How to have a healthy start during a cross-country move? Smoothies! We packed frozen kale, vanilla protein powder, iced coffee, coconut oil and acacia fiber along with our Magic Bullet for a nutrient dense Frappe Smoothie every morning. Kale offers important antioxidants and phytonutrients, protein powder grounds our blood sugar and provides us with amino acids to develop mood-stabilizing neurotransmitters, coconut oil lubricates our brains and keeps us full, and acacia fiber is a resistant starch that feeds the gut microbiome and promotes satiety. And coffee because #roadtrip. This yummy smoothie keeps us full for hours, so the only ones snacking are the kids!
Vanilla Frappe Smoothie (single serve)

1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2-1 T acacia fiber
1/2-1 T coconut oil
