Lemon poppy seed - a combination that truly speaks to me and my love for all things citrus. I needed to turn this combo into something other than a muffin or a cake to make the ultimate grab & go breakfast without any of the added sugars and all of the added greens.
Did you know poppyseeds are extremely healthy in their own right? Not only do they boost bone health, but they improve digestion, antioxidant defense, red blood cell formation and cognitive functioning. So many benefits from an ingredient that is so often overlooked. Add some poppy seeds not just to this smoothie, but to any of your smoothies in the morning!
I wouldn't recommend making this one in advance as it is so delicious straight out of the blender. Luckily, its super simple to make.
Makes 1 smoothie.
2 stalks celery
2 romaine leaves
1 frozen banana
1 cup frozen pineapple
1 scoop KOS vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup coconut yogurt
1 lemon, juiced and zested
1 tsp poppy seeds
8 oz nut milk or coconut milk
Toss everything into a blender except poppyseeds and blend until smooth. Add poppyseeds and pule until combined. Enjoy immediately!
