YOU’RE SWEET ENOUGH! - Level 1 & 2 Friendly Recipe  

I keep going back to this recipe when I feel like something sweet in the morning yet won’t make me feel hungry 1 hr later and frankly speaking - this is the problem with so many smoothies some of which I used to do early on in my health journey - THEY’RE LOADED WITH FRUITS, LACKING ENOUGH FATS AND PROTEINS

Fats and Proteins are slow energy sources, together they will keep your blood sugar stable and your hunger in check as they will leave you satisfied and full for a longer time ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

By no means am I saying carbs are bad, ideally you want to opt for the combination of FAT+PROTEIN+CARBS+FIBERS for your breakfast to avoid sugar cravings and spikes in blood sugar ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Recipe:

  • 1/2 cooked and cooled sweet potato 
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 2 tablespoons cacao or carob powder (you can also use half/half - what I do)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 3/4 to 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or @ecomil coconut milk 
  • 1 scoop collagen or protein powder (optional but recommended)
  • 3/4 cup frozen raspberry + 1/4 cup to top
  • dash of ceylon cinnamon
  • coconut flakes or crunchy ingredient of choice for garnish⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Instructions:

  • Blend all in ingredients except raspberries.
  • Add in raspberries and blend again.
  • Top with more raspberries and coconut flakes or your crunchy ingredient of choice!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Voila!
