Smoothie Morning Routine

As much as I would like to, aside my breakfast smoothie, there is little as a few light dinners per week I get to enjoy at home. Probably this is one of the reasons I started to consider breakfast my most important meal of the day. I have a full time job that I really enjoy, but I never liked the thought of getting up because I have to go to work. This is why I made breakfast time a transition I enjoy to the fullest between yesterday and today. I get up early and, besides brushing my teeth, what I do most often is to blend and photograph a new smoothie.

There is so much joy I take from choosing the ingredients, from tasting the new blend, from making the whole picture set up that I even started waking up earlier just so I’d have the time to do all that.

You don’t need to have fancy ingredients to make a nourishing tasty smoothie. I like to finish all my fruits before I go off and buy new ones so today I just prepared the old fashioned apple-banana smoothie, the only fruits I had at home after finishing all the berries two days ago. I pimped it with some nuts and seeds, mostly because an only-fruit breakfast is simply not enough for me.

For the beauty sake, I decorated today’s smoothie with some edible flowers from Microgreens. Lovely is not enough to describe them 🙂


Ingredients:

One ripe banana

A chopped apple

1 tbsp flax-seeds (for their omega 3 fatty acids)
4-5 cashews (for their magnesium content)

4-5 soaked almonds (for their digestive benefits)
filtered water

Blend all ingredients for approx. 2 minutes or until it becomes smooth to your liking. Decorate with edible flowers from Microgreens. Sip and enjoy!
