Easy Chocolate Smoothie Recipe with Coconut and Chai (and Greens!) #dairyfree #soyfree #glutenfree #breakfast

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.

Chocolate Smoothie Recipe with Coconut and Chai (and Greens!) #dairyfree #soyfree #glutenfree #breakfast

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!

Plus Bars!! #dairyfree #soyfree #glutenfree #breakfast

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!

Yummy Plus Bars!! #dairyfree #soyfree #glutenfree #breakfast

    I tried a superfood once and it was amazing; I felt so good. I don’t know why I stopped using one and really need to start again; my diet hasn’t been the best and I’m not feeling that great. This superfood would help me get back on track with my health.

    I have tried Chia Seeds & Goji Berries (not sure if that is a “super food”) I usually add them to pancake batter or toss on a salad. I’m always looking for ways to improve my diet as well as my family’s .

    Love this smoothie and those Plus bars are the best-such good flavors.

  50. Christine Prestoposted September 12, 2014 at 12:11 pm Reply

    I actuall had an Acai bowl today! That is a superfood. I also take regular shots of wheatgrass, which definitely don’t taste as good as Acai. haha. I know that they also sell acai powder to make bowls with, which I would love to do at home!! I really do believe that eating superfoods contributes to your overall wellness. I know the peanut m&ms at work sure don’t haha.

  51. Candiceposted September 12, 2014 at 12:00 pm Reply

    The only super food I’ve tried is Chia seeds. I’d be interested to try Greens+ to improve my health. I like that you can add it to water or smoothies.

  52. sarah kposted September 12, 2014 at 11:51 am Reply

    I haven’t tried any of the new bars, I love the Greens plus natural energy and chocolate bars. They are tasty and I feel that they fuel my body in a heathy way. I look forward to trying the new ones.
