On a normal day I don’t have too much time making breakfast before I go to gym so generally I just make a quick smoothie. I love smoothies because its a quick and easy way to work your daily fruit allowance into your diet. In addition a lot of research suggest that replacing a meal with liquid drinks is beneficial for weightless. Getting enough fruits and vegetables into yoru diet is also good for your skin and your digestive system. .. so why not have a smoothie then. Right?
My three favourite go to smoothies are berry, blueberry and a peanut-butter protein smoothie.
This is definitely one of the easiest smoothies to make. I usually make two with one small tub of Greek or vanilla yogurt, a hand full of blueberries and about 1/2 a cup of milk. I pop everything in a blender and Viola! I usually look at the consistency of the smoothie to determine whether or not to add more milk. My husband prefers it if I had a drop of honey to make it sweeter.
Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie.
This one is especially good when I’m doing a whole lot of weight training. It gives me a bit of extra protein in my diet and the sugar in the banana helps my body to absorb the suppliments in the protein powder to assist me with my workouts. All you need is 1/2 of milk or water ( for lower calories) 1/2 frozen banana, a scoop of chocolate flavoured protein powder and a table spoon of peanut butter all mixed together in a blender
Kiwi and Strawberry Breakfast Smoothie
This one is also super easy. I blend half a tub of a small yogurt with 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries and some milk then pour it in a glass and do the same with the Kiwi or mango for a layered effect. Alternatively I blend any kind of frozen fruits with a tub of yogurt and some milk, depending on what’s in season or what I was in the mood for.
Breakfast smoothies are an amazingly nutritious breakfast alternative and the whole family will love it.3
