Smoothies and eggs are our morning routine. Simple, easy and chock full of nutrients to give us both a good start for the day. As most busy mama’s know making 53 different meals in the morning is a giant pain in the butt. So I make the same thing for both Bo and I every day. The one thing I mix up, is the smoothie.
I’ve shared a few of our favourites in the past, but this particular little beauty is getting a real workout at the moment… it’s just that little bit decadent with a little chocolatey twist and is paired nicely with a morning walk and a good episode of one of my favourite podcasts with Bo strapped into the stroller. It’s full of good things for your body and even better, it tastes amazing.
Get it in ya.
The Raspberry Super Smoothie.
1 big cup of fresh or frozen raspberries (I use locally farmed and frozen from my farmers market)
1 tablespoon of raw Maca/Cacao blend powder.
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
Fresh milk (whatever floats your boat)
1 cup of Kefir (or yoghurt)
Blend until smooth, keep adding milk until it’s the right consistency for you. Share with your favourite little (or big!) person for an excellent start to the day.
Do you use Maca root powder? I bought the blend by accident (I was going for raw cacao) in the health food shop a few weeks ago, and I’m still not sure what to think…
