How to make a Great Breakfast Smoothie

While breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day, some days you don’t have the time, and like I said cereal just isn’t cutting it. So, what do you do? Do you opt for something from a fast food place? Do you get something when you pick up your coffee? Or even worst, you pop something in the microwave or even the toaster?

None of those options are anything close to healthy, so then you start to feel a little guilty cause you have messed up. But you promise yourself that you’re going to do better the rest of the day. Even though you are off to a bad start, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make it better. Or what if you never got off to a bad start to being with? What if there was something that what quick and easy and healthy? But could it really be? Yes, there is such a thing. Enter the smoothie.

Now, I’m not talking about that stuff that they sell at the store that is loaded with sugar. If you are buying that, you might as well have gotten a candy bar and burger. Just throw caution to the wind. I believe those smoothie shops mean well, but the reality is they are furthest thing from healthy. So, how do we still satisfy our hunger, not go overboard with the sugar, and still be healthy? I got you. Let’s make a smoothie.

Let’s get started:

Milk or yogurt

Rolled oats (not instant)

Banana

Peanut Butter

Protein Powder (optional)

Blender

Here’s what you do:

Plug your blender in. Add the milk, oats, banana, and peanut butter to the blender. If you are going to use protein powder, add that as well. Turn the blender on high and let it rip. Once everything is fully incorporated turn off the blender and pour in a cup.

There you have it, a quick and easy breakfast smoothie. It has some sweetness from the banana and its filling because of the peanut butter and oats. The best part is it didn’t take more than 5 minutes to make.

What other things will you add to your breakfast smoothie? How did it turn out? What other ideas of breakfast smoothies did you come up with? Let me know in the comments.
