A lot of other smoothie recipes just may contain juice or fruit, but this ones packed major nutrients. For more nutrition related content, check out my media page where I’ve been quoted in hundreds of national media outlets.
  • Coconut water: good liquid source of potassium! If you don’t want coconut water, you could use almond milk, another type of milk, non-dairy milk or 100% juice.
  • Banana: great source of potassium.
  • Mango: high in vitamin C and potassium!
  • Pineapple: tropical fruit giving you a great dose of vitamin C.

  • Chia Seeds: my favorite seed ever, I like to call them nutritional sprinkles, you can sprinkle them on just about anything and they are loaded with essential anti-inflammatory healthy omega-3 fats, dietary fiber and protein.
  • Optional: collagen, protein powder- not necessary but if you want to bump up your protein even more, you can add a scoop of collagen powder or protein.
