Cold and flu season is in full force this January, so what better way to include tons of nutrients while hydrating your body? A green smoothie of course! This one not only includes fruit but some hidden veggies too.
Most green smoothies never fill me up. So because this is winter, and we should be nourishing our bodies, I added some sun butter. If you’re unfamiliar with sun butter, it’s similar to nut butter but it’s nut-free! Sunflower seeds are packed with antioxidants, magnesium, and may promote healthy cholesterol levels
If you’re like me and despise waking up early to make breakfast, you’re in luck. You can prep all of the fruit and veggies the night before and freeze them in a stasher! Make sure to lay them out to give the frozen goods a bit of wiggle room (or else they stick together, not fun).
New years intentions still happening? Do this!
*Pro Tip* Make sure to use fresh pineapple in this one. The juice is crazy hydrating and contains tons of enzymes to get that digestive tract moving.
