Drink | Jump Start: Smoothie Love

I cant believe its Monday again already! This morning I dragged myself out of bed earlier than usual to exercise. Usually I try to stay in bed until the last possible minute but I asked the husband last night to pull me out of bed if I resisted today. 🙂

I’ve been using the Nike Training Club app on my phone for my workouts lately and I’ve felt the difference. The “Ab Burner” left me sore for 4 days. I haven’t been doing very good lately working out 2-3 times a week which was my goal, but I figured today would be a great day to try to start that habit up again.

After the “ab burner” 15-min. workout complete with Regina Spektor and Glee music, I got the “Drill Seeker” Badge which rewarded me with some tasty smoothie recipes!

I love smoothies. Normally I’d just grab a cup of coffee and run to my train but after working up a little sweat, a smoothie sounded a lot healthier! We have had a big bag of frozen berries in our freezer and we had a banana that was too ripe for me to eat by itself so I got out the blender and started dumping things in.

For my “Berry-nana Smoothie,” I combined:

  • A big handful of mixed berries (frozen or fresh)
  • Half a banana
  • 2-3 tablespoons yogurt (I only had vanilla in my fridge, which was perfect)
  • A cup or so of apple juice (depending how thick you like your smoothies)

Et Voila!

Berry-nana Smoothie

Note: Nike’s recipe called for Muesli and mango but I didn’t have any of either.

How do you begin your day and get energized? Any favorite healthy breakfasts you recommend?
