Dr. Dave’s Healthy Breakfast Smoothie

A healthy breakfast smoothie needs protein & vegetables but it should also taste delicious, right? Many delicious smoothies tend to be all fruit and therefore high in sugar and not very healthy. Many healthy recipes are all veggies and powdered superfoods and not yummy at all. So how can we achieve smoothie harmony?
It’s much simpler than you think. Use yogurt or nuts as protein depending on if you have to watch your calories, need more or less fat in your diet, or are sensitive to either nuts or dairy. Use at least 1 -2 vegetable to make it healthy and 1-3 fruits to make it yummy.

Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt or cashews or other skinless nuts
  • 1/2 medium Banana frozen
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup raw fruit preferably frozen
  • 1/2 cup raw vegetable preferably frozen (except baby spinach)

Instructions

  • Add either Greek Yogurt or nuts to blender, half-frozen banana, and water, then add 1-3 fruits and 1-2 vegetable to make each smoothie and blend until smooth.

Notes

NOTES:
Almond Milk is a nice low-fat alternative to the greek yogurt base.
Protein and Fiber Additions. Greek yogurt or your favorite protein powder are easy ways to make breakfast protein smoothies. A tablespoon of oatmeal adds fiber.
Fruit. Strawberries and blueberries are my go-to’s. Bananas make smoothies naturally sweet. Mango and pineapple can hide the taste of greens. Unexpected fruits like apples or watermelon can be scrumptious too.
Vegetables. Spinach, kale, avocado, carrots, and even beets can all be added to smoothies.
Flavor Additions. Vanilla, cinnamon, and dates are all excellent ways to give your smoothie more flavor.
Nutritional Info is based off a smoothie with:Greek Yogurt, Blueberries & Baby Spinach
