Fast, Healthy Smoothies are My Favorite

I love working out in the morning. It is my favorite way to start the day. After my workouts, I am always ready for breakfast. I love blending up an easy smoothie and this Berry Banana Smoothie.  I blend up a refreshing smoothie. Smoothies are a great post workout treat or anytime treat really! This smoothie is great for breakfast or for an easy healthy snack. Our boys love this smoothie too!

How I Make My Smoothies

For this smoothie, I use plain Greek yogurt as the base and throw in whatever fruits we have on hand. When fruit is on sale, I buy extra so I can freeze some for smoothies. I like using frozen fruit because it makes the smoothie thicker. You can use fresh fruit, just throw in some ice cubes to thicken it up.

For this smoothie, I used frozen blueberries, banana, and strawberries. I always add a splash of skim or soy milk to help the blender do it’s work. This breakfast treat blends up in no time.  Sometimes, I make a double batch and keep half of it in the freezer. When I am in a rush, I pull the smoothie out of the freezer and let it defrost while I get ready. I grab my smoothie and a straw on my way out the door and enjoy a healthy breakfast without any fuss!

  1. Sounds fabulous. Love the natural protein in the greek yogurt!! Hope you get plenty of time to play this weekend 🙂

  2. We have something very similar almost every morning but add Oj & a little water instead of the milk. I should try the milk for more calcium

  3. Yummmmylicious! This looks amazing, your photography blows me away! Good idea about popping half into the freezer and then just simply letting it defrost while you get ready. Love it.

  4. I love smoothies too. They’re such a great way to eat your fruits.
    I think you need a glass straw. : ) I have some and I’m totally smitten with them.

  8. I’m trying to catch up too Maria! Smoothies are great: a meal in a glass. I add whey powder to mine for the extra protein. Cheers!

  9. I looove smoothies! This one looks so thick and refreshing. I wish my son wasn’t napping right now so I could make one of these and go sit in the sun. 🙂
