Good Morning! Happy Saturday everyone 🙂 I hope you are all still eating clean as always. I have a new recipe for you guys if you are in that awful breakfast rut I know we all get in. I've been there. Breakfast has got to be the hardest meal to figure out what to eat. For me, I just have to have something sweet or carby for breakfast, I like eggs but personally I am not the biggest fan of them. That's why smoothies are my go to breakfast! There are so many new and delicious combinations of fruit, it's hard to get tired of them. Only problem is..it's cold outside and I am drinking an ice cold smoothie…not the best combo. But to me it's worth it. I will just huddle up near my fire place with a ton of blankets covering me. That's how I spend my every morning haha.
Back to the smoothie, the mango and strawberries together make this so sweet tangy and delicious. It almost reminds be of a creamy fruit dessert. Try it out and let me know what you think!
-5-6 small ice cubes
-5-6 large sliced and frozen strawberries
-1/3-1/2 cup frozen mango slices
-1/2 tbsp flax seed (optional, helps to thicken shake and add healthy fats!)
-1 tbsp plain 0% greek yogurt
-3/4-1 scoop natural vanilla protein powder (I use the PVL brand)
-1/2-1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk depending on the consistency you want your shake to be (add slowly until you like it)
-Optional: Honey for added sweetness(I didn't add any since I found it to be already sweet enough with the fruit and protein powder).
Directions: Place ingredients in the blender in the order listed to avoid protein powder sticking to the bottom of the blender. Blend on high until smooth, pour in a large cup and garnish with a fresh strawberry..enjoy!
