Veria Living Breakfast Smoothie

There is no better way to start the day than with a glass FULL of nutrients.  A green smoothie is your golden ticket to maximum glow, energy, focus, and fullness (with minimal time).

To make a great smoothie, you really only need these staples:

  • alternative milk (unsweetened)
  • frozen bananas (fruit)
  • boxed organic greens (spinach or kale)
  • ice

That’s all you really need. You can do the protein powder, but it’s not necessary. Also, chia seeds are great, but again, not necessary. Almond butter is good for people who need a little more sweetness.


Veria Living Breakfast Smoothie

Servings: 1
Time: 5 minutes

  • 1 scoop Protein Powder by Sun Warrior, Warrior blend Vanilla or Chocolate
  • 1 cup of a milk alternative (rice, almond, soy, or hemp) or water: I recommend water or unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 3-5 ice cubes
  • 1 serving of fruit – 1 banana and 1/2 cup berries (frozen works best)
  • 1 cup spinach (organic pre-washed spinach is an easy and great option)
  • 1-2 tablespoons chia seeds

Optional add-ins:

  • Natural Sweetener – stevia (I like a few drops of vanilla stevia), agave or raw honey (usually not needed as the powders tend to be sweet)
  • 1 tablespoon of real cinnamon – cinnamon is great for your metabolism and adds a lot of nice flavor
  • 1 tablespoon of nut butter – almond and peanut (make sure the nut is the only ingredient in the jar) – I’ll also add nut butter if the flavor or consistency is a bit off
  • Splash of plain coconut water
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax meal
  • Greens powder – Health Force Superfood Vitamineral Green is great
  • Raw cacao powder
  • Maca powder


Add all ingredients to blender and begin to blend on low setting.  Once everything starts to combine you can switch it to high and blend away.  You may need to scrape the sides of the blender down with a spoon once or add an additional splash of liquid.

Pour into a tall glass and enjoy!  Feel free to play around with the ratios to see what you like best, more or less water for a thinner or thicker smoothie for example.
