The Perfect Summer Berry-Banana Smoothie Recipe
Try Our Refreshing & Delicious Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe
Let’s get real: mornings are usually a pretty hectic time.
You’ve got to get yourself ready for the day (whether you’re going to the office… going to school… staying home… or telecommuting…) And honestly, just getting myself ready is enough work and time.
And if you have kids at home, you have to get all of them ready, too!
(Somehow I also find myself helping my partner get ready and out the door too… even though he’s obviously a full-grown adult. How is it that I’m SO much better at finding things in our house than he is?!)SPECIAL: These 3 Delicious Smoothie Recipes Are Specially Designed To Burn Off More Fat… So You Lose More Weight
So by the time I’m all ready for the day, I really don’t have much time for breakfast. I certainly don’t have time for that full breakfast spread they show most movie families starting every day with!
And when that happens… and I’m on a real time crunch… I end up skipping breakfast more often than I’d like to admit.
Now, if you’re one of those people who just isn’t very hungry in the morning, that probably isn’t much of a problem for you.
But for me… it sets me up for a very difficult day. I end up STARVING by 10 am or so… and then I go rummaging through my desk to find any snacks I can devour to stave off the hunger until lunchtime.
And then at lunchtime, I end up eating WAY more than I should… because I’m so overly hungry from skipping breakfast.BRAND-NEW: The Absolute BEST Supplements For Weight Loss… As Proven By Science & Recommended by Doctors
Of course, I’m not sure which is worse: to skip breakfast and then load up on highly processed snacks & an oversized lunch… or to surrender to a drive-thru breakfast from a fast food restaurant.
Neither is really a very good choice for my health or my waistline.
That’s where this smoothie recipe really saves me!
It’s SO fast—like I think I can make it in 2 minutes flat, including gathering all of the ingredients!
I can easily drink it while I finish getting ready for the day (I personally like to finish it off while I’m putting on makeup…), or I can quickly pour it into a to-go cup and take it with me, wherever I need to go!
And this smoothie is WAY healthier for me than eating packets of cookies & pretzels hidden in my desk drawers… or a fast food breakfast sandwich.
Not to mention that it’s totally delicious! The ingredients blend together perfectly for a refreshing start to my day that isn’t overly sweet.
Plus, it actually keeps me full for quite a while… so I’m safe from the temptation of those desk snacks.TRENDING: Women Who Eat These 3 Cheeses Are Losing Pounds of Stubborn Belly Fat (Research Proven)
One more perk of this smoothie recipe? You can totally customize it with your favorite fruits & flavors (or whatever it is that you happen to have in your kitchen).
You don’t like blueberries? Leave them out!
You have a bag of frozen mango in the freezer that needs to be used up soon? Toss it in!
It’s really the perfect go-to for a fast, healthy, and delicious breakfast.
(Not to mention that you can actually enjoy it at ANY time of the day.)
So, without further ado… here’s how to make it for yourself:
FTH’s Strawberry Banana Smoothie
Serves 1 (with sometimes a little left over)
- About 1 cup of yogurt (preferably Greek yogurt)
- 5 strawberries
- 1 banana
- A handful of blueberries
- 1 scoop of protein powder
- A few ice cubes (the more ice cubes, the thicker the smoothie is)
1) Mix all of the ingredients together in a blender. I usually put the ice at the bottom so that it gets blended a little faster.
2) Pour this bad boy into a glass or to-go cup, and you are ready to start your morning!
(Also, you may find that you’ve got some extra – give it to your kids… or save it and re-blend it a few minutes later.)
