Breakfast Power Smoothie

Have you seen Hallie Klecker’s new book The Pure Kitchen?

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

  1. Combine strawberries, coconut water, almond butter and stevia in a vitamix and blend on high
  2. Blend in protein powder and ground chia seeds, then blend in ice cubes until smooth
  3. Serve

Note: if your smoothie is too thick, blend in a little more coconut water

Here are some of my other favorite quick and healthy smoothie/shake recipes:
-Nut Butter Protein Shake
-Ginger Cilantro Green Shake
-Protein Powder PiƱa Colada

What’s your favorite vitamix recipe?
