It’s no secret that celebs, nutritionists, and wellness bloggers alike have the same go-to breakfast: a smoothie. You can fit in all the greens and healthy nutrients you need, not to mention it’s the easiest breakfast, like, ever. You can take it on the go, meaning it fits into your busy lifestyle (we get it — sometimes breakfast will only happen if you can have it in the car or on your commute).
Kelly LeVeque is a holistic nutritionist, wellness expert, and celebrity health coach to some of your favorite stars (Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner, and Lauren Conrad, JUST TO NAME A FEW!!). Kelly has become famous for her “Fab Four Smoothies,” which are blood sugar balancing meal replacement shakes with the right nutrients to keep you full for hours. Trust me when I say you will not even want your mid-morning snack!
The formula for her Fab Four Smoothie goes like this: Protein (20g minimum) + Fiber (10g minimum) + 1 tbsp Fat + Handful of Greens + 1/4 cup fruit + Superfoods + Liquid.
This formula has changed the smoothie game, making it really simple to make filling and nutritious breakfasts.
To make your own Fab Four smoothie, you just need to know the forms of each nutrient that you like best (like protein powder for protein, avocado or almond butter for fat, chia or flax seeds for fiber, and cacao powder as the superfood). Or follow one of these *insanely* good recipes from Kelly herself. These smoothies are not only easy, healthy, and Lauren Conrad-approved, but they’re also extremely delicious (and taste like your favorite desserts). You’ll never go back to your boring old smoothie again.
