I don't know why I started doing this, but ever since Jake's had to go to the office everyday, I've been making smoothies for breakfast. I think it's laziness mostly. Before, I made breakfast for everyone and without Jake home, if it weren't for James, I'd probably eat nothing. But since I have to make something for him, and breakfast is supposed to be the "most important" meal of the day-this is a simple solution. BTW-would you believe there is actually a wikipedia article about breakfast? If you check it out-there is a section that describes a typical breakfast in different countries that's neat.
Anyhow-making smoothies is sooooo easy. Toss everything into a blender, processor, or magic bullet (which is what I've been using). Here are the ingredients for my favorite:
These numbers are guesstimations since I don't actually measure and eyeball it. You can adjust to your liking. You can also adjust the "healthiness" of it by the type of milk and yogurt you use.
-1/2 a banana
-1/2 to 3/4 cup plain yogurt
-1/4 cup oatmeal
-10 frozen or fresh cherries (I also love to use strawberries too)
-1 to 1 1/4 cups of milk
Throw ingredients in any order, blend, and enjoy!
