I'm not a breakfast person. I like breakfast foods just not at a normal breakfast time. I could easily go until lunch with just coffee. Of course if I do that then I'm starving in the afternoon and make all kinds of ill advised eating choices...like 3 or 4 chocolate chip cookies. A couple of years ago I started making a smoothie in the morning and that changed things, I can handle a smoothie and it really does help me all day long. But the last couple of weeks I've been lazy about breakfast and I haven't been making my smoothie. Boo. Today I dusted off the blender and whizzed up some breakfast. I feel better already. I wish this smoothie also worked on kids. A couple of them are waking up later and later, they got out of bed 10 minutes before having to leave the house today. How many more days of school?
1/2 C plain yogurt
1/2 C orange juice
1 frozen banana (I slice bananas and freeze them)
1/4 C frozen mango
1 handful of spinach
1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder
a little bit of water if the mixture seems too thick
