With my son in school full time now, I find myself having less time to eat breakfast which makes for a very grumpy me. So I had to find a way to get a power packed breakfast in the quickest way possible with the easiest delivery method (if you know what I mean).
So enter my Peach Pina Colada Smoothie!
It is smooth, creamy and intensely satisfying. Not to mention it has everything you need for a breakfast on the go AND makes you think of the beach!
The milk and yogourt are both a rich source of calcium and protein. The bacteria in the yogourt fosters a healthy colon, decreases yeast infections, boosts your immunity and can lower your cholesterol. No bad, huh?
Pineapple has one of the highest values of manganese. In fact, 1 cup of pineapple provides 77% of your daily manganese requirements. Manganese is an essential nutrient need for bone production, collagen production and the creation of specific enzymes to control blood sugar.
Coupled with the pineapple, the peach provides a good source of vitamins A and C and because of its skin is a great source of fibre.
What more can you ask for in a smoothie!
All you have to do is add everything to the blender. Process until smooth.
Then serve and enjoy!
