I’m not a morning person. You may have noticed this. So breakfast for me is often a granola bar or a piece of toast with peanut butter and jelly. Not the healthiest breakfast ever. Lately, though, I’ve been cooking these up a lot of mornings. They’re a fantastic blend of nonfat yogurt, berries, kefir, seeds, rice, and banana. Quick, easy, and delicious.
Dump everything in a blender.
It’s pretty simple. Feel free to play around with it. I’ve used various flavors of kefir, flavored yogurts, different frozen fruits, a different seed/nut mix, changed the rice for quinoa, all sorts of things. I’d love to know what you come up with, if you find particularly great combinations.
