I must first apologize for having gone MIA for the past few weeks. I have been so busy with exams and final preps for the Soweto half marathon. Time was just not on my side and any spare time I had, I used to catch up on much-needed relaxation and sleep.
Today, I wanted to share with you a simple four-ingredient smoothie that got me through the busy mornings of studying and writing exams. As you can imagine, I was sometimes not able to do my usual fruit and vegetable shopping. So I would have to rely on some staple ingredients that I always have in my house to ensure that I still start my busy mornings with a nutrient packed breakfast, which is simple and very quick to make.
I cannot even begin to tell you how delicious this smoothie is, it honestly tastes like you having dessert for breakfast. You don’t actually taste the greens, so don’t knock it till you have tried it.
Creamy Green Smoothie
1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
1 banana, chopped
1 cup baby spinach, press in as much as you can
¼ cup or more coconut water
Blend all the ingredients together until smooth.Enjoy!
Coconut water is actually something I don’t like to drink. I cannot stand the taste and just don’t know how people are able to drink it on its own. However, I have read about all its great benefits and so I try to sneak a little in my smoothies so I don’t have to deal with the taste. The trick though is to never put too much, because then it will alter the taste of your smoothie.
What is your go-to breakfast when you going through a busy period in your life? Leave me a comment below.
Thanks for reading,Kisses
