I like to make smoothies for breakfast. Not only are they fast and filling, I get at least a couple servings of fruit and can control exactly what goes in the smoothie. Our blender makes smooties – as evidenced by speed 6 below:
Regardless of what you call them, here is a nice basic recipe to get your creative smootie juices flowing.
To a blender, add the following:
1 orange, peeled and seedless
1/2 apple, quartered and cored
1/2 banana, peeled
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
3-5 frozen strawberries
1/2 cup milk
2-3 ice cubes (if desired)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
Pulse and puree until desired consistency; serve and enjoy immediately.
