Experimenting with more smoothies for breakfast.  I’m trying to not have too many fruits at once to avoid sugar spikes.

1/2 avocado
1 c kale
1/3 of a large cucumber
1/4 c oatmeal
2 Tbsp flax seeds
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 c almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Dash of cinnamon

And the kitchen sink.

Throw everything into a blinder and mix for a bit. Makes two servings.

Breakfast Smoothie Kick

I’ve been on a smoothie kick for a few weeks now. Just about every morning, I have a smoothie. I started out drinking the whole thing, a tall glass, but now I’m breaking it into two servings. Less blinder washing not to mention a time saver. I use what I have. Some items might seem crazy, but they are good for you and either they are hidden so you don’t taste it, or it compliments the other ingredients.

1 banana
1 c frozen blueberries
1 c kale
1/2 c almond milk
Dash of cinnamon

The kale flavor is hidden and the blue and green make a funny grayish purple color. Might not be the prettist, but it was tasty.

1 Tbsp flaxseeds
1 banana
1/2 avocado
1 1/2 c kale
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 c pineapple juice
1/2 c water
Dash of cinnamon

Makes 2. You can’t taste the vinegar, but it’s really good for you. If this is too sweet for you, add some more water. No need to use anything frozen (unless you want to), it comes out really creamy and smooth.

1 banana
1 1/2 Tbsp flaxseeds
2 Tbsp peanut butter
1-2 Tbsp honey
1 c almond milk
Dash of cinnamon

The protein in the flaxseeds and peanut butter are great for post workouts and holding off hunger for a long time. Cinnamon and honey have a lot of great benefits too.
