In honor of the hot temperatures and Independence Day, I decided to do a patriotic smoothie blend this morning that is quite refreshing and delicious! This is definitely a good way to kick off the festivities, especially since I will be on “smoothie vacation” the rest of the week!
Today’s concoction looks purple but is chalk full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. It is naturally sweet with a hint of a tang from the berries. I made it this morning in my NutriBullet and for my 32oz bottle and it took me less than 5 minutes from start to finish!
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup strawberries
1/3 cup blackberries
1/8 cup coconut chips (unsweetened from Trader Joe’s)
1/4 cup beets (I buy the frozen pack from Trader Joe’s)
12 oz of coconut water
8 oz of almond milk
1 scoop protein
1 scoop collagen powder
1 scoop of Power Greens
1 tbsp Maca powder
I really can tell that these smoothies have been helpful in my day to day life and in my health journey. Between, and yes this is oversharing but we are all family here, being more regular to the increase in energy to the curbed food cravings, I really look forward to my morning smoothie.
Do you have any plans for the 4th of July? Any go-to recipes for the holiday that I should try? Are you going to give this recipe a try?? Comment below!
