Morning Power Smoothie

Hey guys! Paige here…just wanted to give you all a little "bump-date" and share a new favorite recipe! 

SO by week 24 of my pregnancy I had already gained 33 pounds and was really starting to stress out (average weight gain for most pregnancies is 25-35 pounds, and I still had over 3 months to go)! I was constantly hungry and my eating was pretty out of control, so I decided to turn to my own personal fitness guru/sister Sidney! I wanted help getting on a nutrition plan that would help get my weight under control, but also make sure I was getting all of the nutrients I need during pregnancy. She helped me come up with one and did not disappoint! 

Last week was my first week on the plan, and I actually LOST 3 pounds. Woohoo! I'm constantly eating HEALTHY foods so I never feel hungry, and I have much more energy throughout the day. 

My favorite thing on the plan is my morning smoothie! It's SO good and I crave it as soon as I wake up :) I'll be sharing more of my new eating plan soon, but today I want to share the recipe for this amazing smoothie that's so healthy and yummy!


What MAKES this smoothie is this amazing protein powder. It's SO good and only has 50 calories, AND 100 milligrams of caffeine :) It'll definitely wake ya up in the morning, and I love it! Click on the linked picture below to purchase.


The recipe also calls for flax and chia seeds (both optional). Below is the brand I use :)

When making this smoothie, I use a large handful of frozen spinach and kale. I buy the brand below at the grocery store, and just stick it in the freezer!

Below is the recipe. It makes enough for two and I make it for my husband and myself every morning. If you're making for one, cut everything in half!

Morning Power Smoothie:

1 Banana
1 handful frozen spinach
1 handful frozen kale
1 Spoonful Flax Seeds
1 Spoonful Chia Seeds
1 Spoonful Almond Butter
2 Cups Frozen Blueberries
2 Cups Almond Milk (I use unsweetened vanilla)
