I’m not a big breakfast eater.
Actually, that’s kind of an understatement. I really don’t like to eat in the morning, and although they say it’s “the most important meal of the day” – most solid breakfast food makes me feel sluggish and sleepy.
Because of this, I blend up a smoothie instead. Now, the drink has to have some “staying power” so I’m not hungry an hour later, and I like to use fresh, healthy ingredients.
Today I’m going to share my go-to smoothie recipe with you–in case you are like me. It also makes a good between meal snack if you need something with a little substance. Plus, it’s super easy!
All you need is a blender and the following ingredients:
- 1/2 avocado (medium size)
- 2 cups Almond Breeze Hint of Honey (almond milk)
- 1/4 cup FAGE Total 2% Greek yogurt
- A handful of fresh spinach
- 1 teaspoon honey
- Freshly grated ginger (to taste)
Simply combine all the ingredients and blend! The avocado makes this a very creamy drink, which is nice. If you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, you can skip the honey.
