Cranberry Apple Crisp Shake

I know it’s not technically New Years anymore but it’s never too late to make healthier choices.  It’s something I’m always striving to do but continually falling short.

I’ve recently been trying to make breakfast every morning.  And when I say breakfast I mean actual breakfast; unlike the leftover brownie or last cookie from yesterdays recipe development.  It has happened before…guilty as charged.  While both of those things contain eggs which make them totally suitable for breakfast in my book by mid afternoon my energy is lacking and I’m pretty grouchy.

A grouchy mommy is no fun and since time out isn’t really an option nor is a nap I had to make some changes.  Starting my morning off with fruits and vegetables  has curbed that inner grouch and helps me check off a few of my daily requirements.  It doesn’t mean I still don’t like dessert for breakfast which is why creating a shake with the same flavors of a Cranberry Apple Crisp was right up my alley.

I froze the new Diet Cranberry Juice from Ocean Spray into ice cubes and added them with a few other ingredients to make this low cal version of crisp on the go.  It’s dessert for breakfast that I don’t have to feel guilty about!
