It's going to be getting hotter outside. Breakfast smoothies will be a perfect start to your day. Some smoothies can be upwards of 400 calories. That's way too much.
Here's the anatomy of a smoothie (thanks to fitnessmagazine.com March 2010) to help you decide how to construct your smoothie goodness.
1 cup low-fat milk (118) calories
1 cup chopped or frozen fruit (53-84 calories)
1/2 cup sherbet (107 calories)
1/2 cup plain low-fat frozen yogurt (110 calories)
1 tablespoon honey (64 calories)
1 to 2 scoops soy or whey protein powder (120 to 240 calories)
2 tablespoons peanut butter (188 calories)
These are for 20 oz. smoothies. Mix and match your smoothie for different variations, but stay within 250 calories for good breakfast in the morning.
