It’s no surprise that Kim Kardashian and other celebrities love a Healthy Fruit Smoothie after a vigorous workout. Not only are smoothies delicious, quick and easy to make, high in vitamins, super healthy for you – it’s a perfect way to start your day. Is there a connection between celebrities looking fabulous and Healthy Fruit Smoothies? Definitely. A brightly coloured smoothie is clearly this season’s hottest accessory for stars like Kim, Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, Ashley Tisdale and many more.
Unlike most celebrities, who have someone else to whip up their breakfast, most of us can’t afford that luxury. If you are like me and running every morning to catch the bus just to get to work on time, you will see that a smoothie literally will take you under 5 minutes to prepare, clean up and go.
Dr. Oz‘s Quick Magical Breakfast Blaster has 136 calories; you add 1/3 cup of soy protein, 1/2 tablespoon flaxseed oil, 1/4 cup blueberries (I use frozen to help smoothie like consistency), 1/2 large banana (this is your flavour boost), 1/2 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon Psyillium seed husks and 12 ounces of ice. Combine all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. That’s it!
I sometimes substitute the banana for frozen mango for a change of taste since as I have a smoothie every day. The great thing about a breakfast smoothie, you can put it in a portable cup, just like you would your coffee and go!
