So it happened… I got sick of having oatmeal for breakfast. Oh no! Oatmeal has been my go-to breakfast for as long as I can remember, and I knew the day would come when I just couldn’t pack one more oat into my stomach. To change it up a little bit, I have been on a morning smoothie kick. I think that smoothies can be a great way to get in a serving of fruits and vegetables (especially if you aren’t a veggie lover) and can be so versatile, different, and colorful. This morning I had a delicious green smoothie. Drinking something green may seem a little strange or unappealing to some people, but if you can stand it, I suggest you try this one! It is sweet, refreshing, and was the perfect start to my morning!
- 1-2 cups fresh spinach (I just used a big handful)
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 cup frozen peaches
- 1 medium banana
- 1 cup cold water
- 1/2 cup Silk Vanilla Light Soy Milk
- 1 tsp ground flaxseed
Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth. It helps to add a little bit of your liquid first so that it is near the blade. Your fruit will blend easier this way. I was able to fill 1 large mason jar plus 1/2 of a regular sized mason jar with this recipe. I saved the smaller jar for a snack later in the day. Enjoy!
