I’ve put my coffee days behind me, well somewhat. I occasionally have coffee but I am trying so hard to be healthy in the mornings so that I have energy all day, and not just the first part of it. Making a smoothie everyday has been great because I know what I am putting in me will stay with me till lunch and give me a bit of energy throughout the day. I recently heard that coconut oil gives you energy. I am not really sure if its true, but I love it for so many reasons, and I love the taste, so I thought why not? I have been putting a bit of yogurt in my smoothies instead, but I am trying coconut oil now. I also will occasionally substitute peanut butter for the almond butter, or I might put both in. I also put a heaping tablespoon of almond butter which might end up being more like 2 tablespoons of almond butter. I actually eyeball everything and don’t measure. But the recipe above should yield good results, and depending on which ingredient you like best you can add a little more or less or whatever. Experimental smoothies sometimes end up being the most delicious.
