So I have this issue about breakfast: when I first start a new schedule, I wake up RIDICULOUSLY early, so early that I have time to shower, wash dishes, pack my lunch, eat breakfast, clean, etc. After I settle into that routine, my body kind of goes, HEY! Enough sleeping, time to make you almost late every day. So to leave my house at 8:45, I wake up at 8. That leaves me little time for packing a lunch, let alone eating breakfast.
To ensure that I have a ‘balanced breakfast’, I try to consume something to quell the hungry waters of my stomach. So why not use my handy dandy MagicBullet to blend up a delicious and healthy smoothie in 30 seconds? I lost my lid for my cups though, so I had to transfer my beverage to a mason jar, which has a lid. (Backstory: I’m kind of notorious at my school for drinking out of mason jars. Here are the reasons why I do it:
1. It’s a cheap water bottle. I have tons of pasta sauce jars from this.
2. It’s made out of glass; no sketchy chemicals to seep into my drinks.
3. It’s so easy to clean. It doesn’t smell funky if I leave stuff in too long.
4. I KNOW IT WON’T LEAK. <3
5. I love the environment, so I practice the second “R” in “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”.
- Frozen (or fresh) fruit. This can be berries, peaches, mangoes, bananas, WHATEVER. (I made avocado shakes once, I'll post a recipe for that later though.)
- Some sort of fruit juice (I use OASIS antioxidant smart something. Yum pomegranates)
- Yogurt (I generally use strawberry. Because I lurve it)
- *Optional- protein or green tea antioxidant powders =P
- Take a cup from which you would like to drink your beverage. (I used the MagicBullet cups because they're the perfect serving size for me)
- Fill that cup halfway/three quarters full of frozen fruit. Don't pack it in, you want to loosely fill the cup.
- Use enough juice to fill the cup up to the same level or just under the level of the frozen fruit.
- Fill the rest of the space of the cup with yogurt
- (Transfer to a blendable vessel) Blend until desired consistency. Add yogurt if too thin, juice if too thick.
- Drink it up, friends.
Super healthy, super delicious, and WAAAAY cheaper than Booster Juice
