REAL FOOD // Power Greens Juice

I've been wanting to start this new segment on the blog for quite awhile. I've posted many a recipe here on the blog but since my eating habits have changed quite a bit, especially since having baby on board I thought I would start sharing more real foods, smoothies, and juices.
I think the easiest way to get all of the yummy nutrients that we need to give us energy are through juicing or smoothies. I love eating tons of veggies and fruits but sometimes when things are crazy in the mornings and I'm rushing around I find myself reaching for unhealthy breakfast foods instead of the things that properly fuel my body. This delicious power greens combination is great for keeping me full, giving me energy, and providing me with great antioxidants.

YOU'LL NEED //
4 large stemmed strawberries
1/4 cup pineapple, roughly chopped
1/2 cup greens (I used a combination of spinach, kale, chard, and carrots)
1/3 cup distilled water
2 or 3 ice cubes
Small handful of chia seeds

PREPARATION //
Add all of your ingredients into a juicer or blender of your choice. I used my Ninja and a single serve cup and pulsed until all of the ingredients were thoroughly blended. Pour into a chilled glass and sprinkle with your choice of white or black chia seeds. You can also add protein powders or other powdered supplements to this juice but I kept it all natural with fresh, organic ingredients. I hope that you try and enjoy this delicious green juice recipe!

What are some of your favorite juice recipes? I'd love to try them out!
