  1. I have a problem with this smoothie recipe because it is lacking greens and focuses on too much fruit. Instead of the fresh fruit, use 1 cup of spinach, romaine lettuce or kale. Add in almond butter to taste and use a non-dairy milk, like almond or coconut milk. You can still use the yogurt or tofu, just make sure your yogurt is organic and your tofu is non-GMO. Then you will have yourself a healthy way to start the day.
