Hey, hey! I hope you’ve all had a great week.
I wanted to pop in quickly to share a new smoothie and salad combo that I’m loving this week.
The star ingredients of the smoothie are pumpkin, almond butter and chocolate coconut granola. The team at Cascadian Farm sent me two different flavors of their new Protein Granola to check out and the Dark Chocolate Coconut is AMAZING. I’ve been making this smoothie and topping it with the granola all week. Here are the details.
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/3 cup frozen blueberries
- 4-5 frozen strawberries
- 1 large pitted date
- 1/4 cup 2% plain greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
I have eaten a variation of this salad the last 4 days in a row. It’s simple, delicious and fall-ish.
- Pears or apples
- Roasted beets
- Dried cranberries
- Walnuts or sliced almonds
- Goat Cheese
- Deli turkey
- Aged balsamic (and today I also used a little honey mustard…love to mix!)
I get a lot of questions about what I put in my smoothies and how I come up with my salad combos so hopefully this is helpful and gives you a little inspiration!
What’s been your go-to breakfast or lunch for the week?
