A lot of us don’t east breakfast because it is just too much of a chore to cook in the mornings. So we either go without eating which is bad, or we end up with a pastry or “breakfast sandwich” which can be even worse. What’s needed are quick breakfast recipes that are both healthy and easy to make.
Fruit smoothies offer an easy and healthy answer. Just one example is this smoothie recipe that combines Orange juice and peaches with Greek yogurt for a nutritious and tasty start the day drink. After all, how hard is it to turn on a blender for a few seconds?
Its also easy to turn this smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your favorite blender mix:
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 ½ cups of peach slices
- 1 banana, peeled and sliced
- 1 cup Greek vanilla yogurt
- 1 tbsp. Chia seed
