Breakfast on the Run - Smoothies Can Start Your Morning Off Right

by Rosanne Rust

Breakfast is an important meal, but often busy mornings don't allow time for it. Instead of pouring coffee into your travel mug, try these smoothie recipes and start your day off right!

If your house is like mine, it’s a bit hectic in the morning. Working moms may be more concerned with getting breakfast into their kids than they are getting something nutritious for themselves.

You may know that breakfast literally means “break the fast”. After a night’s sleep (or fast) our bodies need to be fueled to face the busy day. Eating or drinking something nutritious is important, but it doesn’t have to be a full meal. If you have time for a bowl of high fiber cereal with sliced fruit and low fat milk, great, but if not, you do want to at least drink something nutritious.

Whether you work from home or work out of the home, these quick breakfast drinks can get you out the door on time, or into your home office chair with an alert brain. Get the blender out onto the counter and instead of pouring coffee into your travel mug, try one of these yummy recipes:

Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie
2 c Yogurt, plain (or use 1 cup plain and 1 cup blueberry yogurt and omit berries)
1/2 c Orange juice freshly squeezed
1 c Blueberries, fresh; rinsed
1 Banana; very ripe

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend on medium speed until smooth and frothy. Pour into glasses and serve.

Orange Smoothie
6 oz Orange juice concentrate, frozen
1 c low fat or non fat Milk
1 c Water
2 TB Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla
10 Ice cubes

Place all ingredients in a blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

Peanut Butter Banana Milk Shake
1 1/4 c Milk
1/2 c Quaker Oats, uncooked (quick or old-fashioned)
1 Ripe banana, cut into chunks
2 TB Peanut butter
1 tsp Honey
1/4 tsp Vanilla
3 Ice cubes

Combine milk, oats, banana, peanut butter, honey and vanilla in blender container. Cover; blend 1 minute on medium speed or until smooth and creamy. Add ice cubes; cover. Blend 1 minute on high speed or until frothy.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive
a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a
youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has
83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I've had trouble clearing my thoughts
in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to
begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your
point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
on just posting videos to your weblog when you
could be giving us something informative to read?

very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for beginners.
Could you please prolong them a bit from next time?
Thanks for the post.
