Happy Monday everyone! (Don't worry only 5 days til the weekend!) I am starting off the morning right. Drinking my coffee, snuggling with Sid, and trying to awkwardly balance my laptop on the armrest of the couch while trying to not spill my coffee everywhere. But before I settled in for some blogging and coffee sipping, I made Matt and I these healthy breakfast smoothies to take to work with us. We have been drinking them all last week for breakfast because we ran out of english muffins and between working 6 days a week and having friends over on the weekend I didn't quite have time to whip out a batch. But really, who cares, because these smoothies are the bomb!!!
No, I don't put kale or spinach in my smoothies. I tried putting kale in my nice cream once and it ended horribly. Do not attempt it! I have put spinach in smoothies before, but, eh. These smoothies are still packed with nutrition and they keep you full all morning long! That is because I add oats, wheat germ, and flax seed. So yummy.
You can also get super creative with these. If you have plain almonds, throw in a handful. If you have greek yogurt, throw that in too! Peanut butter in smoothies is always a winner, especially banana smoothies! Any type of frozen fruit will work, I have loads of strawberries right now that I picked over the summer (with the intention to make jam) so I am trying to use all of those up before strawberries are in season this year! Also yummy: cherries, blackberries, mangoes, blueberries, etc!
