Purple Haze Smoothie
This is the breakfast smoothie I made the other morning. It's delicious. I will probably wait until summer or warmer weather to make another one, seeing as how sipping on a freezing cold smoothie in a freezing cold house is a sure way to get the most severe brain freeze you've ever experienced. I named it Purple Haze because, well, it's purple and it has a special hazelnut honey that I bought in the Dominican Republic in it.
Purple Haze is GOOD. And it fills you up. AND...and this is the best part...it seems like a dessert but it's GOOD FOR YOU! HOORAY! Something that's good for you that doesn't taste like a cardboard box!!
Here's What I Did:
1 cup of frozen blueberries
1 1/2 cups frozen peaches
1/2 cup chocolate almond milk
1/2 cup unsweet almond milk
1/2 cup of Greek yogurt, plain
6 ice cubes
A good drizzle of Hazlenut honey
A scoop of Almond Butter (because I am so in love with this stuff, I put it in everything.)
Blend everyone up and go to town!! You can substitute regular honey for the hazelnut honey. And you can throw anything you like into the mix. Flavored juices, flax seed, any flavor nut butter, etc. The world is your smoothie. Suck it up. And GO STEELERS!!
