Wednesday's Eats


Quick Breakfast Smoothies

Good morning. I pray ya'll are having a great day so far. Have a lot to do today so thought I would quickly share my smoothie recipe which we have for breakfast most days. This is especially good for all you lovely people who don't like to drink milk since it tastes so good you will drink it and smack your lips. I will also give an orange juice version if you prefer. Both are good. These are quick and easy and are much healthier than the pop tarts and donuts. So enjoy and you can change the recipe to make it yours.

Chocolate Fruit Smoothie

2 cups 2% or skim milk (if you are skinny, use whole milk)
2 cartons yogurt - any flavor
4 scoops chocolate soy powder (other flavor if you prefer)
Frozen or fresh fruit of choice (peaches, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, or melons) If you don't have fruit you have frozen, use the frozen mixed fruit from the frozen food section or any other frozen fruit you like. I also mix the frozen and fresh.
2 tbsp. milled flax seed (I use the Hodgson Mill brand - easy to find)

Combine in blender until smooth. Serves 2 or can be stretched to 3 small ones.

For the orange juice version use orange juice, not milk and we like to use strawberries, peaches, and blueberries with the orange juice. If you are lactose intolerant, skip the yogurt.

You could also use cranberry juice or any of the cranberry blends. The cranberry/apple juice makes good smoothies.

You can also make good Popsicles with these recipes. Put back into the empty, clean yogurt cups, stick a plastic spoon in for the handle, cover with plastic wrap after cutting small slit for spoon handle and freeze.

I know you will enjoy these as much as we do and put other ingredients in, leave some of these out and make it yours. They are quick, easy and good for you.

Nuff said,

The Georgia Peach
