My favorite smoothie

I love this smoothie combo!  It is healthy, packed with tons of nutrients, and NO sugar.  It's great for breakfast on the go or a snack to tide you over til dinner.  I love using fresh almond milk that I make but regular milk, kefir, coconut milk or soy could also be used.  I make these for my girls too!

If you guys haven't tried Barlean's Omega Swirl then you are missing out!  I LOVE it.  You can buy it in Montrose at the Natural Grocers.  It comes in lots of flavors.  This one is strawberry banana.  I also have chocolate raspberry too.  You can also use it to flavor yogurts or drizzle over ice cream.  Omega-3 is good for sooo many things - read up on it if you aren't familiar with this essentail fatty acid!

Protein Powder helps bulk up the smoothie and to allow it to "stick to your bones" as they say.  I also like Nature's Life Green Whey Powder.  It is loaded with 10 raw green foods of organic wheat grass, organic spirulina, barley grass, broccoli, spinach, kale, broken cell chlorella, chlorophyll, artichoke and blue green algae.

I mix it in this to go container that has one of those awesome whisk balls!  You could throw that whisk ball in any container that you have though.  These containers & balls are called Blender Bottles.
