Healthy Fruit And Oat Smoothie - Lose Weight With Smoothies!


Ingredients: Servings 1


  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup yogurt 
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
Directions:



Blend 30 - 45 seconds or to desired consistency using a professional grade blender. 


If you are looking for a weigh to painlessly lose weight, then switching to a smoothie for breakfast is the way to go! I believe people really underestimate how unhealthy most of the popular breakfast items are. We often go for convenient foods and convenience comes at a cost. In this case, the cost is that the food is unhealthy. But don't worry, replace that unhealthy breakfast item with a nice energizing smoothie and you are already 1 step closer to your goal!

3 Benefits Of Drinking Organic Fruit Smoothies:

1. Get the vitamins and nutrients you need!

In our daily lives, getting the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables in our diet can be quite a challenge. One great thing about smoothies is that you get all the vitamins and nutrients you need and they even taste great! Kids love them, parents love them, what's not to love about smoothies? Trust me, I understand that it's hard to put down the sausage egg and cheese muffins, trust me I do. But in the long run, I have so much more natural energy since I cut out the unneeded convenient unhealthy breakfast items. 

2. Quick And Easy To Make!

Another plus with smoothies is that they are quick and easy to prepare. I know there have been many breakfasts that I have skipped just due to lack of time before work. Smoothies are quick and easy and can be prepped ahead of time so all you have to do is empty a zip lock bag into a blender and push a button and you are ready to go! It really doesn't get much more convenient than that.

What I like to do is to split up the fruit and ingredients into zip lock bags for a whole week at a time. This way when the kids are getting dressed and ready for school, I can just pull out fruit and throw it in a Nutrininja and it's ready within 1 minute!

3. Kids Love Smoothies!

So smoothies are convenient, they are good for you, and kids love smoothies? Sounds like a home run to me! Getting your kids to eat healthy is not always the easiest thing to do. But when it comes to smoothies your children will be begging you to make smoothies not just for breakfast but also for snacks and maybe even meals later in the day!
