The Wellness Journey: My Favourite Smoothie Recipe

I don't know about any of you, but I am a huge sucker for smoothies in the morning. It's the easiest way to get my morning boost of fruit, I can stock them full of other good-for-me things (flax seed, spinach), and they are the best way to curb my morning caffeine cravings. 

No word of a lie, I did not have a morning cup of coffee today - nor have I been craving one. 

Here's the recipe for my morning 'go to' smoothie. The full recipe makes 2-3 servings. If you want only one, cut the recipe in half, with the exception of the banana. You always want a full banana.  

Perhaps before a good recipe, though, the single most important item to smoothie making is your blender. The blender that is featured is a Black and Decker blender which retails for $100. I purchased it for $1. Well, sort of. The blender was 50% off after Christmas, and I had $60.00 in gift cards. After taxes, I was $1.02 short, and since pennies are now obsolete in Canada, the blender cost me $1. I'd say that's a success.

I love this blender, too. It's very efficient, very powerful, and also very quiet (compared to other blenders I've used). Invest in a blender you love if you don't have one. KitchenAid makes some quality stand appliances and Nick is a big fan of the Magic Bullet. Everyone's tastes are a little different. 

Now, just to tease your palate, I've included some photos of the blending process to encourage you. 

Aaaand, ENJOY!
