An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RECIPE: Iced Coffee Smoothie

Need a quick, healthy pick-me-up in the morning? Have I got the smoothie for you!

I’m not usually a coffee drinker. In fact, I managed to make it through college, medical school and residency without picking up the habit. But as a mother of a newborn, I’ve found I could use a little more “Get-Up-And-Go” in the mornings.

So I created this healthy iced coffee to help me survive. Hope you enjoy it!

Iced Coffee

In a Blender Combine:

1 cup Spinach

Coffee (either 1 Tbsp coffee beans oR 1/2-1 cup of yesterday’s left over coffee)

1/2 cup Almond Milk

1/2 cup filtered H2o

4-6 cubes Ice

1/2 tsp (or just 4 dashes) Cinnamon

1 Tbsp Maple Syrup (optional for sweet lovers)

1 Tbsp Hemp Seeds (optional Super food, also packs in some protein)

1 tsp (or a splash) Vanilla
