Recipe: Breakfast Smoothie with Berries, banana and Chocolate

Tina: There is nothing better than to wake up to a beautiful sunny morning, and the best way to start my day is with a smoothie. My mum drinks two big smoothies everyday, one for breakfast and one for dessert, and she has great hair and skin for age 60. I hope that I will stay as healthy and young looking as she has.

My friend Tina B. inspired me to buy the Magic Bullet a few years ago. Despite what it may sound like (!), it’s actually a mini-blender. It is a smart tool that can be used for making several different smoothies (or other foods) at almost the same time, such as when my husband and I don’t want to use the same ingredients. It is very compact which is great for my little storage space, and is very easy to clean. (I hate cleaning big appliances).

Make sure to check your teeth before you leave for work. As attractive as your hair and skin might be after a smoothie, the blueberries between your teeth may be the only attention you get! 🙂

There is nothing better than to wake up to a beautiful sunny morning, and the best way to start my day is with a smoothie. My mum drinks two big smoothies everyday, one for breakfast and one for dessert, and she has great hair and skin for age 60. I hope that I will stay as healthy and young looking as she has.

Ingredients

  • 5-6 5-6 frozen strawberries

  • 8-10 8-10 frozen blackberries

  • ¼ cup ¼ blueberries

  • ½ ½ banana

  • 3-4 tablespoons 3-4 plain organic yogurt

  • 10 10 raw almonds

  • 1 1 small piece (1″ x 1″) dark chocolate

  • 1-2 tablespoons 1-2 Grapenuts or other cereals

Directions

  • Give the frozen berries a little spin in the microwave. Slightly thawing the fruit is better for the blender blades and it keeps the smoothie drinkable rather that edible – Mamma’s advice).
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and blend it in your blender. Drink and enjoy!
