I love smoothies, but don't love all the carbs they drown my body with. This recipe has enough fat and protein in it to prevent that, but you're also getting vitamins and minerals from the greens.
1/2 large avocado
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cups organic baby spinach leaves, lightly steamed if possible
1/2 cup coconut cream or coconut milk
1 tablespoons MCT oil
1 scoop collagen (I prefer this one)
1 scoop whey protein
1 cup ice
Optional: Add just a few drops of food grade lemon essential oil in to take it to the next level!
1. Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
2. Depending on how thick you like your smoothie you can add in extra water and re-blend it until you reach your desired consistency.
3. Taste and adjust the flavors if needed.
4. Pour into glasses and top with your chosen toppings. Enjoy!
