So, we’re back to smoothies…
I’ve been doing my best, despite an insane work schedule and a house search, to eat just as healthy as I do when I have time and energy. I get to work quite early, and I’m a big believer in breakfast (plus my blood sugar can go wonky). But oatmeal at my desk can get kind of boring. So lately I’ve been jumping on the smoothie merry-go-round (coconut milk smoothie, spinach & pineapple smoothie, pear mango kale smoothie).
I’ve found it easiest to at least core and quarter the apple. I also just slice each quarter into a few pieces, just to make it easier to blend.
I usually throw in whatever healthy add-ins I have on-hand, just to give it a boost. Right now that’s chia seeds, and sometimes some ground flaxseed or wheat germ.
So great! Protein-packed, full of antioxidants, cinnamon for blood sugar control, and—as a bonus—delicious!
Almond Apple-Cinnamon Breakfast Smoothie
- 1 apple, cored (I keep mine chilled, to make the smoothie colder)
- 1 banana (frozen, if you can)
- 5 or more raw almonds
- 3/4 cup of greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1 teaspoon or more of cinnamon
- Optional add-ins: chia seeds, flaxseed, etc.
Blend everything together and drink right away (or chill until consumed).
