I have really been loving smoothies while I am on this cleanse. They have been the perfect morning breakfast, light, but still substantial enough to keep me going until lunch. A lot of mornings I get up and I am out the door before 7am for Mysore yoga (a self-led Ashtanga yoga practice) and I don’t eat beforehand. When I get home (or to the studio) I am hungry but pleasantly relaxed and not ravenous for a large breakfast. The smoothies are perfect. I have been playing around with all the different fresh and frozen organic fruit and fruit juices I have, some have almond milk, others don’t and I have added in the ground flax-seeds when I think I could use it (these can certainly be left out in this recipe or any of the others). This smoothie was so delicious. I am so obsessed and amazed with almond milk. I have never been a big milk drinker, but I really don’t care much for soy milk either, when I tried almond milk I knew that was the one for me.
This was yesterday’s smoothie, cleanse day number 7! I am now in week 2 and excited to experiment with new smoothies and other breakfast options. Got any smoothie recipes to share?
Peaches and Cream Smoothie
1 cup organic unsweetened almond milk
1 cup frozen organic peaches
1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla
1 tablespoon ground organic flax-seed
small drizzle of honey (you can add more if you wish, I am trying to go very light with the sweeteners during the cleanse)
Combine ingredients in blender and blend until frothy and smooth.
