After the holidays everybody wants to get back in the healthy wagon, so we are giving you some ideas for a quick and on-the-go breakfast for those busy weekdays. Smoothies are perfect to pack up nutrients and vitamins, you can take it on the go and not miss the most important meal of the day. I will be sharing some of my favorite recipes for breakfast smoothies with you, starting with this Blueberry Smoothie.
A few days ago I got my hands on frozen blueberries, so naturally the first recipe is a Blueberry Smoothie. I adapted a recipe from Cat Cora, but added a bit of oatmeal to it. If you’re thinking that you’ll stay hungry , you’re not! This will keep you satisfied until lunch. Just make sure you keep the good work by having a healthy and balanced lunch and dinner.
I am already thinking of mixing some fruit and greens to have a different twist on my smoothies. What fruits or greens would you like me to try? I am open to suggestions!
