Jump-start your daily vegetable intake with this simple smoothie. Because it’s blended (not juiced), you still benefit from all the fiber in the blueberries and spinach. You’ll only need a bit of the naturally sweet coconut water to hide the spinach-y taste from your morning taste buds; the rest of the liquid can be plain water.

Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

• 1 cup frozen blueberries
• 1 to 2 handfuls fresh spinach
• 1/2 can (about 9 ounces) coconut water
• 2 cups water

Combine ingredients in a blender. If there isn’t enough liquid to cover the other ingredients, add a bit more water. (This will help it blend easily.) Churn until evenly mixed, pour into a to-go container and hit the road.

For a Boost

Pack in Protein: Toss in a handful of raw, unsalted almonds.

Lower Your Cholesterol: Throw in 1/2 cup oats for extra fiber.
