Smoothies are simply the best for someone who doesn’t really have breakfast like me. It has the vitamins, the nutrients, the fibers and protein to help get you through the morning until lunch time comes. Even then, you’re able to control how much you’ll be eating at lunch.
As you can see in the image above, I made a grande size (16 oz) volume smoothie using my stainless steel Starbucks tumbler as a reference of measure. Having a blender has kept me from skipping meals that I should have consumed.
What’s in it:
- Banana, 1 small
- Cucumber, 1/2 c
- Ginger, size of a scrabble chip
- Chia seeds, 1 Tbsp
- Blueberries, handful
- Kale, 1 leaf
- Almond milk, 1 1/2 c
- Yogurt, 2 Tbsp
In my other smoothie recipes I’ve mentioned that I don’t use ice which is why this recipe doesn’t call for it either. However, you may add them if you want. There is no harm in adding sweeteners either but I find the banana sweet enough that I no longer needed to sweeten it more.
Easy peasy and all you have to do after preparing all the ingredients is blend them until as smooth as possible. Very delicious and very healthy.
