Nuts for Almonds

Mornings seem to be the quickest time of the day, with a lot to remember before we walk out the door, breakfast often is the last thing on our minds.

Smoothies are a great way to deliver a nutritional punch on a tight schedule. Often smoothies are known to have a dairy base but for those who can’t have dairy there are many alternative “milks” and almond milk is one of those. Almond milk (sweeten, unsweetened, or flavored) is gluten-free, promotes good cholesterol balance in the body, and is low in carbs. Read more about the medicinal benefits of almonds HERE.

A delicious addition to any smoothie is seasonal fruit. This time of year is known for fresh strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. Try something new and enjoy!
