Baby Brain Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

Baby-Brain-Blueberry-Muffin-Smoothie

Like most parents, what I feed my children is extremely important to me, especially my baby. When Taylor turned one, I started to feed her smoothies. She mostly just drank a little bit from my smoothies when I made them. It wasn’t until recently that I decided to make a baby smoothie especially for her. This baby smoothie recipe has 2 tablespoons of Baby Brain Organics, which are specially blended seeds designed for healthy brain and body development in our littles. I fed this smoothie to both of my girls and Lauren loved the purple colour too.

High Fiber Breakfast Smoothie

High Fiber Breakfast Smoothie | www.smoothieburst.comOatmeal is a serious breakfast staple in our house. When I was pregnant with Taylor, I ate it every single morning. Yes, for nine months straight! I now realize there wasn’t much balance happening here, but there is no sense arguing with a pregnant person.

For a super quick and easy breakfast we now sometimes eat instant oatmeal. This is what I ate when I was pregnant. I buy a natural, unsweetened version. It’s important to read the label on instant oatmeal as most of them are packed with sugar and don’t end up being that healthy for you in the end.

I like to add rolled oats into my breakfast smoothies. They are wheat free and 100% whole grain. Many athletes consume rolled oats in their diet. They find that the high content of complex carbohydrates and water-soluble fiber encourages slow digestion and stabilizes blood-glucose levels.

One tip to making a great breakfast smoothie is to ensure there is a combination of fiber, protein and healthy fats. These three items together help you stay full longer.

In this Breakfast Smoothie, I’ve combined raspberries, chia seeds, and rolled oats, which are three high fiber foods. There is 30 grams of fiber in this smoothie. Hence the name.

It was truly delicious. I hope you enjoy!

Cinnamon Burst Smoothie

Cinnamon_Burst_Smoothie | www.smoothieburst.com

If you’re following a clean eating diet, then you know how important it is to have protein for breakfast and after your workouts. I find that when I don’t eat protein first thing in the morning I end up snacking all day long.

This Cinnamon Burst Smoothie recipe is a delicious creamy blend of organic almond butter, banana and cinnamon with just the perfect amount of sweetness. The organic almond butter offers a combination of healthy fats and protein and the banana and dates offer the perfect amount of sweetness while the cinnamon packs a powerful punch of flavor.

Adding in the maca is completely optional. I enjoy it in the morning as it acts as a caffeine free energizer and since I am trying really hard not to drink any caffeine I really enjoy this. Enjoy!
