My Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

I am not a big fruit eater. Some years ago I decided I needed to eat better(with some coaxing from my wife) and in order to get more more fruit into my diet I started having a smoothie for breakfast. The following recipe has been developed over the years to what I consider the perfect smoothie. I look forward to this smoothie every morning that I get out of bed despite years of eating the same thing almost every morning. Many people don’t think that a smoothie can keep you feeling full, but this one gets me to lunch most days although I sometimes have a 10-11AM snack. I also use a Magic Bullet┬áto make this so the portion is perfectly measured to fit in one of the regular cups. I also use a small food scale to measure everything out, so everything is measured in grams. So without further a due…

Ingredients in order of addition…
  1. 70-80 gm of frozen┬ábanana – Sliced to fit and freezing is key to a thick frothy smoothie.
  2. 45 gm frozen blueberries
  3. 45 gm frozen raspberries
  4. 50 gm frozen strawberries
  5. 20-30gm of whey protein powder(i prefer vanilla)
  6. 130 gm of Whole Milk(I use raw milk from a grass fed cow in order to avoid hormones and pesticides as well as get the most nutrients)
  7. 17 gm of peanut butter
  8. 100 gm of plain whole yogurt
  9. Blend until all ingredients mixed and a frothy smoothie is produced.
