So it’s still cold here… not so much cold but damp. I can see Spring coming, but I can’t quite touch it and lately it’s been just dreary. And while I enjoy oatmeal for breakfast, it’s oatmeal… know what I’m saying? So how did I fix that?
Simple. Fresh fruit, bright colours and citrus. Problem Solved!
This really simple smoothie will have you out the door with breakfast in no time, or help brighten up a dreary afternoon. It’s simple and can be made in under 5 minutes. Hello easy mornings!
- 1 blood orange
- ½ a grapefruit
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 frozen banana
- ¼ cup light coconut milk
- top with ½ tbsp cacao nibs (optional)
- Cut the orange and grapefruit into bits. Add to the blender along with the chia seeds, banana and coconut milk.
- Blend until mixed together. Top with cacao nibs!
When I wake up these days I try and enjoy something a little more “bright in flavour” and this really makes the most of a dreary day. The chia seeds I find help with keeping you ‘full’ a little longer, but you could easily add vanilla protein powder to make this really count.
