Breakfast can be a hassle in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the morning. Many people are looking for quick, transportable meals for breakfast, or they will skip it altogether. The breakfast smoothie is a great solution: you can prep the blender the night before, take it out of the fridge, give a quick whir and pour it into a go-cup. The smoothie has a blend of protein and carbohydrates to fill you up and keep your energy levels stable until lunch, and with only 200 calories a serving, it’s a great way to start the morning.
Frozen fruit is not only convenient, it’s also the best thing to throw into a smoothie. The orange juice adds a little extra sweetness and can be left out if desired. We are using peaches and bananas, but really any fruit can be used: great substitutions are a triple berry blend with grape, acai, or pomegranate juice or 2 bananas and 1/2 pound of strawberries with orange or orange/mango juice.
