Apr 04, 2019 @ Project Juice

Living a busy, on-the-go lifestyle while maintaining healthy habits can seem daunting. Luckily, we’ve come up with prep recipes for smoothies on-the-go! These can be prepped the night before or whipped up in less than 3 minutes in the morning. Make a few individual batches of the smoothie ingredients at the beginning of your week so you can rest assured knowing your breakfast is easy, delicious, and healthy for you! It is the most important meal of the day after all.

 

Everybody loves a green smoothie…but THIS green smoothie is incredibly hydrating and alkalizing! It blends spinach, electrolyte-rich coconut water and Vitamin-E boosting cucumber.

We added pineapple for it’s natural sweetness and digestive properties with the enzyme, bromelain.

 

To top it all off, add a creamy, satiating, and our favorite heathy fat, avocado and a squeeze of immune-supporting lime juice and you’ve got a winning breakfast combo!
