You’ve heard it said several times that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is so true as it gives your body a wake up call and gets your system working. However even more important than breakfast is what you have for breakfast. For so many years, I have had fruit smoothies for breakfast and I can’t tell you how energizing it is. Fruit smoothies are however not limited to breakfast as they can be enjoyed at any time of the day. A chilled glass of smoothies is always a refreshing drink after a workout routine. The beauty of fruit smoothies is that there is no real recipe for it. Just throw in a combination of fruits of your choice, blend and enjoy. This recipe also has some plain Greek yogurt which helps with digestion.

INGREDIENTS:

(1) Fresh Fruits (You can also make use of frozen fruits)

(2) 3 Tablespoons of  Plain Greek Yogurt

(3) 1/4 Cup of Milk (Full or Reduced Fat)

(4) Honey or Dates for Sweetener (Optional)

Note: You can use any combination of fruits. You can also throw in some vegetables. I love to change things up and use different fruit combinations everyday. Plus, each fruit has a different nutrient combination. Changing things up will help ensure that you take advantage of of the various nutrients contained in the different fruits.
