Fruit Smoothie

With some foresight, this is an easy and delicious breakfast… assuming you enjoy fruit.

Congratulations to me, I made it through two months of eating (mostly) slow-carb friendly foods… and I am moving on and (hopefully) not going back.

While it was kind of a pain in the ass at times, I would say it was a relative success. I went from 192.2 lbs -> 172.2 lbs over two months, and since I did not fully stick to the diet, I am not going to complain (although I was hoping for another 5 pounds, but I’m sure that will come in time).

To celebrate my minor accomplishments, I’m treating myself to this delicious smoothie.

The worst part about this is that you have to be proactive. Get it ready at night before bed so it’s ready to go in the morning… I’m awful at remembering to do things at night.

Throw all of your frozen fruits in the blender, add some milk, add your juice, cover it up, and throw it in the fridge for 8 hours.

I’m a fan of anything this easy… it also goes really well with the chocolate flavored protein powder I’ve been trying to ingest daily (now that I shaved off some fat, it’s time to grow some muscles on top of my relatively muscle-free torso).

I’ll probably be trying out different fruit/juice combos at random… anyone have any favorites?!

    Not sure if you all have Krogers wherever you are, but they have a Carbmaster yogurt that is pretty stellar. From peach to carrot cake flavors they only have 60 calories and 4 carbs. I like to mix the Vanilla Carbmaster Yogurt with some Silk Almond Milk and blueberries. Or, the strawberry/banana yogurt with…you guessed it, strawberries and bananas.

    I’ve also found that if you take a small box of sugar free jello and add a cup of boiling water, t hen a 6 oz container of yogurt, you can get some creamy, gnarly popsicles (favorite right now is peach jello with blackberry yogurt).

      Sounds great! Time to go hunting for Carbmaster yogurt.

    This looks great, Chris! I love smoothies for breakfast. I buy bananas and let them become too ripe, and then toss them in the freezer in their skins. I find that it helps to make the smoothie extra creamy (and I love banana). In the morning (never thought to make it ahead – brilliant idea) and just take the banana out, as it thaws enough to peel within a few minutes) – and use whatever frozen fruit I have (you use a nice combination). I also throw in a tablespoon of ground flax seed.
