Smoothies are a great way to get a bunch of fruits and veggies into your belly in way less time than it would take you to sit down and munch ’em all. Smoothies are also amazing because you can easily throw in all kinds of add-in’s to greatly boost their nutritional value.
Personally, I like to have a smoothie for breakfast every day. This is because I am the type of person that normally can’t “stomach” a lot of things in the morning. Smoothies have made it easy for me and my tummy to start the day with something that not only gives me long lasting energy but, establishes my healthy food choices for the day.
When deciding on ingredients for my smoothie I always want it to taste good, be packed full of nutrients and be as low on any added sugar. Because of this, I refrain from adding unnecessary “taste only” ingredients and stick to only fruits & veggies. (Focusing more on the veggies than fruit.)
For example: I’ve found that my smoothies taste exactly the same when made with water instead of coconut milk or any other milk substitute. This discovery saves me on bunch on calories, money and extra grams of added sugar!
Another amazing discovery I’ve made recently is the ridiculously amazing nutrition AND taste benefits of adding the three Miessence Super-foods (Probiotic, Antioxidant & Alkalizing) as well as the Miessence Protein Powder to my morning blend!
Each of these supplements are packed full of certified organic, raw, vegan, gmo-free, toxin eliminating, energy boosting, immunity strengthening, digestion supporting, skin & hair improving GOODNESS! …oh, and they’re freaking delicious separately or together!
Anyway, after a TON of experimentation (and a couple of blenders) here is my absolute favorite breakfast smoothie recipe.
Ariel’s Magical Vitalizing Breakfast Smoothie Recipe
- Makes 1 Quart (Two Servings)
- >5 minutes
- 3 cups filtered water
- 2 large bananas
- 2 huge handfuls of kale or spinach (about 4 cups packed)

Note: It might sound a little silly to write out the instructions to make a smoothie. You’re probably thinking “Just throw it in the blender. Done. Duh.”. However, if you’re like me and haven’t yet purchased an amazing Vitamix or whatever, you know that there is a certain way of layering things to get your blender to blend properly. You’re welcome because I’ve figured it out!!
1.) Add bananas and cover in the water.
2.) Add powders.
3.) Add the greens and use them to press the bananas down a lil’.
4.) Add the fruits and BLEND!!
