Looking for a healthier option for dessert for your New Year Resolutions or new diet? How about a pick me up for mid-day or just something protein packed or a little sweeter for breakfast with out all the guilt? Lately the way my days have been going with a busy Pilates studio, a new baby, (now almost 2 months old-where does time go!) 2 other small children, and major to do list, not to mention the unexpected that seems to be popping up on a daily basis! And we actually had our first snow Sunday! I’m not too crazy about it feeling it’s 10 out, but the snow is pretty just this once! 😉
I’ve been craving something mid-day that is satisfying and delicious but won’t leave me feeling guilty and yucky after I eat it. Being a new mom again with a hectic schedule, there’s no time for me at all. If I can brush my teeth alone with out a baby on the hip and someone else trying to take the door off the hinges it’s a good day! So yesterday I started throwing things in the blender that were going to make me feel a little more at ease and a lot more relaxed.
Here’s everything you need for this one and I swear this one will stay in your arsenal for a while! I don’t know if I could get sick of this one! Here’s your yumminess!
Makes about 4 small smoothies
- 2.5 cups of unsweetened coconut milk
