January is flying by.

By this point of 2015, many of you have made new year’s resolutions to eat healthier… and then stopped eating healthy. I don’t blame you. It’s hard to stick with it – I have fallen off the healthy wagon many, many times.

I’m off it right now, in fact.

I was looking for healthy recipes the other day and I got a little overwhelmed. Maybe you feel the same way?

I was so concerned about eating healthy and not eating that doughnut, or piece of cake, or whatever, that I didn’t really want to worry about some complicated healthy recipe.

Solution: smoothies.

Throw everything in a blender and you’re good to go. Healthy eaters figured this out a long time ago and smoothie recipes have been filling my rss feed reader for the last few week. I may be off the healthy wagon but I’m jumping on the smoothie train.

Blackberry Apple Smoothie Recipe

Normally, I am a blueberry and raspberry girl only. But I just love, love, love how juicy and plump these blackberries are and had to use them instead. So happy I did.

Instead of sugar and milk (my usual smoothie ingredients,) I used agave nectar and almond milk. That, paired with the fruit and a little surprise – a handful of spinach! – makes for a delicious and healthy smoothie.

If you’re looking for something sweet, use more agave nectar. I just use a touch because I didn’t want to take away from the flavors of the blackberries and apple.

Been very into smoothies lately and look forward to trying this one. They are just so wonderfully easy and endlessly customizable I can't imagine ever getting bored of them. But I said that about a few boyfriends back in the day too ;-) Thanks for linking up at #SaucySaturdays.
