I'm a big advocate for smoothies. They're easy to make, filling when made with the right ingredients, and give you a boost of energy. I also find that when I have a healthy smoothie for breakfast, it tends to keep me "in line" for the rest of the day. (I mean, unless seriously tempted. These hips don't lie.) When you eat healthy, you crave healthy. Simple as that.
Here's the recipe for my favorite Coconut Berry Smoothie. Enjoy!
Coconut Berry Smoothie
- 1 Banana
- 8oz Coconut Water
- 1 Tablespoon Almond Butter
- 1 Tablespoon Ground Flaxseed
- 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Raw Honey
- 1/2 Cup Frozen Mixed Berries (I used strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries)
Directions: Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse until completely mixed. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
