Most mornings I will either have an omelette (usually with spinach or blueberries and cinnamon) or a smoothie. For the most part this is because I know exactly how my body and blood sugars react to them. For me knowledge is power and if it means I have the same breakfast for three days in a row just to have a good blood sugar then that’s what I do!
Smoothies are great for breakfast as you can pack them full of good fats, protein, vitamins and nutrients. This “Blueberry Almond Butter Smoothie” is my favourite of the moment as it’s creamy and filling, with the sweetness of the blueberries and the nuttiness from the almond butter. I also add in a couple of prunes to sweeten it very slightly and to add a pretty hefty dose of fibre.
If you are not an almond butter fan then you could substitute for hazelnut butter, cashew nut butter or a seed butter.
- 1 Cup Fresh Blueberries (alternatively ½ fresh and ½ frozen)
- 300ml Almond Milk
- 1 tbsp Almond Butter
- 2 Dried Prunes
- In to a smoothie maker (I use the Nutribullet) place all your ingredients and blitz until smooth and creamy
- Add more almond milk if you would like a thinner consistency
- Serve straight away
