I admit it, I rarely get the recommended 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day … it certainly isn’t easy – or it wasn’t …. until NOW!
I started making fruit smoothies and wow, I can now say that I’m getting much closer to the daily recommendations :). This is one of my favorites that will get you 2-3 servings of fruit. If you chose to make it with milk, it will meet one of your calcium requirements as well. Better yet, use greek yogurt and add in a serving of protein, score! It never fills me up for more than an hour or two, but it is a great mid-morning snack if you ask me! You may be someone who doesn’t need to eat as often, and if you don’t then this would make a great breakfast.
I usually drink both! You can save half in the freezer for later.
Blend together until a frothy, thick shake forms. The longer you blend, the thicker it will be. Recent research shows that the thicker the shake, the more satisfying it is, leading you to eat less later on. Frozen fruit will make for a thicker smoothie, so feel free to pre-freeze the banana!
