Morning Boost Smoothie

This smoothie gives me a big burst of energy in the mornings. Sometimes I think it is better than coffee. It doesn't leave me with the down effects of coffee because it is a natural, veggie and fruit induced energy.

What you need:

1/2 cup fresh carrot juice (2 large fresh juiced carrots)
1/2 cup almond or coconut milk
1/2 cup (a handful) fresh spinach
1 cup fresh or frozen fruit

Blend ingredients together and enjoy. If you're using fresh fruit you may want to add some ice for thickness. For those worried about not liking the taste of the carrot juice or spinach, I promise it is barely noticeable. Add a couple of tablespoons of fat-free fruit yogurt to cover the taste more, but it really isn't needed.
