5-A-Day the Sneaky Way Breakfast Smoothie

This is the perfect on-the-go food for busy people trying to eat healthy- you won't even taste the spinach and you can sub ingredients for what you have frozen or fresh at home- it's delicious with almost all substitutions!

Servings: Two LARGE glasses full of smoothie:

4-6 whole frozen strawberries
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 banana
1 large handful of spinach (about 1-2 cups)
1 TBS protein powder (I use soy, boys many want to use whey)
1 cup vanilla soy milk
1 individual portion container yogurt (use your favorite flavor, I use strawberry to keep the flavor)
1/2 cup water

*I also add a TBS of ground flax seed and oat bran, but they are optional, as would any other health supplement you wish to add to yours
* If you aren't a soy milk fan use 1 cup regular milk with a few drops of vanilla and a tsp of sugar or honey to get a similar flavor

These keep well so you can make one for two days and trick yourself into eating spinach twice!

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high for about 2 minutes.

  1. My favorite lately is frozen cherries, milk, chocolate protein powder, and almonds. The cherries are solid enough that the consistency is still good.
    And I just started adding kale a couple weeks ago off of someone's suggestion. It's totally crazy that it's not totally terrible!!
