The Perfect Skinny Breakfast Smoothie
The best part of this recipe for a perfect skinny breakfast smoothie is that it’s so easy to change up the ingredients and still have a light smoothie. Try different combinations to keep it fresh and to keep from getting bored with the flavor. A smoothie also makes a great afternoon snack or a light dinner, so don’t just limit to breakfast.
1/2 C frozen fruit (bananas, berries, apples, mangos, pineapple…)
1/2 C green leafy veggies such as spinach or kale
1 C liquid (this can be anything you’d like to try, milk, almond or cashew milk, coconut milk, green tea…)
The following are optional but ramp up the flavor.
For more creaminess, add 1/4 cup greek yogurt, or 1/2 an avocado.
Make it sweet with 1/2 tablespoon of raw honey, real maple syrup, or agave nectar
Spice it up with 1/2 teaspoon of ginger, cinnamon, cayenne, cocoa powder, or turmeric
Add fruit, greens and liquid to your blender or Nutribullet, then pick and choose your optional ingredients, place the lid on the blender and flip the on switch to high. Puree until well blended and not large chunks of fruit.
If you’re using frozen fruit and cold milk, you shouldn’t need to add ice, but if you want an icier drink, add some ice cubes and blend well.
