Cold Season Breakfast Cocktail (Smoothie)

Cold Season Breakfast Cocktail (Smoothie)

This has been my go-to breakfast from late fall through the winter. It’s full of vitamins and antioxidants and contains ingredients that help digestion. The ginger and cinnamon invigorate circulation and promote warming. I adjust the amount of ginger depending on my body’s needs and consume it at room temperature. I’m not claiming this will keep the sniffles away, but the big nutritional boost doesn’t hurt. For me, it’s helped break up congestion I’ve experienced, particularly during this damp time of the year.

This makes about 16 oz.

  • ­­­­1 apple
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 carrot
  • Handful of spinach
  • Juice of ½-1 lemon plus piece of fresh rind
  • 1-inch (or more) slice fresh ginger
  • 1-inch piece dried orange peel
  • 1 Tbs almond butter
  • ½ scoop protein power
  • Scoop Greens powder
  • Lots of cinnamon
  • Splash orange juice

Blend and enjoy!
