Let’s talk ‘New Year Resolutions‘ and about this gorgeous Super Healthy Pomegranate Cranberry Almond Smoothie 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 have 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 do’?
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’.
Ingredients for Pomegranate Cranberry Almond Smoothie
Coconut Milk – you can use any other flavor or even yogurt of choice
Cranberries – fresh or frozen
Almond Butter – optional
Ice or Water
Ginger + Turmeric – to make it super powerful
As the first rule of a healthy breakfast is to try to 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),.
Then fruits/veggies along with some coconut water and dry-fruits.
I’ll be making different combinations and will keep sharing the recipes of the ones we actually loved the most.
And, I wanted to start with my absolute favorite and gorgeous looking Super Healthy Pomegranate Cranberry Almond Smoothie !
It’s made using coconut milk (the BEST for this combination) which adds this smooth yet delicious texture.
Pomegranate-cranberry which is a great source of antioxidants and almond + almond butter added for protein & ofcourse taste – Yummmm!!!
Also, I love adding freshly grated ginger + a pinch of turmeric powder to this smoothie for an extra kick of antioxidants & better immunity.
This Pomegranate Cranberry Almond 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 many nutrients.
