We all know that a nourishing breakfast is crucial to a healthy lifestyle, but I admit that I get tired of having eggs every morning. Since I’m trying not to eat grains, cereal and pancakes aren’t in my normal breakfast rotation, so having a variety of healthy breakfast smoothie recipes saves me from getting bored.
I have to go easy on smoothies because they can contain a lot of sugar, but they’re a great way to get more nutrition into our diets.One of my personal favorites is a green smoothie with collards, kale, apples, and pears, and my son almost always has a chocolate banana smoothie before school. I like to add an egg to give him some protein.
I used a small blender to make our smoothies for years, and it worked okay, but I was always fighting with it to get all the pieces down into the blades and get them blended smooth enough for our liking. It wasn’t until I got my Ninja Blender that I started making smoothies regularly. It never ceases to amaze me how much easier cooking is when you have the right kitchen tools on hand.
The Ninja XL features 6 uniquely stacked Ninja blades that crush ice, whole fruits and vegetables in seconds. I don’t even have to cut up my fruits anymore. There are 3 speeds, plus a pulse function, which provide all the blending options you could possibly need; and the 72-ounce pitcher is BPA-free and dishwasher safe. Plus, I love the stainless steel finish. It looks so chic sitting on my kitchen counter.
Now that it’s getting nicer outside and my foot is finally healing, I’m taking this #MakeYourMove challenge from Kohl’s to the next level. Finding some new healthy breakfast smoothie recipes is just one more way I’m making my move towards a healthier, happier 2015.
