For those days you want something quick and simple, try a smoothie. The simplest versions are composed of simply a cup of milk and a cup of fruit tossed in a blender, while the more elaborate include a cup of ice as well.
This can be any type of fruit or a combination – just whatever you have available. This morning we took a can of pineapple, some ice, a cup of milk and a bit of powdered milk to make it richer and tossed it in the blender. In less than a minute my daughter and I are eating a fruity breakfast, and I didn’t have to beg her to try it!
We made ours as a late breakfast, but you can make this any time you need a quick pick-me-up. Make this with soymilk and it would be dairy-free, and it is naturally caffeine-free.
