Last year after the holidays, when all was calm and ritual again, my husband suggested we drink our breakfast. NO NO not actual alcoholic drinks but juices/smoothies….drinks of that nature!
I have ALWAYS, for as long as I could remember, eaten bread (or some sort of) for breakfast. I am french after all therefore toast with cheese or pate is part of my DNA. That being said, I knew my fruit intake was minimal at best. I love vegetables, I love eating well, I love working out…blah blah blah. BUT I don’t really care to eat fruits.
So, in order to prove a point….which one I don’t remember. I decided I could give up my usual breakfast fare for a delicious smoothie. Believe me when I tell you that it wasn’t easy. I love bread. But I did it. One year ago, I started making smoothies for breakfast. I guess the old sayin’ that if you do something long or often enough it becomes a habit. This time, it’s a good and healthy habit. I love my smoothies!
SO for this first Fantastic Friday of 2014 I wanted to share with you my favorite smoothie.
1/2 cup pineapple (frozen or fresh)
1/2 cup fresh spinach
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup almond or coconut milk (not sweetened)
1 tablespoon peanut butter (preferably organic)
about 1/2 cup water (you could use coconut water)
Put in your blender and press start! 🙂
Note: You could add some green powder, I always forget but Mr. Man loves it. Also the amount of water is up to you. You may prefer a thicker smoothie, your pineapple might be extra juicy….who knows. It’s not brain surgery!
Wishing you all a Healthy 2014 and a fantastic Friday!
Peace and Love
