Healthy Strawberry Smoothie Recipe
I messed around and watched this documentary called Food, Inc. (I don’t know why because I know how shows like that freak me out) I’m glad I watched it though. It really made me wanna clean up my diet and be more aware of the foods I put into my body. Now I’m not saying I’m giving up my cheesecakes and stuff (whoa Nellie, Rome wasn’t built in a day), but I am definitely going to be making some gradual changes in my families diet.
I’m not a big breakfast person and most of the time I turn to smoothie recipes to get me through until lunch. I love being able to throw a bunch of yummy, healthy ingredients into a blender and have a wholesome, quick, easy and cheap breakfast that keeps me full and energized (Ok so that sounded real advertisement-like huh?)
So here is one of my favorite healthy smoothie recipes. It’s loaded with good stuff like broccoli sprouts and wheat germ. Oh now don’t make that face, you totally can’t even taste that healthy crap in there.
This smoothie is sweet, creamy and just a really great way to start your day or any time of day really. And even though I just got finished making one…I think Imma go in the kitchen and make another one. Just because I feel so freakin pretty and healthy when I’m drinking it for some reason.
( I don’t measure this stuff when I make it, so I’m guessing here)
Pour into a blender/ food processor and blend until completely smooth.
