Red, White, & Blue Fruit Smoothie

I definitely had the Monday blues this morning.  After a crazy busy weekend, it was hard to get out of bed this morning, especially on a rainy day.  On days like this, I need a little more than coffee.  A protein enriched fruit smoothie is the answer to take on a busy Monday filled with conference calls and meetings.  This is what you will need:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries
  • 1 (8oz) container of Blueberry Greek Yogurt
  • 5 ice cubes
  • Direction: Chop banana in small pieces as well as strawberries.  Mix yogurt, fresh fruit, and ice cubes in a blender. Add ice cubes as needed for desired consistency. This makes an amazing breakfast that will keep you full and give you energy throughout the entire morning.  This is the new breakfast for champs!  I prefer using Greek yogurt over regular yogurt because it has lower sugar and higher protein content, which makes you feel fuller.  It is also a little thicker so it makes the smoothies more satisfying and creamy.  Enjoy!
