Green Power Breakfast Smoothie

Breakfast is important for feeling like a champion, and I absolutely can’t go without this ever important meal. Smoothies are great because they take barely any time to make and are so easy to pour into a mason jar and go. Once you get the swing of it, I’m sure you’ll be making up your own smoothie recipes on the fly. 

Handful of greens (kale, spinach, collard greens, you name it. Buy a variety and mix it up often) 
1/2 avocado 
1 Tbsp of chia seeds
1 tsp of fresh ginger 
Half a handful of fresh or frozen sweet fruit (some favorites are: mangos, pineapple, bananas, pear, apple) 
Just a bit of water or coconut water 
Fresh mint (this adds a nice touch)

Simply add all the ingredients above into a blender, blend and enjoy.
