For those of you who may not know me so well, I absolutely love smoothies!! I have a strange lust for sweet juicy meals and smoothies are a fantastic way of getting in a lot of nutritious and fueling calories into you with little to no effort. I usually start the day with a liter of juice or a big smoothie. I only put in fruit (frozen or fresh depending on what I’ve got), occasionally some greens, and juice, water or coconut water to adjust the consistency.
Today my breakfast/lunch smoothie was made of:
- 6 med/small(ish) bananas ~ 539 cal
- 3 cups of frozen raspberries ~ 191 cal
- 1/2 a pineapple ~ 226 cal
- 1 cup water
Making it about 950 calories broken down to 90.9% carbohydrates, 4.3% fat and 4.7% protein. This was a delicious and energy-packed way to kick off the day. I know some of you might be thinking that 950 calories is a lot for one meal, but it’s all 100% healthy and nutritious calories, low fat and very filling! I love healthy carbs and they love me right back! :)
What are some of your favorite fruit smoothies? Do you like adding anything else to them to make them tastier?
