Today's green smoothie was my breakfast and I wanted it to stick with me for a while. I'm sipping it now, so we'll see how it goes. This recipe is adapted from The Yummy Life.
Green Berry Blast Breakfast Smoothie
1 cup raspberries
1/2 cup strawberries
1 1/2 c. chopped beet greens (thus the red colored "green" smoothie)
1/4 cup uncooked old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 vanilla whole milk yogurt
2 T. ground flax seeds
1 1/2 c. water
1 medjool date
This is a fiber and nutrient packed smoothie with more than 10 g. fiber, over 100% DV for Vitamin C and K, 50% of Vitamin A and lots of calcium. It's a little short on protein, but with my morning latte (hey, I'm in the Northwest so I'm required by law to have fancy coffee drinks) I get more protein.
