The Fresh Start Smoothie – A Smoothie to fuel you in the morning

The Fresh Start Smoothie with pineapple, orange, almond, milk and yogurt

I made The Fresh Start Smoothie to give you a substantial amount of vitamins and minerals but also to include a balanced amount of carbohydrate, protein, and fat to help fuel you until your next meal. It includes a variety of typical breakfast ingredients. The blend of ingredients gives this smoothie a fruity, fresh taste and a smooth texture.

Info about The Fresh Start Smoothie

This smoothie blends quite well in about 15 seconds. Blend for slightly longer to ensure the pulp of the orange is broken up or change oranges for tangerines as they generally have less pulp. The nutritional values will be quite similar.

I always use almond powder as it is just easier to blend. You can substitute this for another form of almond although results may vary and it may require more time to blend.
