Cozy Winter Smoothie

Posted · Add Comment



As an ex-sugar-addict, I love when I come across a recipe that is naturally sweet and satisfying, like this smoothie, that I found on

It’s just in time for winter to help satisfy any sweet cravings around the holidays, especially when refined sweet treats are everywhere you turn.

The dates give this smoothie the perfect sweetness, and the healthy omega-3 fatty acids from the chia seeds and hemp seeds, will not only energize you, but keep you feeling full longer to prevent mindless snacking in-between meals.

Free of refined sugar and dairy, this is perfect for a quick breakfast, or afternoon snack.

Kids will love it, too!

I will be making this smoothie a lot this winter. Enjoy!
