S = Smoothie

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, Running, most morning I'm running late. Which means I dont have enough time in the morning to make myself a nice healthy breakfast. I could grab a donut on my way out the door, but I like to think of myself as someone who is somewhat healthy. The occasional donut is okay, but the quick breakfast I usually turn to is a smoothie.

Here is a great recipe I found on allrecipes.com:

1 banana
1/2 cup frozen mango
1/3 cup plain yogurt             
1/2 cup orange mango juice
Combine everything in a blender. Blend until smooth.

Check out allrecipes.com for more great recipes.

  2. Quick post. Sounds great! Any ideas on substituting yogurt with something non-dairy?

  5. Hi Kris - My sister, Amy, who is going vegan usually subsitutes dairy ingredients for either juice or soy milk depending on what kind of smoothie she is making.

    Jenny - thanks for the recipe, sounds excellent!

    Thanks everyone for all the great comments.
