My brother Johnny lives in Santa Cruz, has been a vegetarian most of his life, surfs, plays the trombone and is totally chill. Its no wonder he looks younger then all of us!
The following is his famous Breakfast Smoothie recipe which was inspired by my Dad, the original “Smoothie King”. Bottoms up!

2 leaves any chard-can add 1 leaf romaine lettuce also.
Around 2 tablespoons raw cocoa nibs
1 peeled orange (organic, if available)
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 scoop Whey Cool Protein (chocolate or vanilla)
1 scoop EssentiaGreens
Around 2 cups liquid (I use either filtered water, or unsweetened tea (if I need an additional boost)
1 medjool date (optional)
Add all ingredients to a VitaMix or blender and blend for 1-2 minutes on high speed. Makes 2 good-size servings.
