Recently I listened to a friend talk about the importance of healthy eating. Ever since then I have been completely inspired to make some changes! Though I wouldn’t say that I am a terrible eater but there is definitely room for improvement. So I recently started making myself this delicious and healthy breakfast smoothie.
I don’t always drink it in the morning sometimes I drink it in the afternoon. I find that drinking this smoothie keeps me from eating things that I shouldn’t like half a bag of potato chips or a bunch of glazed doughnuts. The good thing about this smoothie is that it’s easily adaptable. I don’t always make it the same way but today I have provided a recipe that you can make your own.
What I really like about drinking this smoothie is that I’m able to get a good amount of fruits and veggies in my system. I usually do snack on fruits and veggies throughout the day but I know I’m probably not getting enough. So this morning smoothie is just another way for me to increase my fruits/veggies intake.
One woman I know was telling me how she likes to put celery in hers. I tried it but really didn’t enjoy the taste. Just add whatever you like! By the looks of it you would never even guess that there is spinach in it. I like spinach because it doesn’t overpower the fruits. I also added a small amount of flax seeds just to make it even healthier but you don’t have to add them if you don’t want.
My favorite part are the coconut flakes on top. I like to add a lot because they give the smoothie some texture. For the liquid I used almond milk. In fact I have never even tried almond milk before I made this smoothie. I really like it!
If you have any ideas on healthy smoothies I would love to hear them in the comments! See ya next time!
