Mixed Berry Smoothie
I often get asked about what I put in my smoothies and today I’m going to share my favorite smoothie recipe with you. I use frozen mixed berries because it helps me get the much needed boost in Vitamin C (which helps with Adrenal Fatigue) and I don’t have to worry about adding ice to the smoothie. Also the berries are naturally sweet so I don’t have to add any additional sweetener. I use coconut milk and coconut oil, which add plenty of healthy fats and make the smoothie a creamy texture. I always add a tablespoon or so of gelatin to my smoothies which adds some protein, but also provides the amazing gut healing benefits (Read more about the benefits here). I throw in some chia seeds for a boost of Omega 3′s and spinach for some added vitamins and minerals. What a great way to start the day!

- 1 cup coconut milk (I use light for a thinner consistency)
