Eggnog Breakfast Smoothie

FullSizeRenderI am going to keep this blog short and sweet. Eggnog has a ridiculous amount of sugar in it. It also contains an insane amount of calories that will add to the belly bulge of the season. With this smoothie you get all of the same flavours but avoid the belly bulge. Lets face it there is enough temptation over the holidays with all of the extra food and desserts. Lets put the egg nog back on the shelf and enjoy the flavours while boosting our health.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • a handful of ice
  • 1-2 dates
  • a little squeeze of lemon
  • Water to cover
  • 1/2-1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 sprinkle of nutmeg (I use freshly grated)
  • a pinch of high quality sea salt
  • 1 serving of high quality vanilla protein powder

Blend all ingredients in a blender on high except the protein powder. Then add protein and blend until combined

Please note - if you do not have a high powdered blender and you like things super creamy, you might want to blend cashews, dates and water, then strain through a fine mesh colander.

 

Happy Holidays!! Hope each and every one of you enjoy a wonderful holiday season spending time with those you love the most.
