This was inspired by the smoothie that everyone was going loco over because it’s Jennifer Aniston’s breakfast go-to. And you know Jennifer Aniston is probably doing a lot of things right because:
Anyway, the one I made for myself is not reallyyy the same thing because she likes all sorts of chocolate cocoa powder and I just…don’t. That, coupled with the fact that she uses maca powder and I couldn’t find any at Trader Joe’s. If you’ve ever been to Trader Joe’s in NYC, you know you pretty much give up on doing anything else after because by the time you’re out of there you felt like you just came back from battle. So, even though I still plan on getting maca powder from a health food store at some point, I just didn’t have some on me in time to make this breakfast smoothie. [Update: I just bought some at the health food store — it ain’t cheap at $23 for a 8 oz bag. But here’s hoping the health benefits are worth it].
But, it still has a lot of good stuffs: protein, omega 3s, antioxidants. And PS, I’ve been making all my smoothies in a new Nutri Ninja Blender I started using — it’s really powerful and comes with different sized pitchers so I can easily make smaller portions on the go too. Will write more about it in my next post!
1 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
2 tsp Carrington Farms flax chia blend
1/4 cup frozen organic blueberries
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 frozen banana
10-15 sprouted almonds (just let raw almonds soak overnight for this!)
This much gives you a full tall glass that really fills you up. Try it and let me know what you think. Or you know, do the real Jennifer Aniston smoothie because she’s arguably winning at life.
