While there are many grab-and-go smoothies, if I have extra minutes at home, I’ll blend my own smoothie.
This smoothie will indeed hold me over until lunch and because it’s packed with gut health goodness, I don’t feel ravenous for snacking excessively. I also am getting more into non-dairy options as I like to be as sustainable as possible.
- 1 banana
- 3-4 strawberries
- 1 cup cashew milk (or milk of your choice)
- chia seeds
- a dash of cinnamon
- a scoop of nonfat yogurt
- Blend together and poof, really simple. You can add more milk or yogurt to change the consistency, but overall it should be smooth and not too thick.
In a nutshell, this is basically how I’ve been wanting to kick off my mornings regularly, now that I’m into a work routine. It’s something filling, contains high energy, and is a healthy start to my day that doesn’t take too much thought or time to prepare. I love that Trace and I spend time in the kitchen but also eat well throughout the day regardless of if it comes in a bottle or if we make it ourself.
