The go-to smoothie to get you moving in your day. It is the perfect mixture of fat, fiber, greens, and protein to keep you satiated and satisfied for hours. Not to mention the number of superfoods and antioxidants in this smoothie may help to increase immune function and cognition!
No additional sweeteners are needed if you use a protein that has stevia or monk fruit, but you could add some stevia or honey, just watch your fructose, as the sweetness from the banana and berries are the perfect amount that will help keep this smoothie lower glycemic. The spinach/microgreens and matcha green tea are unidentifiable, making it an ideal meal for children.
