The best breakfast smoothie recipes are the ones that will fill up your nutritional fuel tank and keep you going throughout the morning.
Lately I've been making a green smoothie nearly everyday. I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful it makes me feel. I personally try to keep my ratio vegetables to fruits higher on the veggie side. This ensures I get lots of the good stuff without a sugar spike.
Fruits do contribute nutritionally, but too many of them in a smoothie can rack up the calories and cause a sugar crash later on. If you're attached to sweet smoothies, include 1 or 2 fruits and then you can adjust from there.
So making blended drinks really isn’t rocket science; you basically throw a bunch of tasty ingredients into a blender and the result is one mighty fine tasty concoction that makes you glow.
There is a bit of an art for gauging the right proportions of ingredients in order to get the best consistency and flavor in the end. (And for preventing that ever-frustrating blender scenario where the stuff just sits there, not blending, grrr.)
Here is a simple formula to help you get started, and after a while you’ll be able to create your own breakfast smoothies with ease!
liquid+ creamy + flavorful + veggie or 2 (optional, but not really) + ice (optional) = delicious smoothie
Almost anything works in a smoothie.
This is a perfect way to sneak in extra veggies into your day!
There are so many possibilities so get a little creative! Make your own breakfast smoothie recipes just by seeing what you have in the fridge and following the basic formula. If it’s too thick you can always add a little water or extra juice, and if it’s too runny just add extra fruit or ice!
This really is an awesome way to start your day, or a better alternative to caffeine for an afternoon pick-me-up!
