Almond Breeze Fruit Smoothie {Gluten Free}

unnamed (4)So, I woke up to a mountain of snow outside my window this morning – snow day! There is nothing like staying home in your pajamas and warm fuzzy socks.

This little delightful smoothie will awaken your senses and give you that energy boost you need for the long, cold day ahead.

This was quick and easy to make. All you need is a blender and a few ingredients.

You need: 1 handful of leafy greens {I used a mix of arugula, baby kale and spinach}, 1 scoop of whey protein powder, 1 cup of frozen fruit {this one had pineapples, strawberries & peaches}, 2 tbsp. chia seeds, 1 tbsp. flax seed, ½ cup water and ½ cup almond breeze {unsweetened}.

Just place all these ingredients into your blender. You do not need a fancy one for these smoothies. Pulse for about 5 minutes until the mixture is smooth.

Also – the use of almond milk is a healthy alternative to dairy milk. It’s lower in calories, packed with vitamin E, does not need to be refrigerated – and is great for raw food diets!

I poured the breakfast drink into a big mason jar. It’s fun to drink these out of thick colorful straws. It really feels beachy this way! Enjoy this sweet drink. Loaded with fiber, protein and naturally gluten free!
