Smoothie for Lunch

Sometimes you just don’t have the time to sit down with a salad or a veggie bowl and its impossible to drive and eat with a fork. Sometimes  you think you’re only options is to grab a PB&J on your way out there door… or even worse, skip lunch (gasp!)

Not that there is anything wrong with PB&J, but let’s get real, it won’t fill a hungry wellness warrior for longer than 30 minutes. In a case like this, my smoothie for lunch is just the answer. In lieu of September being the new January, it was the perfect fit for the smoothie of the month!

My recipe was featured on @yourdailyshake on Instagram last month and the Rednek Guzzler was kind of a hit! If you’re diggin the large glass mason jar with a built-in straw, check out www.originalrednek.com.

This will take you five minutes tops. All you have to do is chop some celery & quarter an avocado, then throw everything in a blender and let er rip. On top of that, I promise that a cup of fruit will totally mask the taste of the veggies. It will not taste like you are drinking celery water. If you’re still not sold, that’s why God made agave nectar 😉

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups coconut water
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 4-5 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1 cup spinach (handful)
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 1 tsp agave (optional)

You can play around with this recipe and sub pineapple for mango, cucumber for celery, interchange your greens, or use almond milk for the liquid. I highly recommend including the avocado for creaminess and using a whole cup of fruit for sweetness!
