Was one of your goals for the new year to make healthier choices? Me too and with lots of travel and busy schedules this month it’s been much more of a challenge than I expected. So lately I’ve been looking for quick, easy and healthy recipes and my new morning favorite is this Creamsicle Breakfast Smoothie.
It tastes just like the iconic vanilla-and-orange popsicles we used to love as kids. That was always what I would pick when the ice cream truck would come by, oh the memories! But, this creamsicle breakfast smoothie is a balanced breakfast with protein and essential vitamins to help you start your day off right. Plus, it’s quick and easy enough for even the most hectic schedules or mornings which will help you stick to those goals for a happier and healthier you in the new year.
