This high fiber smoothie is tasty and will keep your tummy satisfied through the morning!
How many of you resolved to start taking better care of yourself, and watching what you eat for the new year? Whether you resolved just to eat better, maybe just promising yourself a good breakfast every morning, or plan to drop some pounds, this smoothie is a healthy and delicious way to kick start your day.
Who doesn’t need a kick start on Monday morning?!?
I am no weight loss expert, so you can take my advice any way you want. But I am living proof that you can lose weight by monitoring your calorie intake (duh), moving more (yes, exercise), and also making sure you get enough fiber and water each day. That fiber clings to the bad stuff we put in our bodies and the water keeps things flushing on through. I am going to leave it there, this is a food site, and I am not here to gross you out.
I have researched LOTS of recipes that are high in fiber, foods that are also. Maybe someday I will be able to ingest one of those green drinks, but for now, I have a hard time getting past the weird color. Until then, I find new and yummy ways to switch up my morning breakfast. I love smoothies. So, you will be seeing new ones from me here and there.
I will tell you that I also feel like “if I am not chewing, I am not eating.” So slimfast and stuff like that never ever appealed to me. If you keep the fiber high in your smoothie, if definitely sustains you longer. Like I said, I am proof.
So, try it, give it a whirl. See what you think. I would love to hear!
I have a few different smoothies on my site, Here are a few of my other favorites!
Like me, was your New Year’s Resolution to start eating better and moving more?? I’d love to hear what you’re doing to change your lifestyle?
- 1 small banana

Frozen bananas and fruits make smoothies really easy and reduce the amount of ice you need to add!
