52 Weeks of Fresh Breakfast Ideas – Week 4 Fresh Smoothie

This entry is part 4 of 32 in the series 52 Fresh Breakfast Ideas

52-Weeks-Fresh-BreakfastI’m taking the bull by the horns so to speak. I haven’t been getting along with breakfast for some time and I aim to rework that this year. Join me in my quest to find 52 Fresh Breakfast Ideas that don’t leave me feeling heavy or my family still hungry. We may revisit dishes you already know or find some new favorites but my goal for 2014 is a new appreciation for breakfast.

The last few days I’ve again gotten disenchanted with cooked breakfasts. It happens often for me. Call it hormonal (sorry).

As such I’m glad I can fall back on the Fruit and Yogurt Smoothie to nourish my mornings when this happens.

I love smoothies for their simplicity and quick nourishment. I rediscovered smoothies when Leslie (ofย Walk Away The Pounds fame) reintroduced them on one of her walking tapes as an option for a quick and easy breakfast. She made one using a hand blender (Which then prompted me to purchase aCuisinart Immersion Hand Blender and although that is easy I usually have to make some for the rest of the family so I use a regular blender with a smoothie button (which is totally unnecessary as the regular works better).

In the beginning I had a formula for my smoothies but now I just throw in what I like and keep a few tried and trues such as berries and yogurt.

The Fruit Smoothie in my Collage contains the following.

  • Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 half a nice ripe (not brown and mushy) banana
  • A handful of frozen berries
  • A plash of Green Goodness juice (I always have a bottle of this in the fridge just because I think it tastes good and the green makes me think I’m doing something good)
  • A few chia seeds



Got some breakfast ideas? I have 47 weeks to go so leave me a tip in the comments.

  1. I love this series. Breakfast is important and yet so hard to deal with some mornings. Mine will eat about anything, but they get tired of things quickly. Their favorite breakfast is a dutch baby or german pancake. I love that it’s easy: 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk, 6 eggs, spices of choice. It’s easy for me to toss together when my eyes are still bleary from lack of coffee. But they do get tired of it, too.

    I’d love to find a way to add more protein to oatmeal. Without protein, mine seem to want to snack.

    About how long does the Green Goodness last in the fridge?

    1. Thank you Jenn ๐Ÿ™‚
      I don’t know why breakfast is so hard but I so agree. I also agree about oatmeal. I usually couple mine with a boiled egg or I all add some chopped pecans (yummm,the best) in there. If I eat it plain I’m hungry shortly after.
