The past few weeks I have been participating in a Get Healthy 8 week challenge. I have teamed up with 15 other ladies. We have pledged to get healthy. For more information to start your own group click here.
In starting the challenge I was worried about meeting all the requirements. My number one worry was consuming enough fruits and vegetables. I have terrible allergies to raw fruits and vegetables. This makes meeting the requirements difficult. So today I am sharing one way to get a serving of fruits and veggies in before lunch time.
Good Morning Sunshine Breakfast Smoothie
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup milk
1 8 ounce yogurt ( I like Kroger's carbmaster 9 grams of protien)
1/8 cup whey protein
(I like cytosport 100% whey protien, vanilla flavored from Costco)
1/2 cup fresh spinach
1/2 cup frozen berries
1/2 cup ice cubes
Opt 1 ripe banana , peeled
Blend in a blender until smooth.
Makes 4, 1 cup servings.
Layer your ingredients in order with the ice and berries on top. I have a Blendtec blender that I love! It has a smoothie feature. In 25 seconds my yummy drink is ready to serve. Blend and serve.
I usually drink 2 servings after working out. It give me a fruit and veggie serving plus protein to fuel my morning. My kids love to drink these and ask for them every morning!
Good Morning Sunshine!
