Just a simple little recipe. No added sugar but it does have 35g of carb so not for you Keto guy. It also has 34g of protein though and 2 servings of your 5 a day so a good healthy start to the day. I use my nutribullet for this with the big cup which it quite completely fills. My big appetite is my downfall.
Now on with the recipe.
100 frozen blueberries
1 good handful (about a cup) spinach
30g shelled hemp seeds
200g Fage 0% Greek yogurt
300ml or to fill line of almondmilk
Blend until smooth.
I did say this was a simple recipe. Often I assume something this simple isn’t worth mentioning; but then again, perhaps for those that tend to overthink and just for inspiration it is worth just throwing it out there. Tomorrow I will using raspberries for a bit of a change as well as substituting chia seeds as I am out of hemp but that is the beauty of the basics….they are a starting point.
I like the creaminess I get from the yogurt as well as the protein boost. I also add the hemp mostly as a protein source though the nutritional stats for it are pretty good. Most importantly for me right now is that I had noticed my fruit and vegetable servings had been suffering a bit lately so this smoothie packs the punch I need. I hope you enjoy this breakfast as much as I do.
Oh and for the record, the regular Greek yogurt with fat is fine too but my store only had the 0% so I made do.
