Sunrise Smoothie Recipe

I start every morning with the quintessential smoothie: banana avocado kale. I mix chia seeds, hemp seeds, and flax powder with pure peat protein powder and almond milk and instantly feel energized, which sets a great tone for my day to come. I call it the Sunrise Smoothie.

Smoothie Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Smoothie Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
