The sun is out, the breeze is warm– it’s definitely summer out there!

My favorite breakfast on a warm summer morning is a nice, brain-freeze inducing smoothie packed with spinach and berries. There’s just something about getting a green veggie in the AM that makes my day 1000% better!

Summer Solstice Smoothie
Ingredients:

2 handfuls of raw spinach

1/2 cup frozen blackberries

1/2 cup frozen raspberries

1/2 frozen banana

1-2 cups So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk

This baby was tart and delish!

It was a little too thick for my dinky plastic straw…

I went no frills on this smoothie: just spinach, berries, nana and coconut milk. Simple and crisp!

Chester, or should we say Sun Puppy, thought it looked pretty darn good.

What kinds of smoothies does the warm weather have YOU craving?

    My favorite these days is kale, pineapple, frozen banana and a few berries. Yum!

    This is my favorite smoothie right now too! I add two tablespoons of flax, makes it a lil nutty- so good! Going to try that kale pineapple one today!

      Hi Julie! Thanks! I usually add some chia seeds and almond butter to my smoothies, but for some reason I was totally in the mood to keep it simple this morning! Flax sounds like a great addition to this smoothie!
