Smoothies in the morning are my fave thing these days.  Here are a couple of my current favorite smoothie recipes:

* I don’t measure anything, who needs perfection?
Fruit Smoothie:

  • A handful of frozen mangos (Trader Joe’s frozen section)
  • 2 spoonfuls of greek yogurt (full fat keeps you full longer, also from Trader Joe’s)
  • One scoop soy protein powder (Trader Joe’s)
  • Maple syrup to taste (just enough to sweeten it a bit)
  • Almond milk (you can use regular cow’s milk or cream or whatever you like.)

Put the mangos in the bottom of the blender and add items in the order listed.  Blend on low and continue to blend until the entire mix is thoroughly blended.

Veggie smoothie:

  • 2 handfuls of kale
  • 1 banana (I will freeze the bananas so that I don’t have to add as much ice)
  • 2 heaping spoonfuls of Greek yogurt (Trader Joe’s)
  • One scoop soy protein powder (Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 spoonful flax seed
  • Almond milk
  • Maple syrup to taste

Add them to the blender, blend on low until mixture blends smoothly.
