We're strong believers in blueberries and spinach at breakfast. Why? Well, take looksy:
Per cup, spinach has a whopping 987% of vitamin K needed for the day! Seriously? Well, that's just fucking wonderful. I'll have some.
Spinach also boasts over 100% of you needs for vitamin A as well as big doses of B vitamins, manganese, folate, magnesium, iron, and copper. Men and women tend to be lacking many of these precious minerals and vitamins, so spinach should be a go-to item in all smoothies.
Blueberries offer 32% of vitamin K, 25% of manganese, and about 15% of fiber per cup. That's berry awesome! Not to mention, blueberries regulate cholesterol levels and improve cognitive function.
We combined the nutrient-packed berries and spinach with a heap of protein powder, yogurt, flaxseeds, and walnuts to give you a smoothie that will build muscle and keep you satisfied.
Because this smoothie is so BIG, we recommend splitting it up between to jars and saving one for later.
