The new recipe I’m sharing this week is the breakfast smoothie I’ve been drinking this month.
Don’t let the green color of the drink turn you off! It tastes better than it looks. I took this recipe off of a Pinterest board and tweaked it a little bit to make it work for the kids and myself.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
1/2 cup of water
Throw all of these ingredients in a blender (I use a Magic Bullet) for 1-2 minutes. Enjoy!
Obviously adjust ingredients to your needs and tastes. If this is your first experiment with smoothies maybe skip the kale and add spinach instead or don’t add any greens. Spinach has less taste than kale. This smoothie keeps me going until mid-morning. And because it is gluten-free plus the added protein from the yogurt I don’t have that energy crash an hour later. The kids love it and have it a couple of mornings a week with me, but sometimes they choose their Honey Nut Cheerios over Mom’s smoothie.
I plan on substituting coconut milk or coconut yogurt for the greek yogurt this week. I haven’t tried that yet, but I’d like to cut dairy out of the smoothie and my health conscious sister suggested this. If you’d like to cut dairy out of your diet too, this is another option.
