Some mornings I get into the rut of making my kids the same old breakfast recipes. While I’m comforted by the fact that they love what I make them (Chloe could eat egg and cheese omelettes until she is blue in the face and Kenya, as you may know from last week’s post, is obsessed as of late with museli, it can make me feel like I’m a lazy mom. The biggest issue for me is time. Between me not having a lot of it in the morning and the amount of it it takes my little ones to eat (Kenya can nurse a bowl of cereal for what seems like an eternity), I have to make things that are reasonably simple, but still loaded with as much nutrition as possible.

Recently, I added this breakfast recipe to my rotation and it has quickly become one of our new favorites. I call it Smoothie Your Way because the recipe all depends on what you’ve got sitting in your fridge or freezer or the things your kids enjoy the most. I’ve listed the basic formula for one serving, but don’t let it stop from you improvising to make it just the way your family likes it best. And since you can always change up the ingredients, you never again have to worry about getting into a breakfast idea rut. Each day can truly be your way!

  2. By happy accident I saw this recipe this morning while mourning the fact that I am pretty much out of food and desperately need to go shopping. I don’t make smoothies often (although I love them!) because I have a craptastic blender of the highest caliber and it never wants to actually BLEND anything unless there’s a lot of liquid in there. But since I had very few options I decided to give it a go, figuring between the liquidy Bulgarian yogurt I use and the milk, there should be enough liquid for it to blend.

    So glad I did! It tasted delicious. I used my favorite Bulgarian yogurt, vanilla almond milk, frozen banana, boysenberries, blackberries, and blueberries, a teaspoon of maca powder, and my last tablespoon of raw Canadian honey. It took a little effort on my blender’s part but it came out smooth and creamy and just the right balance of sweet and tart. A nice breakfast smoothie for a morning that wasn’t looking to promising!

  3. I have always enjoyed fruit smoothies, but never considered adding greens and other veggies to up the ante. I have to admit that at first, it really didn’t sound too appealing. However, from the very first day that I added some fresh baby spinach to my banana, soy milk, and frozen strawberries, I was utterly hooked! It tasted wonderful and I noticed the positive side effects immediately. They helped to reduce cravings for sweets and aided in my digestion and elimination. (Sorry to have to bring up that topic so quickly, but without healthy elimination of wastes, we are bound-literally speaking-to be unhealthy and unhappy).
