Strawberry + Spinach Energy Smoothie with Natural Calm and Plant-Sourced Minerals
Serves 1

Ingredients

1 cup organic strawberries
Handful of organic baby spinach (use as much as you like, about ½ cup or 10 baby leaves is a good portion)
1 teaspoon of Natural Calm unflavored and 2 tablespoons of hot water.
½ tablespoon Plant-Sourced Minerals by Natural Vitality
1 cup coconut water
2 tablespoons organic agave nectar or a pinch of stevia  (completely optional) I did not use any additional sweetener in mine because there is plenty of sweetness in the strawberries and coconut water; but if you prefer it sweeter, a little agave or stevia would be great.

Instructions

  1. Mix 1 teaspoon of Natural Calm unflavored and 2 tablespoons of hot water and set aside.
  2. Refrigerate all ingredients (including the supplements, as they need to be stored in the refrigerator anyway after opening); wash and remove stems from the strawberries, and place everything in a blender. Blend for a few minutes until all is pureed, sweeten if desired and pour into a glass. Enjoy immediately!
  3. For a chilled version, freeze strawberries and use them instead of ice. Blend the strawberries first and add in all the other ingredients. Mix and serve.

    This sounds good but since I have had estrogen receptive breast cancer I have to make sure ingredients I use don’t produce estrogen. Would you know if the Natural Vitality products encourge estrogen production?
