Soaking your nuts activates them. This means they are now a live food containing essential enzymes that will improve digestion & absorption of nutrients.
Soaking your sun dried fruits of choice will create a liquid that can act as your natural sweetener replacing refined sugars, artificial sweeteners & nasty chemicals.
Pop your banana in the fridge or freezer the night before which will add a nice ice touch to your smoothie.
Depending on the consistency of your smoothie feel free to add some filtered water with your almond milk if you find the smoothie to thick.
When using cinnamon powder always make sure its sugar free & pure as many on the market contain high amounts of refined sugars.
