Cherry Almond Smoothie

Servings: 1

Prep Time: 3 min

 

As we all know, smoothies are wonderful "on the go" foods since they're easily transportable and have more fiber and protein than juice. But many smoothies people make are still full of just high sugar fruits, which can spike sugar levels and make you tired and hungry quickly.

Cherries contain a lower sugar content, and they combine perfectly with almonds and avocado. This gives you a smoothie full of healthy proteins and fats to keep your energy stable throughout the morning. It's also unbelievably delicious and creamy.

  • 1/2 C almond milk (or coconut milk)

  • 1 Tbsp of xylitol or other sugar (sweeten to taste)

  • (can always add collagen protein or any other kind of vanilla or almond protein powder)
