Kick Off Your Resolutions With a Healthy Energy Smoothie

Something about the overindulgence of the holiday season really inspires me to make promises to myself to be a better, more in-control version of myself once the new year begins. "No more chocolates after New Years",  I whisper to myself in the dark as I rip open another Godiva chocolate bar. What I mean to say is, I have been surviving off of pure sugar for over a week now and I'm ready to wean myself off. If you are feeling the same way, try making this nutrient-packed smoothie for breakfast on New Year's day. You'll feel better for it.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup almond milk

2 hand fulls fresh spinach leaves

1/2 banana

1/2 apple

1 cup frozen blueberries

2 tablespoons chia seeds

Throw all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add more almond milk if you want a thinner consistency.  This smoothie can pass for a light breakfast.  Enjoy!

Did you make any resolutions this year?

Healthy, but I don't use bananas in smoothies.  They have too much sugar.

I haven't made any resolutions...yet.
