Recipe: Breakfast Fruit Smoothie

Most days I have the same thing for breakfast. Oatmeal with dried fruit, nuts, rice milk, and brown sugar. I love it, but it does get a bit boring. A few times a week I change it up with an egg or two.

Today, I felt like something different for breakfast, which on the weekends is usually waffles or pancakes. But last night, I was reading this blog post about making Kiwi Mango Orange Basil Pear Juice.

I don't have a juicer, but I do have a blender and love making fruit smoothies. Usually I make them for lunch or a snack and use the same fruits generally. Bananas and some type of berry.

Yesterday I didn't eat much fruit and wanted to find a way to get a bunch in today. I prefer drinking orange juice to eating oranges, but I had some sitting in the fridge that needed to be used, plus I had just bought some kiwi fruit. After seeing the juice blog post, I decided to use kiwi, orange, and banana. The smoothie was quite good and a nice change. Here's the recipe below.

Breakfast Fruit Smoothie
(4 small servings)

2 kiwis (skin removed)
2 bananas (peeled)
2 oranges (skin removed)
1 T honey
1 cup vanilla rice milk
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt

Place ingredients in a blender and blend until well combined. Pour into glasses. Enjoy!

I really want to try making smoothies for breakfast since I skip it most morning because of time. With this recipe are the yogurt and bannana taste the most powerful? I am not a fan of either which keeps me from trying.

moody gemini - Good to see you around! I don't really notice the yogurt, but I like it, so maybe it just blends into the flavors that I like. Not sure. The yogurt does help with the texture too.

The banana is a strong flavor, so you could eliminate it or use less and increase the other fruits or add different fruits. Papaya is a nice one which will add to the texture. I sometimes buy frozen papaya chunks at Trader Joe's, which makes it really easy to use. They are so good and really healthy!

Eliminate the yogurt if you like and just use rice milk or any other type of milk. Or even something like apple juice. Experiment with the tastes and textures that you prefer. Have fun with it! ; )
