Black Beauty Smoothie

Serves 4 Rated:
by Tenina Holder

I have just bid farewell to my last house guests of the Christmas season, and as much as I will miss them all, it feels like it is time to get back on track with my normal eating habits. I have been waking up to hotel style breakfasts for a month at least and this just has to stop! No more eggs, bacon, avocado on toast. No more waffles with all the deadly trimmings, no more breakfasts out and about where I eat outrageous things and all before I have had the time to develop an appetite.

I am not a breakfast person at the best of times, (Even though my very popular 'What's for Breakfast?' ebook might lead you to believe otherwise.) Don't get me wrong, I can down a hotel breakfast along with the best of you, and probably outwit, outplay and outlast you all...but on a day to day basis, I love a good Crio Bru first thing and then it will be nearly lunchtime before I get around to actually eating something.

But I digress...kissed those guests goodbye, along with the decadent breakfasts of late. Needed a quick healthy shot in the arm (mouth) to start my day, spinach in the fridge, cranberry and macqui berry powders in the cupboard...and voila. (Don't we all need a quick healthy start to the day like this?) Enjoy.
