Summer is right around the corner! And that means alllll the smoothies! Not only are they a healthy alternative to a regular meal, they also save a lot of time!
I would love to go all out in the kitchen for breakfast every day, sometimes that just isn't practical! So on days when time is at a premium, I usually default to smoothies that I can take with me, or walk around with while getting things done.
Another great perk is my son can also enjoy it relatively mess free 🤗 Usually when I make anything, smoothie or otherwise, I just grab what's on hand in the fridge (or freezer) and cross my fingers that it will be good 🙊 This combo came out pretty darn tasty, and it's also low in fat, high in protein and full of nutrients to fuel your morning! ☀️
What you'll need:
1/2 Apple, sliced (Fuji or other sweet variety)
1 kiwi fruit, peeled
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 scoop vanilla ice cream protein powder
1/8 lime (a medium sized wedge, peeled)
1/3-1/2 cup water (depending on how "frozen" you like it) ❄️
Combine all ingredients in your blender, mixing until smooth...pour into a glass, sink a straw in and sip away! This would also work very well for a smoothie bowl, just top with some of your favorite add-ons 🍓🍌🍒
