This week, we’re content-swapping with our friends at HBFit! Short for Health Beauty Fitness, HBFIT is the brainchild of DJ, fitness lover, and all-around cool girl Hannah Bronfman, and it's your guide to living a healthy, green juice–fueled life. The HBFit team will be writing about health, fitness, and Halloween candy on Byrdie, and you can head over to HBFit to see a new beauty story from us each day (including but not limited to our editorial director’s fall skincare routine and all the ways you can use pumpkin in your beauty routine). On day five, Bronfman is sharing her favorite fall breakfast smoothie recipe. Enjoy!
There’s nothing like starting the day with a healthy, filling breakfast smoothie. I created this smoothie recipe just by experimenting with my favorite fall flavors and health food staples. Chlorophyll and Chlorella powder have amazing disease-fighting properties, and the pumpkin, ginger, and cinnamon make this smoothie taste like a slice of pumpkin pie. The protein powder is optional but makes for a great addition to a post-workout shake.
If you have a sweet tooth in the morning, you’ll love having this creamy smoothie for breakfast. I love that it’s so simple and filled with fresh, seasonal ingredients.
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp. Chlorella powder
1 tbsp. Chlorophyll
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. Aloha protein
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend and enjoy!
