Jennifer Garner Shares the Healthy Smoothie She Makes 'Every Day for Breakfast'
The mom of three says she began whipping up a smoothie she learned from nutritionist Kelly LeVeque to help get in shape for her role in the upcoming action movie Peppermint. "I started working with @bewellbykelly a few months ago to get ready for #PEPPERMINTmovie and have had her smoothie every day for breakfast since," she shared on Instagram on Monday.
In September of last year,the actress signed on as a co-founder of Once Upon a Farm — a company that sells cold-pressed organic baby food and applesauce. For her smoothie, Garner takes the recipe she knows and loves but gives it her own spin replacing fresh blueberries with the fruit purèe.
"Today, I decided to play scientist and see if my @onceuponafarm cold-pressed, organic purée (or baby food, if you're a baby, but whatever) could be a substitute for fresh blueberries when I didn't see any in the fridge. Yep, it could," she wrote.
Garner also includes a few more ingredient to make it that much more tasty and nutritious, including chocolate coconut collagen protein powder, almond butter, chia seeds and almond milk. Get the full recipe below!
