In this edition of ridiculously easy and extremely healthy breakfasts, I am featuring the Blackberry Banana Breakfast Smoothie. Since it has only a few ingredients and can be whipped up in minutes, it’s a breakfast that is very much “work-friendly.” Before we go any further: do you own a Magic Bullet Blender System? If you do not already own one of these bad boys, you should consider buying one. You can find them at Bed Bath and Beyond, and for the machine itself as well as several cups and lids, along with a couple of blades, it will set you back no further than $49.99. The main blender is very small, so there is virtually no issue with counter space. Even better: find a co-worker who is interested in whipping up healthy shakes for breakfast, and split the cost of the machine. (To order on-line, click here.) You can each take a few cups home, and leave the blender itself at work. This way, all you need to do in the mornings is get your ingredients ready in your cup before you leave the house, and simply blend when you get to the office. (I used a regular-sized blender here, as you can see in the photos, since I made three servings; for a single serving, the Magic Bullet is ideal.) It’s simple, yummy, and healthy, and during the busy work week, who can beat that? Without further ado, here is the recipe:
Banana Blackberry Breakfast Smoothie
1/2 cup fresh blackberries
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp flax seeds
1/2 cup ice
Put all ingredients into blender, mix together.
Good to the last drop!
