Well, the holidays are over and for some, it’s time for a reset. If you don’t feel like doing a juice or soup cleanse, no problem – they’re not for everyone. Instead, a “reset” can simply be enjoying healthy foods, like enjoying our bone broth bar. For me, a reset always includes a smoothie: whenever I feel gross after a long weekend or holiday, or my body is simply craving a large influx of fresh fruits and veggies, I always start my day off with a smoothie. This January, it’s my winter green smoothie.
My smoothies differ from summer to winter. In the summer, I load up on fresh fruits in my smoothies, like fresh grapefruit or berries. In the winter, I usually go for frozen produce like blueberries and spinach or make my warm smoothie recipe (it sounds weird, but don’t knock it till you try it). During the post-holiday season, here’s my favourite winter green smoothie recipe.
Winter Green Smoothie
This refreshing smoothie will give you a good boost in the mornings. Also, if you want extra creaminess, feel free to throw in a 1/2 chunk of frozen banana or 1/2 an avocado.
- ½ cup frozen blueberries
- 1 tsp size chunk of ginger
- ½ cup water (feel free to add more or less – it depends on how thick you like your smoothies)
- ¼ cup spinach or 1 kale leaf
- ¼ cup frozen cauliflower
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ lemon
To make, simply blend on high for 2 to 3 minutes until fully blended and enjoy!
