Start your day with a smoothie!
The temperatures may be dipping very low these days, which is why I believe we all need an extra dose of vitamins to boost up our immune system and bring some colour into our day. I like to start my day with a healthy, nutritious breakfast smoothie. Smoothies are great because I can change the flavour everyday to keep things interesting. You can use fresh or frozen fruit, different kinds of milks and yogurts (cow, goat, soy, almond), a variety of sweeteners if needed like sugar, maple syrup, agave or honey. You can even add ice (not if you use frozen fruit though), juices or ice cream. All of these different flavours will affect the taste and texture of your smoothie so don’t hesitate to experiment to find your favourite.
Basic smoothie recipe:
- 8 oz of your choice of yogurt
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen fruit (you can use any combination of fruit)
- 1 cup your choice of liquid (juice, milk or 50/50)
- Some ice if needed (for texture)
