Today I wanted to start my morning with a healthy smoothie. I recently picked up some almond milk which is low in calories, and high in protein. I also had some leftover strawberries from Valentine’s Day, so an almond strawberry smoothie was a no brainer. I added flax seeds for an extra boost in omega 3’s and a healthy amount of fiber. I love cinnamon so I added dash, and in a few minutes my breakfast smoothie was made. I will tell you that this recipe is not sweet, so if you must add some sweetness, I recommend some organic agave nectar. Here’s how easy it was to make!
- 1 Cup Almond Milk
- 4-5 Fresh Strawberries
- 1 Teaspoon Flax seeds
- A Dash of Cinnamon
In a blender, or mini food processor add your milk, rinsed and hulled strawberries, flax seeds and cinnamon. Blend until smooth and pour in a large glass. Decorate with a freshly sliced strawberry. Makes one serving. Simple, and healthy! Enjoy!
