Hi there! I want to thank everyone who has been reading my blogs and keeping up with the content I am posting on Tuesday’s and Friday’s. I am happy that my tips and personal experiences are positively impacting your everyday busy, but balanced lifestyles!
So many of us are rushing in the mornings and trying to get out of the house on time. This leads to many of us being inclined to either skip breakfast or just grab a bagel at the local coffee shop. I would not advise doing either of these two things. Skipping breakfast in the morning actually lowers your metabolism and can actually make you hungrier and sleepier throughout the day. Even though a bagel toasted with butter sounds like a good idea, it is pointless carbs that are not filled with any fiber and doesn’t have nay nutritional value.
Today I want to talk about this super easy smoothie recipe that you can make it under five minutes. It is perfect for those mornings when you are in a rush to get to school or work. It is also a great alternative to skipping breakfast or just grabbing something that does not provide any nutritional value. My go-to smoothie in the morning consists of: spinach, pineapples, mangos, strawberries, bananas, low-fat yogurt, a splash of apple juice, and your choice of protein if you want! I like to call this smoothie the “green morning machine”.
Here’s what you what you will need for the smoothie:
- 1 cup of spinach
- ¾ cup frozen or fresh mangos
- ¾ cup frozen or fresh pineapples
- ¾ cup frozen or fresh green apples
- ½ of ripe banana
- 1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt (sub protein power if you would like)
- ¾ apple juice (sub water if you would like)
And wa-lah. You have a green smoothie that is made is under five minuets that tastes amazing! Your smoothie new smoothie recipe is made from healthy ingredients that will give you energy and help you feeling full throughout the rest of the morning.
P.S. You can’t even taste the spinach!!!
