Everyday Berry Greens Smoothie

Everyday Berry Greens Smoothie

My smoothie doesn't have a pretty straw in it everyday, but on special occasions it does !

What I do have in my smoothies everyday are: Protein Powder, Super Greens + Probiotics.

Here's my super simple, go-to smoothie for everyday livin'



  • 1 scoop Protein Powder
  • 1/2 - 1 scoop Daily Greens
  • 1 scoop Daily Fiber Boost (optional)
  • Organic frozen mixed berries
  • 1" fresh chopped ginger
  • 1/2 cup Plain Coconut milk. (Or use Vanilla depending on your sweetness tolerance)
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons melted coconut oil (for healthy fats)


Blend + Enjoy! 


Smoothie Ingredients I love

Including protein powders, super greens + more.


Refreshing + SO good. Clean Green Mint Protein Smoothie

Refreshing + SO good. Clean Green Mint Protein Smoothie

This smoothie is so good and is my go-to. There are a bunch of ingredients included here - enjoy the power combo!

It has all of the things most of us want on any given morning.. it's refreshing (mint), protein rich (protein powder), healthy + stabilizing fats (coconut oil + almond butter), creamy goodness (almond milk), antioxidant rich super greens and it tastes like a mint chocolate chip milkshake. 


Ingredients for 2 servings

  • 2 scoops Protein Powder
  • 1 scoop super greens
  • 1/2 - 1 Banana -depending on how sweet you like your smoothie.
  • 1-2 tablespoons Almond Butter
  • 3/4 cup Plain almond or coconut milk. 
  • About 2 teaspoons melted coconut oil (for healthy fats)
  • 1 drop ginger essential oil (or an inch of fresh chopped ginger)
  • 1 drop spearmint essential oil (or a handful of fresh mint)
  • a handful of Cacao nibs (1-2 tablespoons)
  • A few ice cubes


As you would expect, the directions for making a smoothie are pretty simple. Except you want to watch out for when you add the coconut oil.

1. Add almond milk to bottom of blender

2. Add all other ingredients, except for coconut oil + ice cubes and blend.

3. If coconut oil is hardened, melt it. Then add to mixture + blend. (You don't want to add coconut oil to a really cold mixture, it will harden and you won't enjoy the texture.)

4. Optional - add ice cubes if you want a colder drink. 



health hack: mint supports natural weight loss + is great for digestion.

Like many herbs, mint contains an abundance of healing properties. Mint is a natural stimulant and it has been studied to support natural weight loss, reduce inflammation in the body, and even calm headaches. It's a great addition to a post-workout smoothie because the body is responding to natural free radicals in the body, and mint will naturally help to remove them and restore your body back to optimal health.




Creamy Vegan Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Creamy Vegan Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

There is absolutely no way to fight the creamy pumpkin craving of fall. So find a way to enjoy it! This is a super easy + delicious smoothie for you to enjoy.

  • 1.5 scoops Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 3/4 cup Vanilla almond milk. (Or use Plain depending on your sweetness tolerance)
  • 1 teaspoon Maple Syrup for sweetner. Or your sweetner of choice. 
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons melted coconut oil (for healthy fats)
  • 1/4 cup Pumpkin purée
  • 1 Tbsp. Pecans, Walnuts or any nut you have on hand
  • a Dash (or 2!) Pumpkin pie spice, to taste
  • Optional - 1 drop of ginger essential oil
  • A few ice cubes

You can probably find something like this in your grocery store. It's a simple blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg + allspice. I recommend choosing a real spice blend and not something loaded with sugar. You can always add a sweetner like honey or maple syrup if you want an extra sweet taste, but the premade mixes usually contain artificial color and sweetner. So avoid those when possible.


1. Add almond milk to the bottom of the smoothie so it's easy to blend all of the ingredients.

2. Add all ingredients except Ice and blend. If you want to add the ice - go ahead and add it once everything is already creamy.


Health Hack:

If you're an avid smoothie maker and drinker like me, keep all your smoothie ingredients handy if possible. Near your nutribullet (my favorite, light and easy to use blender) and keep your ingredients accesible so that making a smoothie is as easy as pie.

Get it.. pumpkin pie..

But for real - make it easy so that making the healthy choice is as EASY as possible :)

A couple times a week I also make smoothies at night while I'm making dinner and waiting for something to cook. I leave it in the blender for when I know I'm going to be coming home hungry in the morning, or I simply want to make my life easier. Then I simple re-blend. It's the best and sets your days up for success.
