…for real people.

Stars are just like us and they drink smoothies for breakfast. 🙂

And we can drink the “Jennifer Aniston” smoothie for breakfast and be just like her. (Or something like that.) Her daily breakfast  is a nutrient-rich smoothie made out of berries, banana, chocolate almond milk and protein powder, maca powder, sprouted almonds and trace mineral drops. When I read about it, I was instantly intrigued and had to try it myself.

What makes her smoothie so great?  Let’s break it down:

berries (cherries and blueberries): full of antioxidants and vitamins.

chocolate almond milk: this was surprising to me. I won’t buy chocolate almond milk because it’s too high in sugar, so I would actually recommend swapping this out for regular milk or unsweetened vanilla almond milk – or a combination of both. (I ended up trying out a few different combinations of milk and water, but thought it was best with 1 cup of almond milk and 1 cup of 2% milk.)

vegan chocolate protein powder: I recommend using the protein powder that you have and/or like. If you don’t have chocolate, add a bit of unsweetened cocoa powder and a touch of stevia or honey. (I love the vega one line.)

maca powder: is one of those superfoods you find at the health food store and it’s been used for thousands of years in Incan cultures as a source of nourishment and healing. (Maca is a nutrient-dense packed with vitamins, plant sterols and many essential minerals that can increase staminia, boost libido and combat fatigue. From Navitas Naturals ) I don’t keep any at home (vega one actually has some in it already) and it’s certainly not necessary.

trace mineral drops: again…not necessary. I’m not sold on mineral drops being an integral part of a smoothie.

frozen banana: they make smoothies creamy and sweet. It’s always a good idea to have them in your freezer.

chocolate stevia: use stevia if you have it and like it (any flavor) or a small drizzle of honey if you don’t. (Or skip sweeteners completely!)

sprouted almonds: uhhh, what?! you might be thinking… but it’s really easy. Soak raw almonds in water overnight and add to the smoothie. Or, if you forget, simply add the almonds before blending. 🙂
