A few weeks ago I shared my OMG Oatmeal recipe, a creamy, apples-and-cinnamon treat that takes only 5 minutes of prep time. Today I've got another 5-minute breakfast wonder that's so easy my 9-year-old daughter can make it.
Bri's Bomb Breakfast Smoothie
We adapted our oldie smoothie recipe to cut some calories and sugar. This version uses alternatives for sugar, milk, and ice cream, which was the way we used to make it. The results are still super! And Greek yogurt, while a little heavier on the calories, gives extra creaminess to the texture and boosts the protein as well.
1 container light yogurt, your favorite flavor or use plain.
6 decent-sized frozen strawberries
3 Tbsp orange juice
1/4-1/2 cup almond, coconut, or soy milk (vanilla or regular)
A squirt of agave syrup or organic raw honey to taste
Combine yogurt, berries, and juice in blender. Starting with 1/4 cup milk, whir ingredients to break down strawberries. Add sweetener to taste and blend until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick, add more milk and blend until you arrive at the consistency you want. If you find it too thin, toss in an ice cube or two and blend.
This makes 1 smoothie, perfect for your breakfast on the run.
