Want to start your morning smooth(ie)ly? Here’s how you can:
This bright beauty bowl is ready for all intents and smoothie purposes in under five minutes. (Confession: Arranging the almonds in a sad attempt at a heart was a lot harder than blending this breakfast up.)
Here’s what found its way inside my blender:
– 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
– 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
– 3/4 scoop of vanilla protein powder
– 1/2 banana
– 1 tbsp almond butter
– handful of ice
– 1 packet of stevia and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon
The sweetener is of course optional, but recommended for my fellow sweet tooths. I topped it off with rolled oats and toasted almonds, but cacao nibs, raisins, chia or hemp seeds would equally do the trick.
The blueberries pack antioxidants (think less aging, more brain power, better skin), while the protein powder brings the satiation factor ’til lunchtime and the almond butter fills your healthy fats quota.
So you might as well blend, sip, repeat.
