What is cool about making smoothie for myself is that I can be daring and playful with the ingredients. From adding yogurt, fruits, vegetables, milk, juice, even seeds and butter - the list is endless. I personally add Apple Cider Vinegar in my smoothie, just because I can't stand the flavor by itself! (but who can??) It's something I need to add in my diet for lots of health benefits. Stay tuned for an upcoming blog post about Apple Cider Vinegar,
Don't have time for coffee? Just add espresso powder! Looking to avoid constipation? Add chia seeds! Want your toddler to get some green in their diet? Add spinach and peanut butter - they won't even know it's there!
For me, smoothies are often a part of my breakfast. I want to feel energized, while having a satisfying meal in the morning. So, since we have added the new Almond Cranberry Granola to our products, I decided to add them in my liquid breakfast. With a hint of toasted almonds, and a little tartness from dried cranberry, this smoothie has became my favorite fiber rich and antioxidant drink I get to enjoy every morning.
