Ahh breakfast, the most important meal of the day! There is nothing better than waking up and making a nutrient packed smoothie to last me throughout the day.

There are so many ways to add extra nutrients into smoothies. If you are looking to add protein, add some protein powder. There are different flavors of protein powder that you can use too! I don't usually use protein powder but when I make my brother a smoothie I use the plain flavor or the vanilla flavor since they aren't super flavorful. Another option to make your smoothie more nutritious is to add spinach to it. It might sound weird, but spinach is really yummy in smoothies! The color is the only difference between a spinach smoothie and one made without spinach. Other than that the flavor is consistent through both of them.

I decided to kick off my day with a healthy fruit smoothie made with berries, bananas and coconut milk. I didn't add any protein powder because I don't like the additional texture it gives off. I also couldn't add any spinach because currently we are out, so it will have to wait until later. Anyways, in this smoothie I used frozen bananas, the frozen mixed berry mix from costco and vanilla flavored coconut milk. It tasted amazing! I didn't think I would be a fan of coconut milk because I don't like the coconut taste, but I couldn't taste it in this smoothie--which was nice.

1. 1/2 frozen banana (It is better to use frozen banans instead of normal bananas because it allows the smoothie to be thicker, but you can use normal ones too)
2. 1 cup frozen mixed berries
3. 1 1/4 cup  Sugar Free Vanilla Coconut Milk 

How to make the smoothie:
1. In a blender, combine all the ingredients and blend on high until the ingredients are fully combined.
