“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”.
We have all heard this one, yet sometimes I found myself grabbing processed packaged berry tarts, dry sugary cereals, or even not eating anything at all! None of these breakfast solutions are satisfying and can lead into even worse feelings as the day goes on.
Recently I have been trying to start my morning right with whole natural foods that will keep me feeling fuller longer and will give me energy to last the whole day. When I have some extra time in the morning I love enjoying some hardboiled or fried eggs, Ezekiel Toast with fresh butter, and some fruit.
Although this is a dream breakfast, I usually don’t have time for all of this and need something quick that packs a punch. This is where I turn to smoothies! They are always cool and refreshing, which is a great wake up in the morning. I always have frozen fruit on hand, so it is also convenient and easy to make.
Here is one I make often because it only has 3 ingredients and tastes great!
- 1/2 cup Frozen berries ( I use a frozen berry mix!)
- 1/2 cup Frozen chopped Kale
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup of almond or coconut milk (I use a blend like this!)
- Optional: Ice for a more icey like smoothie. I don’t usually add it since my berries and kale are both frozen.
1) Put all of your ingredients in a blender and whirl away to desired consistency!
I love this because it is so simple! The berries are full of antioxidants and the kale is one of the most nutrient dense foods in the world. Your breakfast couldn’t get or taste much better!
*As usual my measurements are approximate. You can always add more or less of these ingredients to suit your taste!
**Psst! Today I linked some awesome milk! I love this brand and really love their products and that is my true honest opinion. This company doesn’t know me or compensate me, I just genuinely love this stuff and want you to know about it too!
