Being stuck at home makes it so much harder to resist all the goodies in the pantry. If you start your day with a filling, healthy breakfast, it will be easier to keep your appetite under control for the rest of the day. Smoothies are a good way to pack al the healthy stuff into one glass.
Try this smoothie. It is super simple and tasty.
If you can perhaps delay your breakfast until 10, you will not crave lunch for many hours after.
The good fats in this smoothie will leave you satisfied for much longer in contrast to one filled with just fruits.
Frozen blueberries ¼ cup
Frozen strawberries ¼ cup
Organic cocoa powder (to taste)
¼ to ½ avocado
Dates for sweetness if needed
(especially if you are using the chocolate version)
Coconut milk or cream ¼ cup
10- 15 almonds
1-2 tbsp chia seeds
Double cream plain yoghurt ¼ cup
Start your day off healthy and guilt free to set the trend for the rest of your day!
