My healthy breakfast recipes often come in smoothie form.
First, smoothies make for easy and quick healthy recipes.
And second, but most importantly, my children love them.
The peaches in this smoothie can be replaced with any other frozen fruit. I particularly like strawberries, or frozen pineapple core.
Yes, frozen pineapple core. The core is the most nutritious part of the pineapple. So whenever you eat a fresh pineapple, save the core in the freezer for smoothies!
This smoothie features chia pudding, which is really what adds the nutritional punch. If you're not familiar with chia, give it a try! Chia is a great source of protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and calcium. Check out all of the chia seed nutritional information here.
If you already have a smoothie recipe you love, you can always add a spoonful of chia to increase the nutritional value of any smoothie. Chia seeds create a tapioca-like gelled consistency when they are soaked.
And like every smoothie, you can always add a handful of baby spinach to the blender without affecting the taste. Of course, your smoothie will be green, but I see that as my big green pat on the back for starting the day off with veggies. Really, a green smoothie is a small price to pay for good health, wouldn't you say?
