Breakfast Smoothie: Spinach and Avocado

Celebrity Slim-Down Secret: Harley Pasternak's Sweet Spinach Smoothie

If you've started to work hard for your bikini body, then look no further. This spinach smoothie from trainer Harley Pasternak is a favourite of his celebrity clients (Julianne Hough is a fan!) for helping them stay on the right track, especially after an indulgent period.

Spinach is the star in this creamy smoothie, and for good reason — with just 450 grams, you'll be getting your entire Recommended Dietary Allowance of vitamin A (great for healthy skin, hair, and eyes) and bone-building vitamin K, as well as an impressive amount of essential nutrients like manganese, potassium, and vitamin C. This 300-calorie smoothie is a good source of protein, making this veggie-packed smoothie a smart breakfast choice, especially if you're trying to lose weight. Get the sweet spinach smoothie recipe below.
