Green Breakfast Smoothie [paleo + vegan]-5

In my ideal world, I’d sit down every morning for a hot breakfast, complete with over-easy eggs served on top of sautéed vegetables with a side of perfectly crisp, thick-cut bacon. Most days, though, I’m scrambling for something to hold me over until my kids’ nap (when I can hopefully eat for a couple uninterrupted minutes). Unfortunately, my grab and go food choices all too often include treats like chocolatey scones and sugar-topped muffins – hardly a nutrient-rich option.

This past week, I’ve skipped the pastries (or just enjoyed them as an afternoon snack) and whipped up a green smoothie to get fruits and vegetables in my system first thing in the morning. This recipe is dairy free and only uses a banana and dates for sweetness. It also has a good dose of fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, and potassium. And best of all? It takes about two minutes to make – perfect for busy mornings! Enjoy, Sarah
