Anybody who knows me, knows that I like to start my mornings with a delicious smoothie (I like to call them milkshakes as it seems like more of a treat). Depending on what is in my fridge or freezer at the moment, I tend to switch up the ingredients making for a new and exciting breakfast each morning. I say freezer because over the summer I pick all kinds of wonderful berries in the forest and in my garden including raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, Saskatoon Berries (a berry native to Saskatchewan) etc and freeze them. There is nothing healthier, tastier, environmentally friendly or satisfying than picking your own berries!! I also like to add nuts to my milkshake which is a trick that I picked up in Peru. Not only does the nuts give the most creamy delicious flavour, but they fill your belly for hours and they are so so so healthy for you!!
So if you want to give the milkshake a try here is a bit of a recipe or rather what I put in my milkshake this morning.
A handful of the following:
yoghurt (4% m.f)
walnuts (good for your brain)
1/2 cup of soy milkCiao,
