My Everyday Smoothie

Vegan Smoothie

I go through phases where I eat the same thing every single day. Sometimes these phases last a week, sometimes months! Lately I have been loving this Raspberry Banana Smoothie! I always make it with the same base, and sometimes change up the optional "add ins".  If I'm feeling wild I will turn it into a smoothie bowl and add some toppings! 

I also get super cold when I drink smoothies (I am the person that is always freezing). So I love drinking my smoothie out in the sunshine everyday. Starting my day with sunshine and a smoothie sets me up to have an awesome day! And because I'm the person that likes to have reasons behind everything I do, here are my reasons why this little sunshine/smoothie combo is the best:

  • Sunlight is thought to increase the brain’s release of serotonin, which is associated with boosting your mood and helping a person feel calm and focused. 
  • Bananas and spinach are both a power house of nutrients. They also are known to give you a good dose of mood-lifting serotonin.
  • Raspberries are filled with antioxidants and nutrients that are known to help everything from your eyesight to your memory!

Simply blend it all together and enjoy in the sunshine! I always have frozen chopped bananas on hand. The best time to freeze them is when they have brown spots, which is when they will be the sweetest for smoothies!
