Despite the resolutions and healthy New Year plans, it’s still pretty likely many of us have woken up feeling less than fantastic this morning. Realistically, January 1st can be a day to spend some time recovering, setting intentions for the next 52 weeks, and doing something small but significant to get the year off to a positive start.
This smoothie has everything you need to cure last night’s ‘one-too-manys’ and may give you some inspiration for future breakfast smoothie recipes. The healthy fats keep blood sugar stable and aid in cognitive function, the fruits and veg raise essential nutrient levels, and the optional extras hold valuable cleansing and mood-boosting properties.
