Morning Glory Smoothie

I have an obsession with morning glory. Muffins, obviously, but also overnight oats, and now this morning glory smoothie.

Apples, carrots, walnuts, coconut and cinnamon pureed together with frozen bananas, your choice of milk (I love soy vanilla) and vanilla extract make for a seriously amazing smoothie.

There really is no better way to start your day.

Besides being incredibly delicious, there’s something extra special about this smoothie. It’s featured in my new cookbook – The 28-Day DASH Diet Weight Loss Program!

The title seems like a mouthful, but it’s really just a cookbook chock full of 100 scrumptious recipes that are wholesome, nutritious and really, really yummy, plus a bunch of useful information on how to eat and live in a balanced way.

This smoothie is just one of the many breakfast recipes in the book, plus there are soups, salads, sides, meatless mains, seafood and meat mains, snacks AND desserts. There’s something in this cookbook for EVERYONE!

Get your copy of my DASH cookbook!

For the next several months, I’ll be giving you a sneak peek of a few of my favorite recipes from the book, but if you want all 100 of them, you should grab a copy!
