Food Something Sweet

Obsessed with Smoothies!

I don’t know if anyone else loves smoothies as much as I do, but I have to say I have a serious addiction for them! They are so easy to make and they are the perfect breakfast on the go for a working gal like me. And the best part is that there are thousands and thousands of recipes to make so sky is pretty much the limit when it comes to making a smoothie. Also, they are low on carbs (who doesn’t love that?) and fill you up until lunchtime so you don’t get the munchies.
If you want a smoothie that fills you up pretty good, add bananas. They are high on protein so they will fill you up pretty good so you don’t get hungry until it’s time for lunch. Another trick is if your recipe doesn’t require bananas, add one tablespoon of Quick Oats. This will definitely keep you full for a good 4-5 hours until your next meal. I usually make my smoothies in the morning before I leave for work, so around 7:00 ish and then drink it around 8:00 when I get to work. This keeps me pretty full until I go for lunch around 12:00-12:30. It’s great for my hubby too since he’s on the road pretty much all day so it’s easy for him to drink and doesn’t have to worry about getting hungry while on the road.
There are dozens and dozens of recipes that I’ve tried but I do have my favorites that I always go back to. Here are my top three:

Peanut Butter Raspberry Smoothie (My personal favorite)

  • One Banana
  • Raspberries (as much as you want, I usually go anywhere between 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup)
  • 1 Cup Soy Milk (or any other milk)
  • A handful of ice
  • 3 tbsp of Peanut Butter (original recipe says almond butter, but I prefer peanut butter)
  • 2 tbsp of Honey
Blend everything and enjoy!

Avocado & Kale Smoothie (Hubby’s favorite)

  • One banana
  • A handful of Kale leaves (or spinach)
  • One Avocado
  • 1 Cup Almond Milk (or any other milk)
  • A handful of ice
  • 2 tbsp of Honey

There are two ways of doing this smoothie. You can blend all the ingredients and enjoy it as a regular smoothie. Or you can turn it into a smoothie bowl by putting the blend in a glass and adding a raspberry, kiwi, chia seeds and a drizzle of honey on top. I’ve done it both ways and turns out great either way!

 

Raspberry Almond Chia Smoothie

  • 2/3 Cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt (or plain Greek Yogurt)
  • 2/3 Cup Almond Milk (or any other milk)
  • 2/3 Cup frozen (or fresh) Raspberry
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
Blend everything and enjoy!
