Feel Good Smoothie

At the end of the week my sister and I are running a half marathon. It's my second time doing one and her first so we're really excited! This week is all about doing healthy things for our bodies so we can avoid injury and feel our best on race day. With that in mind I thought I'd share my breakfast- it's fast, yummy, & nutritious. This also makes a good pre or post workout snack.
Start your day off smoothie (ha) 
Feel Good Smoothie
  • 1/2 cup low fat Greek yogurt 
  • 1 banana (overripe is fine) 
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries 
  • 1/4 cup of fruit juice (whatever's in the fridge) 
  • 5 or 6 ice cubes 
To make:
  1. Combine all ingredients in the blender and puree until smooth. If the mixture is too thick add a little more juice. Pour into a cup and enjoy. 
PS- You can use whatever fruits you have around (fresh or frozen) and you can also add protein powder if you want but Greek yogurt is high in protein on it's own so I don't usually bother.

  1. Jack and I are having this for breakfast this morning! I added a bit of flax seed oil for some healthy omega-3's.
