No time for breakfast? Make a smoothie…quick & easy!

Breakfast Smoothie with Vegetables too!

We all know breakfast is the most important meal because it gets you ready for your day ahead.  Too busy for breakfast?   Why not start with a quick, healthy & easy smoothie that has fruit & veggies in it… hardly tasting the veggies makes it an easy way to get those extra hidden servings!

  • Preparation Time: 5 minutes
  • Serves: 2


  • 1/2 cup plain or Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1 banana, cut up and frozen in chunks
  • 1 cup frozen berries (I like strawberry/blueberry mix)
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1 small carrot, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup milk (whatever you prefer, rice, soy, cow)
  • 1/4 cup orange or breakfast juice


  1. If you have a lousy blender, it may help to food process this before you add liquid and blend, otherwise add ingredients to blender and blend low for 2 minutes stirring occasionally to help it along. Then move to higher speeds until the mixture is smooth, adding more liquid if needed.


  • * Keep the frozen to non-frozen ratio equal and you wont need to add ice.
  • * Freeze yoghurt to assure you have a cold mixture.
  • * Try adding ground flaxseed and less oatmeal as flax is a wonderful addition.
  • * Add or subtract any items, (mangoes are wonderful)
  • * I find this to be a good blend for me and my son. Can feed 2-3 people depending on cup size.
  • * Freeze any fruit going off to add to smoothies, its a great way to save from waste!,7007
