Vitamin D Green Breakfast Smoothie

Vitamin D is slightly more challenging to get from natural sources on a vegan diet. Luckily, many plant based milks and yogurts are fortified with vitamin D, so morning smoothies are a perfect time to get your vitamin D fix.

 

Here's our delicious and refreshing green breakfast smoothie, packed with the good stuff.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup (115 g) vegan vanilla yogurt (we recommend alpro, but any brand that is fortified is perfect)
  • 2 cups (310 g) pineapple, peeled with core
  • 1 stalk (40 g) celery
  • 2 cups (60 g) spinach
  • 2 cups (260 g) ice cubes

Directions

  1. Cut your veggies and fruits and prepare your ice and yogurt.
  2. Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth - approximately 1 minute or until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then increase to its highest speed.
  4. Serve into a glass or reusable cup and enjoy! We recommend using a stainless steel or bamboo straw if your smoothie is slightly thicker.
