I absolutely love to start my day with a smoothie. I have never been really interested in eating a big breakfast. I was one of those kids that literally had to gag down breakfast before going to school each day. Although, if I don’t eat breakfast at all, I am sooo hungry by mid-morning. So, for me, drinking a smoothie is an easy way to get the nutrition that I need without having to eat a huge breakfast.
But having the exact same smoothie everyday can get a bit boring, so I like to change it up with different seasonal fruits and flavors. However, I do like to freeze fresh fruit when it is in season and use it in my smoothies in the winter… I must admit that adding in frozen fruit gives my smoothie a much creamier texture (almost like a milkshake!), so sometimes I use a frozen banana or add a few ice cubes just to give it that creaminess!
Very Berry Banana Yogurt Smoothie
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 strawberries
- handful of raspberries
- 1 scoop of plain or greek yogurt
- 1½ cup almond milk
- ½ cup coconut water
- ¼ cup Vanilla Juice Plus+ Complete protein
Blend until smooth…and enjoy!
**Add less milk if you want a thicker consistency.
*You can use any protein powder that you like, but I prefer the Juice Plus+ Complete because it provides hidden veggies as it is a whole food based protein shake!
