September Smoothies - A Quick and Easy Breakfast on the Go

September 16, 2017 • Recipes, Breakfast


September brings us all back to the business of school and work. Sometimes it is hard to fit in that all important first meal of the day as we are re-establishing our fall routines. A smoothie is a great way to get a quick breakfast on the go.  

You can use a regular blender but a kitchen aid hand held blender also works great! Adjust the amount of liquid to your desired consistency. Because you can tailor your smoothie to your needs, it is easy to make a gluten free, egg free, dairy free, allergen free breakfast quickly and easily.  It can contain any healthy thing you want to throw into it but the basic smoothie recipe will look like this:

Fruit Smoothies – 2 fruits (frozen works best) 1 protein, 1 liquid

Greens Smoothie – 2 veggies, 1 fruit, 1 protein, 1 liquid

Rainbow Smoothies

* Any good quality protein powder can be used. Remember if you don't like the taste of your protein powder, it probably isn't going to improve the taste of your smoothie. I'll post a recipe for muffins that disguises the taste of most protein powders. (updated 10-06-17)
