Introduction: Breakfast Smoothie
I love a breakfast smoothie because it is a good way to get fruits and vegetables into me first thing in the morning. I then face the day only needing 2 more servings of vegetables. YES! Here is the breakfast smoothie I make for myself each morning. You are free to change, rearrange, switch out, anything you want, after all, this smoothie is to make YOU happy. Let’s go.
First, add 1 cup milk to your blender. I use skim milk, you can substitute anything you want, you just need a liquid.
Add 4-6 oz. yogurt. I use plain yogurt, add whatever kind your little heart desires.
One scoop protein powder; I use soy, sometimes I use whey powder. Protein helps to prevent hunger until around noon.
One big handful of fresh spinach; this adds all kinds of vitamins and minerals, although it does give the smoothie a funky color.
One Banana; mine are approaching the over ripe stage, but they are blended, right, you don’t have to see the bruising, right. So in it goes.
One cup frozen berries; your choice. My favorites are black berries and Marion berries. In they go.
Blend, blend, blend, until you can’t tell what is what.
Wow, this is about 24 oz. of blended goodness. If you want, you may add a little sugar or honey, or Slenda, or Stevia, or whatever; without the sweetener, about 400 calories.
Hmmmmmmmm. Breakfast is served. Enjoy!
