Its Monday and I woke up FEELING it. After a LONG weekend with Lollapalooza and running around with the Kids I did not want to get out of bed, let alone hit the gym. It was one of those mornings I was craving Netflix and a McMuffin but I made a commitment to go to my weekly spin class and get the kids out and about so they can get a good nap in before tonights Drive-In Movie Party. So reluctantly, I got out of bed and drank my 2 glasses of water, turned the coffee maker on, and thought about what breakfast I can make with minimal effort that will energize me and keep me full until lunch.
Couple drinks of coffee in and LIGHTBULB... Smoothie! I bought a HUGE thing of blueberries yesterday so I decided on a blueberry banana smoothie. Blueberries are one of my favorites because they are packed with fiber and are known to diminish belly fat. WIN. I knew that this morning I needed a little extra protein so I decided to add in Greek Yogurt to give me that extra boost. Instead of adding anymore dairy or juice, I stuck with ZICO coconut water and I had myself a smoothie bowl.
Ingredients 1 banana 1 cup blueberries 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt 1/2 cup coconut water Handful of ice
