There is a lot to like about a smoothie diet. Not only do the smoothies taste great and are very satisfying but the whole smoothie diet concept is so much healthier than so many of the trendy fad diets. This particular diet breakfast smoothie is healthy, satisfying, and very nutritious.
To prove it, here is a very tasty, and very healthy, breakfast smoothie recipe to add to your smoothie diet collection. This smoothie diet recipe blends Bananas, Strawberries, Orange juice and yogurt to start your day with a nutrient blast and keep you going until lunch.
To add even more nutritional value to a diet breakfast, throw a tablespoon of Chia seedinto the mix. Chia won’t change the results but will add quite a bit more vitamins, minerals, and important omega-3 fatty acids.
