Serving up easy and healthy breakfast smoothies that taste like a dream! Today’s Chocolate Smoothie Recipe with Coconut and Chai is satisfying and sweet. Just what I need to start my day off on the right track.
Now that school is back in session, our morning time is rush, rush, rushed!
We get the kids up at 6:30am whizz through primping, then head downstairs to pack lunches and prepare breakfast before we head out the door at 7:20. That’s a lot to pack into 50 minutes, but none of us can stomach getting up any earlier than 6:30 in the morning.
It can be tricky to prepare a healthy and filling breakfast in the 10-15 minutes we allow for breakfast each day. And honestly, most of the things I can think to feed the kids in a short timeframe are loaded with junk.
So most days we rely on a good smoothie recipe to keep the kids happy, fill our tummies, and pump us full of vitamins and minerals.
One of our favorites is a chocolate smoothie recipe with coconut and chai… and Yes, it’s full of vitamins and minerals. I promise.
I accomplish this by adding a scoop of Greens+ Advanced Multi Superfood to each smoothie.
Greens+ is a powerful powdered greens blend packed with raw green foods, superfruits, sea vegetables, herbs, probiotics, and vitamins. It is soy free, dairy free, gluten free and non-gmo.
You can mix it with water and take a shot of greens for a healthy morning boost, or you can mix it into your favorite chocolate smoothie recipe, like we do.
We love adding Greens+ Vanilla Chai Superfood to our chocolate smoothie recipe with coconut milk, for a rich blend of complex flavors. The touch of chai spices and creamy coconut milk, make this a healthy smoothie the kids beg for!
Another Greens+ product we discovered this year are the +PlusBars. Greens+ makes a variety of Energy, Protein, and Superfood bars that pair well with smoothies in the morning, and make great healthy snacks on the go.
The kids have been taking +PlusBars in their lunch boxes. It’s a treat that I feel good about giving them.
We especially love the Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Crisp +PlusBars made with crispy brown rice, dark chocolate, and chia seeds.
And guess what… They happen to pair perfectly with today’s smoothie!
