I’ve been wanting to incorporate more entrepreneur lifestyle type posts on this blog, so I thought it would be fun to start with a recipe I make all the time. As someone who works from home, I know how hard it can be to eat healthy, get exercise and avoid snacking all day long. Whether you’re a blogger, entrepreneur or mom, it’s so important to make your health a priority. Eating clean, energy boosting foods will help you feel better and help you get more done. That’s why today, I’m sharing my favorite productivity boosting green smoothie.
This post was originally posted on Socially Boutique. Socially Boutique is now South & Palm. Find out why here.
This smoothie is packed full of nutritious and energizing ingredients that help me get through my day as a work from home entrepreneur. It also contains a good amount of protein which will keep you feel full throughout your day. When I first found this smoothie on Pinterest, I was a little skeptical – but trust me, it’s so good!
The best part? This productivity boosting green smoothie is so simple to make. With just 5 ingredients, there’s really no excuse not to try it! I had one right before getting inspired to write this post. See? It works fast 😉
5 Power Packed Ingredients
Just one cup of kale packs 3g of protein, 2.5g of fiber, Vitamins A, C and K, as well as several B vitamins, iron and omega-3’s.
Pears add a juicy sweetness to the smoothie and additional fiber to keep you full.
Bananas are rich in potassium and fiber and add more natural sweetness to this delicious drink.
Almond butter adds even more protein to the smoothie as well as healthy fats, minerals and calcium. Not to mention, it’s delicious!
Almond milk is rich in calcium, makes this drink so smooth and also contains protein and healthy fats like the almond butter.Entrepreneurs: Start your day with this productivity boosting green smoothieClick To Tweet
