I’m not a breakfast person and I am not a fan of early mornings, but all of this changed when I made this Autumn Beginnings Smoothie.
Lately, I’ve been trying to wake up earlier to get a quieter, slower start to the day, but the result is that waking up early means one will probably get hungry before lunch. So my solution to the breakfast problem has been smoothies!
Smoothies are quick to make, healthy, with minimal cleanup, and easy on the stomach. Plus they can pack an assortment of beneficial nutrients, including fiber and healthy fats to keep hunger away for hours.
In an attempt to keep up the routine without getting bored, I’ve started to experiment a little more with different ingredients. This smoothie recipe reminds me of the autumn season that is getting closer and closer by the week, and I’m super excited to share it with you.
For this smoothie, the combination of ingredients includes avocado and blueberries, but also fall favorites like pear, carrots, celery and my favorite fall ingredient, cinnamon. Weird combination, I know! I even tossed in some cacao beans, dried dates and basil leaves for good measure and a little topping decoration.
This autumn inspired smoothie was:
So here it is, a short and sweet little recipe that is creamy and easy to drink.
