This is a far better option than eating grains in the morning. The high sugar breakfast cereal that your taste buds desire is better replaced by whole fruit. Using the whole fruit to make smoothies is a FAR better choice than juicing, which eliminates much-needed fiber and other nutrients.
STRAWBERRY MORNING SMOOTHIE
– 4 oz milk (your favorite variety) or water (use less if a thicker shake is desired)
– 2 tbsp vanilla sugar-free, fat-free instant pudding powder (optional)
– fresh strawberries (7-9 medium size)
– 5-7 ice cubes
– 1 packet of Stevia (or another natural sugar-free sweetener)
Add all ingredients and pulse in a blender until smooth. Add a little more milk if necessary. Eat 60-80% of your diet as raw fruits and veggies for maximum health!
