Confession: it took me a while to get on the smoothie train. The lack of chewing kind of weirded me out and made me think I wasn’t really eating a full meal, so I’d want a snack within hours of eating a full smoothie. Sue me. I have since seen the light and enjoy pre-work smoothies most days of the week. Here lies my go-to recipe.
- 1.5 cups almond milk (or whichever nut milk you prefer)
- 1 cup of frozen berries (pick whichever fruit strikes your fancy)
- 1 packet of frozen acai
- 1 frozen banana
- Some frozen spinach (not enough that I’m going to taste it, jah feel?)
- 1 spoonful of almond or peanut butter
And that’s it! This smoothie will vary from day to day, but I’ve found that this basic recipe will leave me feeling great and completely full until lunch time. Win win!
