I start every morning with a yummy fresh fruit smoothie. I’ve been taking some photos lately so I can share the recipes here. First up is the smoothie I had just this morning for breakfast. It’s a blend of mixed berries, with pineapple, peaches, and my favorite smoothie staple, banana.
Here’s the recipe:
Tropical Banana Smoothie
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh pineapple
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries
- 1 large peach, or 2 smaller peaches
- 1/2 to 1 cup water
- 1 teaspoon of honey or agave (optional)
- about a handful of ice (more or less to get your desired consistency)
Throw everything in the blender and hit the button. Blend until everything is creamy smooth. Pour and drink, it’s that easy!
This recipe will make enough smoothie to fill two large glasses, so you can share a glass or keep them both for yourself.
I used to make excuses that I didn’t have time for a healthy breakfast, but smoothies take less than 10 minutes to make from start to finish. I rinse the blender cup out right away, and it’s ready to go again the next morning.
I used to sweeten my smoothies with a little agave or honey, but now I usually don’t add any sweetener at all. It’s up to you.
