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!
