January 18: An easy, good for you smoothie

I make these at least 3 times a week. An easy, calorie smart breakfast.

Yogurt Smoothie:

1 1/2 cups nonfat plain yogurt (buy the big tubs of this for cheaper)

1 handfull of frozen mixed berries (I buy mine at Costco to save $)
1 frozen banana (When the bananas start turning, put them in the freezer, no peel, in a ziplock)

Throw in a blender and blend. It's filling and yummy!

Conversation starter: Describe a time you won a race.

sounds yummy, but do you want to make it even better? Add 2 T. of protein powder. It will add a few calories, but last you for hours.

Or, add a couple of teaspoons of oat or wheat bran. Adds a little crunch with a bit of nutty flavor. And it keeps your digestive system running like clockwork.

Blessings Mary,

Greek yogurt! It has higher protein content and keeps you full longer :) This recipe site is the GREATEST! Thank you Mary!!
