5 Breakfast Smoothies to Try

(All under 150 calories) 

Smoothies are a great way to get your fruits and veggie servings included in your daily journey and taste amazing.  The fact that I found these tasty smoothies that are all under 150 calories is an added bonus. You can spread these options out throughout the challenge and even repeat your favorites!

1. Cherrylicious

1 cup frozen cherries + 1/4 cup chopped pineapple + 1/2 cup low sugar orange juice or apple juice + 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Coconut Blend + 1/4 cup ice if needed (unless I am using all frozen fruit- I usually add a handful of ice to my smoothies)

 

2. Strawberry Banana
3/4 cup strawberries + 1/2 banana + 3/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Coconut Blend

3. Tropical Green Smoothie
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk + 3/4 cup pineapple (cubed) + 1/2 banana + 1/2 cup spinach + 1/2 cups ice

4. Peaches and Cream
1 cup sliced peaches + 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Coconut Blend

5. Pineapple Coconut
1 cup frozen pineapple + 3/4 cup Unsweetened Silk Coconut Milk

 

 

Smoothie tips:

  1. Use fresh or frozen fruit (or a combo of both) If you use fresh, you will need to add about 1/2 cup of ice.) Ripe bananas work best.
  2. Load the container in the proper order—liquids first, then soft fruits or vegetables, greens, and ice on top.
  3. Depending on sweetness of the fruit, you might need a bit of sweetener, use honey, agave, maple syrup, Stevia, sugar substitute, apple juice, or a little sugar a tiny bit at a time.
  4. All blenders are different, and will process, the ingredient at a different rate so if your Smoothie is too thin: Add a bit more fruit/banana/ice. If it is too thick: add a bit more Silk Almond/Coconut Milk or low sugar juice.
  5. Optional add-ins to bump up the nutritional content: 1/2 avocado, (will add creaminess w/out changing the flavor) Handful of baby spinach, chia or flax seed, protein powder, nut butters, yogurt or even cooked oatmeal.
