RECIPE: Banana Nut Smoothie with Nibs

smoothie with nibs

 

Ditch the banana nut muffin and latte for this delicious treat.  The nuts and seeds pack micronutrients and proteins to keep you sated all morning long and the nutritionally dense nibs give your the extra perk you need when you are lacking Zzzzzz’s!

In a Blender combine:

1 frozen banana (can use room temp banana and 3-4 cubes of ice instead)

1/2 cup almond milk

1/2 cup water

2 Tbsp chia seeds

10 Almonds

5 Walnuts

1/4 tsp cinnamon (or ~5 shakes)

1/4 tsp of nutmeg (or ~5 shakes) *

2 Tbsp Pumpkin Seeds*

Sprinkle Cacao Nibs in and/or on top

 

*optional

RECIPE: COCONUT SUPERFOOD SMOOTHIE

This smoothie is your new best friend. Its superfood contents jam in the vitamins and nutrients your body craves.

It blasts sugar cravings and will jostle your body back to health. Its power-packed protein will ramp up your metabolism and keep you satisfied!

Sure, it has more ingredients than I like to deal with, especially in the morning, but it’s easier than making eggs and it keeps me full longer!

Recipe makes 2 full servings, so I make one each morning then I’ll pour half in a jar and save it the fridge for later. Sometimes I’ll share 1/2 with my husband and/or 9 month old.  This is definitely our family’s new, “go to” breakfast smoothie!

Enjoy!
