry Blast!  Sounds like something you could get at Smoothie King or Jamba Juice right, in fact, it could be for all I know! I have to tell you it is awesome. I have learned some great tricks for making these even when it is cold out and I really don’t want one. The smoothie has become my new morning drink and while I miss my coffee more than my old waist line, this is a great alternative. Bonus! My EXTREMELY picky eater often drinks at least a third of mine so I have started making them a bit bigger than the recommended serving size.

Inside the Very Berry Blast –

  • 1 1/2 Cups of Mixed frozen antioxidant berries (pomegranates, blueberries, cherries, raspberries and strawberries)
  • One Whole Banana
  • One big handful of Spinach
  • Coconut or Almond Milk
  • Two scoops of non-sweetened greek yogurt
  • If you need a little extra warmth add a tablespoon of peanut butter (really any nut butter) or cocoa powder (I don’t do this all the time but it does add extra richness)

Now the parts I add for the fertility benefits are extra. Honestly they give the smoothie a nice texture and are still super good for you no matter why you add them.

  • One tablespoon of Maca Root powder
  • One tablespoon of Flax Seed (finely ground)
  • Coconut Oil (just a little)
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey

  1. This smoothie sounds delicious and healthy. I haven’t heard of Maca Root powder. I will have to look that up!
