After making enough food to satisfy the stomachs of six starving tiny humans I often don’t feel like eating the same thing or don’t feel like investing more time to make food for myself. Smoothies are a simple way for me to pack in nutrients without spending a lot of extra time in the kitchen.
Here’s what I had this morning:
Here’s what was in it:
3/4 cup plain, homemade yogurt
1 tsp maple syrup
Splash of vanilla
1/8 tsp spirulina powder
1 raw egg yolk
1 Tbls coconut oil
I find it helpful to add ingredients while the blender is on (especially when you add the coconut oil).
It is filling, it is healthy, a little tart and it is tasty. I feel a boost of energy after drinking this in the morning. Something I desperately need to continue chasing my children for the rest of the day! Sometimes I add frozen fruit for fun. Give it a try! Note: if you’re going to attempt the raw egg yolk, be sure to research your egg source carefully first. I actually buy a specific brand of egg just for the purpose of eating raw; I wouldn’t do this with just any egg. Hopefully, I’ll be able to use the eggs we get from our new little flock of hens later this year!
