Re: Shake for breakfast but what to put into it?

"Not good as in we shouldn't do it."

Who shouldn't?

The problem with "good" and "bad" is that without context, they are meaningless.

Re: Shake for breakfast but what to put into it?

I have a smoothie almost every morning, have for the last 5 years and I haven't seen any evidence of it being "not good."
  • 1 cup mixed frozen berries (strawberry/raspberry/blueberry)
  • 6 oz milk (cow/almond/coconut all work)
  • 2 oz OJ
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • scoop of vanilla protein powder
Bacon and/or nuts go well with it too.

Re: Shake for breakfast but what to put into it?

Recently I have began tinkering with breakfast smoothies to switch up my eggs and turkey bacon. Here is what I have been doing and I LOVE it:

4 cups spinach
1/2 cup coconut milk
5oz cherries
1 scoop either vanilla or chocolate whey

It really does taste quite yummy to me! I have put a drop or 2 of vanilla stevia extract a few times just to sweeten it up but it doesn't need it.

Re: Shake for breakfast but what to put into it?

I figured this would be better than starting a new post for almost identical info, but here's a twist: Ideas for a WARM smoothie? Nearly daily during the week, I do the usual 4 block zone smoothie with some subs (1 cup frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup 0% plain greek yogurt, 2 Tbs protein powder, almonds/pecans [12-15]).

Today I realized that this will NOT fly during the winter. Hell, it was above freezing, but rainy and craptastic out, and I nearly dumped the smoothie so I could make room for coffee! So, how about it: Anyone have any luck with warm smoothie recipes? As a commuter, I'm not the biggest fan of trying to bring egg wraps on the train, especially as that limits the amount of salsa goodness i can safely apply without endangering my clothing! :S

Thanks!

Re: Shake for breakfast but what to put into it?

My daily shake -

1 cup baby spinach (or broccoli)
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
1/4 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 cup water
1 scoop whey protein
1 scoop Amazing Grass (greens powder)
Blend

I'm a Type I Diabetic and it keeps my BG's down - I have the same thing for breakfast every day so that I know my bodies insulin needs.

Re: Shake for breakfast but what to put into it?

Warm smoothie sounds kinda gross actually, i think they call that "soup."

But just don't include frozen incredients, even keeping them in the refrigerator will make them much warmer then the freezer. And use fresh vegetables/fruit not kept in the fridge.

I also think your being a lil' dramatic about how you can't drink a cold smoothie in cold weather; its really not the end of the world.

Re: Shake for breakfast but what to put into it?

Maybe not news to a lot of you but I tried drinking raw eggs for the first time recently, and they're really good.

Yesterday
5 raw free range eggs
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 oz heavy cream
3-4 oz whole milk
cinnamon
vanilla extract



I'll probably replace the coconut oil with coconut milk since it ruined the consistency, but otherwise very delicious.

Must be nice and warm down there, Florida-boy. We don't shut down for a few mm of snow up here! Just kidding...it was more of a 'moving into real winter' kind of observation, when a hot coffee or something like that would be much more enjoyable than cold gruel, no matter how fortifying.

Good points about not using frozen stuff. I actually make the smoothies the night before and then fridge them overnight, but I assume that keeps a LOT of that frozen-ness (new words daily, check back), so using fresh/counter-top stuff might work nicely.

Seriously, jamba juice has nothing to offer during the winter? there has to be some sort of warm smoothie that isn't soup...no?
