the breakfast of champions.

Good Morning! We have a busy day planned for today. The arrival of last minute visitors, cooking classes, cleaning house. It's one of those busy, busy summer days.

You're busy too, you say? Well, hop on board this band wagon... we're making our favorite breakfast!

No heavy waffles, soggy cereal, or greasy eggs to weigh us down today. Just a few simple ingredients and a quick whirl in the blender.

I always manage to find a way to fit in some:
The kids know and come running when they hear the blender motor running! Breakfast is on!

What do we put in our smoothies? Well, it's usually something like this. A cup full of ice, a container of yogurt, a hand full of berries or other fruit, a 1/2 C milk, a teaspoon or two of protein powder, and a teaspoon of flax seed. Blend to perfection, and voila:

Oh yes...smoothies are heavenly! Looks like you guys are having one fun summer so far. Take advantage of all there is to do in Utah for us!

I was just going to leave a comment on spinach too, it's great, you can't taste it at ALL! It will be green so it doesn't look too appealing, we call them monster smoothies.
