Super Healthy Pomegranate-Cranberry-Almond-Smoothie (Vegan) : It tastes divine and is filled with nutrients-antioxidant that super charge you with energy. It’s a blend of fruit with almond and coconut milk.Let’s talk ‘New Year Resolutions‘ today…I’m sure many of you must have made tons of resolutions for this year and one of them would be to ‘Stay Healthy or Reach a Certain Health Goal‘ and I’ve a similar New Year resolution with just an added goal, that is to eat breakfast EVERYDAY! I know, we all want to do it but ‘How many of us really does’? I’m not going to ask you a reason for skipping one but will definitely say that mine was because of ‘not enough time to make one or just doesn’t know what to make’. As the first rule of a healthy breakfast is to try keep it fresh, natural and full of proteins (important to jump start the day with energy n did you know they help form antibodies too). So this year, my Breakfast Goal is to have smoothies cause:
* They are super-duper healthy.
** They are soooooo easy to make
*** You can customize it to everyone’s need – (which is really BIG for me)In that quest, I actually shopped for a variety of milk (regular/coconut/almond), yogurt (different flavors), nut butter (almond, peanut, cashew – these are for proteins n good fat), fruits/veggies along with some coconut water and dry-fruits. I’ll be making different combinations and will keep sharing the recipes of the one’s we actually loved the most. And, I wanted to start with my absolute favorite and gorgeous looking ‘Super Healthy Pomegranate-Cranberry-Almonds-Smoothie‘ ! It’s seriously tastes so good, that we drank 2 glasses of it a stretch. It’s made using coconut milk (the BEST for this combination) which adds this smooth yet delicious texture, pomegranate-cranberry which is a great great source of antioxidants and almond + almond butter added for protein. This smoothie is so beautiful to look that whoever tried it, instantly fell in love with the color n taste. It’s like drinking dessert but just that it’s actually healthy and so good for you. It’s also the quickest breakfast for ‘On-the-Go‘ people which is actually packed with so much nutrients. I wish you ‘All the Best’ in achieving your New Year Resolution and keep checking this space for more such healthy and quick recipes. I’ll definitely work with you and myself to help achieve our ‘Healthy Eating – Healthy You’ Goals.
