Easy Yummy Healthy Breakfast Smoothie in 5 Minutes (Organic)Saturday, January 18, 2014
After getting a Magic Bullet for Christmas, I have been obsessed with juicing and smoothies :)
My favorite time to make a smoothie is for breakfast, because it's so fast to make, and I can bring it with me when I drive to school in the morning.
Everyday I throw something new together, and they always turn out SO yummy when I use fruit. I'm still trying to get used to green juice and perfecting it, so if you have any yummy green juice recipes please comment them below!
This smoothie is sweet, yet somewhat tart, but can be adjusted to your liking. It also keeps me full and satisfied until lunchtime. It's healthy and packed with nutrients! And of course all my ingredients are organic :)
Here's all you need:
-Plain Lowfat (or nonfat) yogurt (I prefer Greek but couldn't find a big size at Kroger)
-Granola (This is totally optional, but I find it keeps me fuller longer when adding it. You could use oats, flaxseeds, etc.)
-Strawberries (Leave the leaves on the berries! They're full of nutrients and you can't even tell they're there when blended)
As far as proportions, I don't really measure, I just throw in handfuls :) I do about 3-4 tablespoons of the yogurt, 2 tablespoons of granola, and a handful of berries. You can leave the kiwi out or use less depending on how tart you want it to be. Also, adding more banana will make it more sweet. I did about 1/2 banana, but add more and it'll be more filling!
Mix everything together in a high speed blender and you're done! I used the Magic Bullet, but a regular blender should do.
Pin the images if you decide to try it out yourself! Leave me a comment with your favorite smoothie concoctions :)
