I love breakfast. Typically when you think of breakfast you probably start thinking about bacon, eggs, toast & cereal.
The problem is:
I’m not a huge fan of bacon.
We have a little boy who doesn’t care for eggs.
It’s hard to find bread here that doesn’t have high fructose corn syrup in it… Toast isn’t a very healthy option.
My homemade bread doesn’t toast well.
And don’t even get me started on cereal! Seriously what is that crap?
Trust me you don’t want to know, but you really need to do your research and find out. Even healthy looking cereal can be deceiving. Don’t get me wrong I eat the stuff too on occasion, but you do not want to make these regular staples in your diet.
The food you put in your body has to do with how you look, yes. But also how you act, how long you’ll live and how well you will live. The food we are eating is causing birth defects, fertility problems, cancer, diabetes and so much more. Get educated.

Alright so you came here to learn about this easy smoothie right?
This is a terribly lazy way to make an alright breakfast. We don’t normally buy orange juice but we had some leftover from a breakfast my husband served a couple weeks ago. I also try not to buy yogurt. I like to make my own… Well that’s not entirely true, I don’t like to make my own… It’s just much cheaper & healthier.
I would call this baby steps to healthy eating. Because there’s so much more you can do with this recipe to make it even healthier.
Two Momma bear sized handfuls of frozen strawberries
Two scoops of frozen blueberries, because using your hands for these would make a mess.
One frozen banana
About a cup of yogurt
Enough OJ to make it smooth.
And then you just blend it together. The kids and I each had a glass for breakfast and I froze the rest in little mason jars to have as a treat when the man of the house gets home.
I love mason jars,& I love that man. Do you do anything special for when your guy gets home? Maybe I’ll do a post about that next week. I’ll also do a post about the frozen Gogurt in our freezer, and why we aren’t eating it.
