Bringing you a new smoothie idea EVERYDAY this week! You’re welcome!!! This one is great and you know sometimes you just want a little bit of everything in your smoothies and if you are anything like me then in life too!!!
1 c unsweetened almond milk
3 tsp oats
1 tsp chia seeds or flaxseed
1 scoop or approx 20 grams of chocolate protein powder or 3/4 c plain greek yogurt
Few ice cubes
A few of each-strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, mangos, kiwi, blackberries and avocado
(I have frozen bags of strawberries, blueberries, pineapple and mango in the freezer, the avocado, blackberries and kiwi were fresh. Frozen fruit is the way to go as it is frozen at its peak and you don’t have to worry about it going bad in the fridge over time!)
I added some fresh parsley and then blended til smooth and creamy! I write this at 7:45 am and my smoothie was consumed at 5:30 am-I am still satisfied and full but will eat again with in the next hour by 9 am……as I am sure I will be ravenous again!!
Smoothies are a great way to get a balanced on the go breakfast as you can drink it in the car on the way to work or where ever your day may be bringing you!!
