My number one goal for the year is to have breakfast every day...extra points if it's healthy. :) I figured smoothies were something I could manage, and would add more fruits and vegetables to my day. I've been buying fresh fruit as well as frozen and using fresh vegetables.
I just noticed that my piece of ginger root looks like a little lobster. :)
I love the Rubbermaid Brilliance containers for keeping the fruit in the freezer. With the lid as well as the container being clear, I can tell easily what is in each one, and the way the lid is designed they stack easily and don't tumble around every time I open the freezer drawer. (This opinion is not sponsored, I just really like them.) I bought these specifically for this purpose, because I didn't want my fruit in the freezer confused with Carey's work meals.
This one has a banana, a small orange, a few slices of frozen peach, some frozen blueberries, a handful of spinach, and a piece of sliced ginger. I pour some coconut milk and some Just Black Cherry juice (100% juice good for inflammation from arthritis) over the top as well as a scoop of organic egg white protein powder, and blend. If it's too thick, I add some ice cubes and/or a little water and blend again.
So far I have been really good at getting this made and consumed first thing every morning, even on the mornings that I've had to be out of the house by 7 a.m. for work.
