BREAKFAST CLEANSE SMOOTHIES

Fresh vegetable and fruit smoothies are deeply cleansing, alkalizing and nourishing. Here are some important considerations when making smoothies:

Coconut water is a great base for smoothies as it contains electrolyte minerals which nourish, hydrate and energize.  It also adds sweetness. Be sure to purchase pure coconut water as some brands contain sugar and additives.  Other options for the liquid base are water, unsweetened almond milk or organic canned coconut milk diluted with water. 

Green powders like VegeGreens, Perfect Greens, Barley Grass, Moringa or Spirulina powders make an amazing addition to smoothies as they are packed with antioxidants, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber which cleanse, nourish, energize, alkalize and purify our cells and body. 

Natasha’s seed mixture is a blend of equal parts flax, hemp, chia, and sesame.  Keep a jar filled with a mixture of these seeds to add to smoothies.  Adding seeds to smoothies increases fiber, protein, and essential fats. 

For increased protein (recommended), consider adding 1 scoop of a plant based protein powder like IronVegan, VegiDay or Progressive Protein.

Smoothie Bowl: Want an alternative to a liquid breakfast?  Turn your smoothie into a smoothie bowl by topping it with organic coconut, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, berries, etc.  Or build a layered breakfast bowl with a bottom base of chia pudding or overnight oats, layered with smoothie and topped with nuts and seeds.

Don't forget to chew!  “Chewing” your smoothie activates digestion.
