1 big handful fresh spinach or fresh parsley
1/2 fresh or frozen banana
1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1/4 cup mango frozen or fresh
1/2 cup coconut water *You can omit this and just add more almond milk
3/4 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1/2 scoop Whey protein isolate powder (I am using Precision All Natural brand, vanilla flavour. I only use 1/2 scoop which is about 18-20 grams of protein.)
1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract or almond extract
Note- This is not low carb but still delicious and nutritious.
Buy a whole bunch of blueberries, mangoes and bananas and portion 1/2 cup of blueberries, 1/4 cup mango and 1/2 a banana into small freezer bags. Done, frozen and ready to go in the morning! In a glass jar with a hand blender or regular blender add all of your ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy.
Pure vanilla extract is the flavour of love! I like my smoothies really cold so I add 2-3 ice cubes after I have blended my smoothie.
