PARTNER POST: Discover how delicious dairy-free sweet and savory cooking can be with DREAM Ultimate Almond.
This dairy-free, nutrient-packed smoothie is loaded with power to get you through to lunch. Plus, it is beautiful enough to start your day with a smile.
I’ll be the first one to admit…I’ve never been good about breakfast.
Weekend brunches YES!! (I’m pro level, in fact), but if we’re talking about a easy healthy weekday-in-a-hurry morning meals that are more than a cappuccino…well that is where I fall flat. In fact, lately I’m realizing that I’m not fueling myself enough to even make it to lunch which brings on a cranky crazy hunger that’s starting to creep upon me earlier and earlier due said breakfast-issues. Yikes….time to resolve that.
I know smoothies are nothing new, but it’s something that’s never been in my own regimen. Why!? I know. It’s the perfect way to get everything you need to make it through the first part of your day, easily and probably waaayyyyy less than my local coffee shop run. So I decided to give a go…and the results are feeling (and looking) pretty fabulous.
Inspired by one of my favorite things (outside of food obvi) plants – I decided to turn this new morning ritual into something a little extra special by dressing up this smoothie action up like a terrarium.
The new DREAM Ultimate Almond beverage can be found now at Whole Foods and soon at your local Sprouts. Click here for a coupon.
