1 cup of blueberries

1 handful of spinach

1/2 cup of Greek yogurt

*you can add some honey, or agave nectar for more sweetness

 

Berries & Greek Yogurt. Berries are good for helping fight stress (caused by free radicals), and Greek yogurt is high in pro biotics, which helps your digestive tract.

1/2 cup of raspberries

1/2 cup of Greek yogurt

1 table spoon of agave nectar (or honey)

2 bananas

2 tablespoons of peanut butter 

1/2 cup of almond milk
