I know I’ve stated many times that I tend to get on different breakfast “kicks”. This week, I’m back on the smoothie train!
When I make a smoothie, I try to use it as an opportunity to really pack a lot of good into a little serving. Why not get in a hefty does of fruits, veg, healthy fats, fiber, and lean protein all into one colorful cup?
Today, I made a green smoothie, and it was so delicious that I sucked it down faster than expected. I used avocado to help thicken the smoothie and provide a dose of healthy fats. I typically add chia seeds to my smoothies as well for a little added fiber and as a thickening agent, but today I was moving a bit too fast and forgot! Use this smoothie as the perfect start to your day and let your body enjoy all of the nutrients that you have just provided!
Perfectly Peachy Green Smoothie:
- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1-2 cups fresh spinach
- 1/2 banana
- 1 1/2 cups frozen peaches
- 1/4 lg avocado
- pinch of cinnamon
- 1 tsp chia seeds (optional)
Blend all ingredients on high until smooth and enjoy!
