This cookbook is a lovely collection of healthy gluten free, dairy free recipes. I absolutely love the “Energizing Breakfasts” section which contains quick and easy smoothie recipes full of superfoods; the book also contains wonderful recipes such as Spring Pesto Drizzle, which is packed with healthy greens.
I had the pleasure of meeting Hallie at a conference last year, and can assure you she is every bit as lovely in person as she is on her blog, Daily Bites.
The smoothie below is a slight adaptation of the recipe in Hallie’s book for a Pure Power Smoothie. Hallie and I both like to make smoothies with protein powder in order to start the day off with a nice energy boost. This quick and healthy smoothie is great for breakfast and also makes a delicious afternoon snack.
Breakfast Power Smoothie
- Combine strawberries, coconut water, almond butter and stevia in a vitamix and blend on high
- Blend in protein powder and ground chia seeds, then blend in ice cubes until smooth
Note: if your smoothie is too thick, blend in a little more coconut water
What’s your favorite vitamix recipe?
