Take-To-Work Breakfast Smoothie - Spice & Dice

I always wait until I’m at work to eat breakfast. My mornings tend to be hectic and I prefer to eat in the relaxed environment of my workplace. I’ve packed everything from cereal and parfaits to oatmeal for work. This week I decided to try something different – travel-safe smoothies.

Take-To-Work Breakfast Smoothie - Spice & Dice

These are extremely easy to do and you can prepare them the night before! Just get all of your ingredients together, put them in a bowl, cover, and let sit overnight in the refrigerator. You can blend the ingredients the night before and store them in a mason jar in the fridge – but I prefer the fresher taste you get from blending it in the morning. The yogurt and almond milk tend to separate if they sit together for hours, too.
