Smoothie combinations with Truvia nectar via @thouswellblog

Breakfast has always been one of my favorite meals of the day, and smoothies have become a regular part of my morning routine over the past couple of years. Packing in as many fruits and vegetables to kick-start my morning is one of the best ways to the start the day, and can be super easy to do once you’ve found some good combinations that you like. My three favorite smoothie combinations include a classic green smoothie, a strawberry-banana combination, and a creamy (but dairy-free) almond cinnamon combo. When it comes to a delicious smoothie – especially a green one – adding a bit of sweetness can really pull all the flavors together. I never like adding extra sugar to my smoothie (that would just defeat the health benefits) so I love using Truvia nectar for a easily-mixed sweetener that’s low on the glycemic index and simply derived from the Stevia plant and honey. It’s a new product from Truvia that is perfect for all breakfast sweetener needs, from coffee to baked treats, but it’s one that you can feel good about using in your breakfast. Find the recipes for my favorite smoothie combinations after the jump!
