Favorite Thing Friday: This Breakfast Smoothie

Smoothies are one of my favourite things to eat for breakfast. They are easy to whip up, convenient to eat on the go, healthy and filling.

I have to admit that I haven't really delved too much into the green-smoothie world, but I like this one so much that I havent had to try other recipes yet. I make this receipe almost every day and love it so much that I wanted to share it with you.

Who doesnt like a breakfast smoothie in a beer pint?

Yours should look greener than this if you follow the receipe below. I was running low on spinach this morning!

Add the following ingredients to a blender:

- About a handful of frozen strawberries

- One banana (frozen or not - although I have a friend who will only use frozen bananas in smoothies because of the added frothiness they provide)

- A big handful of spinach

- A tablespoon of flax seed

- Two tablespoons of oats

- Half a cup of organic, vanilla Greek yogurt

- About two - three cups of milk. I typically use coconut, soy or almond milk, but you can use dairy or whatever type you would prefer.

Blend it all together, pour into a cup, and voilĂ ! 

This is a delicious breakfast that will keep you full all morning.
