The Healthy Breakfast Ball

I love having something sweet in the morning, however, that doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be packed with sugar….or in the case of these breakfast balls, it doesn’t have to have sugar at all!

Not only are these great for breakfast, but also for on the go snacking!

Healthy Breakfast Balls:

1 cup mashed banana

1 cup extremely finely grated apple

1 1/2 cups oats

1/2 cup cranberries

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 cup dark chocolate

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3/4 cup frozen raspberries

Directions: 

Break apart the banana and mash in a small bowl. Add in the grated apple (which will have consistency of apple sauce) and mix in

I was pleasantly surprised to wake up to sun outside this morning (very unexpected after the 4 degree night last night). So I was definitely feeling like a smoothie or crush of some sort. The lovely girls at skinnyme tea sent me over some products to try (which so far I have been loving), so I decided to incorporate the Acai Tea and HealthyMe Tea in to my morning crush.

Directions: 

Infuse the two tea bags in hot water for about 5 minutes (you can do this with any kind of tea)

Pour the tea, a handful of raspberries, some coconut water and ice cubes in the Magic Bullet (the best purchase in my house wihtout a doubt)

Blend until fully combined

Might just be one of the best crushes I have ever made! Ps: how amazing is the jar that my sister bought while overseas!!
