If you're not on a regular schedule, both chicory root and prunes might be just what the doctor ordered. Chicory root has been shown to increase intestinal bacteria – which aids digestion – and prunes are more effective than fiber supplements!
To a small heat-proof bowl, add chicory, prunes and 1 cup boiling water. Let soak for 10 minutes, until prunes are softened. Transfer mixture (including liquid) to a blender. Add almond milk and almond butter and blend. Gradually add ice to desired consistency.
Smoothies are the ultimate take-to-go breakfast, but it’s easy to fall into a smoothie rut. Our secret? Switch up the flavor by adding matcha, a finely ground green tea that adds sweet, earthy flavor and a power punch of antioxidants.
