With the new year, both David and I have been trying to eat healthier. He planned out a whole eating regimen full of healthy foods like yogurt and almonds and low-fat meats. To implement these ingredients, he decided to drink a smoothie for breakfast everyday and sometimes even with dinner. He inspired me to do the same.

The best part about this smoothie plan is if you make one with dinner, you can make a little extra for the next morning at the same time. It’s efficient, tasty, healthy and easy. What’s not to like?

In addition to boosting your immune system, non-fat yogurt is full of nutritional benefits from preventing osteoporosis to helping your digestive tract. It contains the good kind of bacteria our bodies need.

So, take away the sugar that’s added to most flavored yogurts, add your own flavor with natural sugars (from your berries and bananas) and make a delicious healthy smoothie today!

Easy Healthy Smoothies

Prepare this easy smoothie the night before for a delicious and healthy breakfast that’s sugar free!

3 Tbs. milk
1 banana
1/2 C. fresh or frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries or fruit of your choice)

    Now, that’s my kind of smoothie! I always drink smoothies for breakfast because it is fast, easy and healthy. I sometimes add in some oat bran for extra fiber.

    Excellent smoothie! My daughter and I have been having a shake or a smoothie every day recently. I also add orange juice – that’s a huge immune system booster as well.
