You may have already figured out that I love food. No? Well, yes, yes I do…A LOT. Since I love food so much, I take extra care to make sure I keep myself healthy by going to the gym regularly. I think it’s important to keep your body moving in some way or another, whether it’s by walking, swimming, biking, lifting weights, or participating in some other sport.
My busy schedule requires that I workout early in the mornings, meaning that I don’t always have time to make myself a hearty breakfast. Luckily, I’ve found that smoothies help solve the early morning breakfast problem. They’re quick and easy to make, plus they’re filling and nutritious. It’s an across-the-board win if you ask me!
For example, did you know that Yoplait sells already-prepared smoothie mixes that you just can just pop in the blender and enjoy? Perfect!
Or that along with frozen fruit, Dole sells Smoothie Shakers, to which you just add your favorite juice and shake? Talk about convenience!
Don’t worry, the fruits in these mixes are as nutritious as the fresh kind, since they’ve been flash frozen to preserve quality and taste. You can read about it here!
Anyway, I thought it’d be fun to show you how easy and convenient it is to make a smoothie just about anywhere using frozen ingredients. So, with my frozen fruit, a blender, and a couple of cups, I made myself a Mr. Food Yummy Breakfast Drink smoothie right at the gym!
I changed up the recipe just a bit to suit my own personal taste, but the process is basically the same…
First, you pour all of your ingredients into a blender:
And finally…ENJOY! (I’d show you a picture of me guzzling this drink down, but it was post-workout, so I was kind of a sweaty mess!)
Now, it’s your turn to discover the convenience of using frozen fruit and other frozen and refrigerated items to make a delicious and healthy smoothie. There are some great recipes at Easy Home Meals that’ll help get you started!
