Today's post is dedicated to improving your health overall. If you are like me, you aren't getting your fair share of healthy nutrients on a daily basis. What can I say ... I'm a foodie at heart! Pasta, cheese, bacon, bread, you name it - I'm eating it! I do understand that all things are ok in moderation, but I'm one of those open the bag of chips & then they're GONE kinda girls! Lately, I've been replacing some of my meals with smoothies to try & counteract my past terrible eating habits. Check out this gem I have for you below!

Looking for a blender? This one is perfect for everything from on the go smoothie recipes, to food processing & making soups! Plus, you can have it delivered in as soon as one day!
3 handfuls of baby spring mix (you could also substitute spinach or whatever greens you like)
2 cups of water
2 1/2 cups of frozen berries
2 tablespoons of ground flaxseeds ( you could also substitute ground Chia seeds)
1 scoop of protein powder (optional)
Non-Sugar Sweetener to taste
First, add your handfuls of greens into the blender, top with berries, flaxseeds (or chia seeds), protein powder, non sugar sweetener ( like Stevia or Agave). Pulse for about 1 minute, then add in the two cups of water. Blend until smooth & creamy. Enjoy with a friend.
* Have you seen our smoothie challenge video, here?! It's totally hilarious!! Leave me a comment under the video & tell me who you think won, me or the hubby.
To give this recipe flexibility, the staples we have used could stay the same & you could rotate your greens & fruits. The possibilities are truly endless. If you are using this as a meal replacement, like I did don't forget to add in a little protein. Just a touch will help satiate your hunger & hold you over until your next meal. I really like the freedom of reaching for a more tasty, healthier version than what I'm used to. Plus, it allows me to be free of calorie guilt & who doesn't like that?! In a sense you get to have your cake & eat it too, so do me a favor save this to your Pinterest board, print a copy & share it with a few of your friends!
