BREAKFAST ENERGY SMOOTHIE INGREDIENTS

To make this smoothie, you will need:

 ORANGE JUICE: two cups of orange juice, you can use your favorite kind of orange juice.

 YOGURT: 1 cup of yogurt, I always have a big tube of vanilla yogurt but you can use any flavored yogurt.

 VANILLA EXTRACT: just a small 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, it really helps to bring out the flavors in the fruit!

 MIXED BERRIES: 2 cups of frozen or fresh mixed berries. I like to buy the frozen mixed berries but you can use any berries you like. Sometimes, I even add a banana.

 ICE CUBES: if you don’t use frozen fruit, I would add a handful of ice cubes.

HOW TO MAKE A SMOOTHIE

STEP 1: Place all ingredients into blender (liquid ingredients first).

STEP 2: Blend on high for 2 minutes or until smooth. Scrap down sides and blend for another 30 seconds.

STEP 3: Serve and enjoy!

ADDITIONAL SMOOTHIE MAKING TIPS

ADD PROTEIN TO KEEP YOU FULL:  When I don’t have time to make breakfast, I add my favorite  protein powder to this smoothie. I love that I can’t taste the protein powder (I hate the taste of protein powder) but I know it’s there because it keeps me full until lunch time.

USE FROZEN FRUIT: I like to use frozen fruit instead of ice cubes in my smoothies. For this smoothie you want to use mixed berries, like blueberries, raspberries, blackberries….these berries give you energy! And to make it super easy, I just  buy the chopped frozen mixed berries in the frozen section of my grocery store, because I’m all about making things quicker and easier!

FILL UP YOUR BLENDER: You always want to layer your ingredients softest to hardest (frozen). First, add the orange juice, vanilla extract, and yogurt. Then, add the fresh or frozen fruit.

EXTRA SMOOTHIE LEFTOVER? If you have some leftover smoothie, you can put it in the fridge for later. Once your ready to drink it, I like to add a little extra yogurt to the smoothie to thicken it up again.

SMOOTHIE MAKING TOOLS

BEST BLENDER FOR MAKING SMOOTHIES:  I make smoothies almost everyday and I’ve gone through my share of blenders. Here is the blender I use everyday, it’s fast and makes the best smoothies. I also liked that it comes with the single serve option, because sometimes blending is a hassle because  I don’t feel like cleaning the pitcher. But with the single serve, it is a lot less hassle to clean, plus there isn’t anything wasted because I can make just the right amount. And it has no problems blending ice!

  1. Great recipe! I think I’ll give it a go tomorrow, I might even add a spoonful of honey to mix things up! Or maybe I should say to blend things up?

  2. I saw you like Vital Protein powder. There seem to be several. Which you use? Is it the unflavored collagen one (blue label?) I really want to try your smoothie. It looks delicious. Thanks.

  3. What brand of protein powder do you use? I haven’t been able to find one that I haven’t been able to taste. Thanks!

  4. i love smoothie i always take smoothie morning as my breakfast

  5. Been looking for a smoothie recipe without bananas. They always taste like nothing but banana no matter what else you put in, IMHO. Just made yours. Absolutely LOVE this recipe!!!

  6. Saw the pretty picture of this smoothie on pinterest. I like using vanilla extract too in smoothies for a little flavor. Good kid friendly smoothie

  7. I love this smoothie! I made it exact the first time and it was yummy, this time I added honey and some chia seeds and it is sooo good. It’s a bit thicker, so if you don’t like it too thick, add more juice.
    Great recipe though, ty for sharing ????

  8. Can I add protein powder to this shake? 

  9. Hi.. Thank your for the recipes. I’m not a yogurt fan. is there something else I can add in exchange to the yogurt?

  10. I make a similar smoothie every morning, drink it about 8 and I don’t even think about food until noon. I use, about 1/3 cup almond milk, small banana, 1 cup plain greek yogurt, 1 cup frozen organic mixed berries, 1 cup organic kale, 1 T chia or flax seeds (ground), and 1/4 cup ice.  I add the milk, banana, and kale and grind up first, then add berries, grind, and then add yogurt, chia and ice. It makes a very tall glass so could share with another. You do not need any sugar or vanilla flavoring at all, and  you do not taste the kale at all. It is naturally sweet!

  11. I tried it.
    Instead i used plain yogurt.
    But it is still delicious.

  12. I make a smoothie every morning with red Berry V8 juice frozen blueberries frozen tart cherries fresh apple and pineapple a tangerine also a 1/4 inch fresh Ginger with yogurt this smoothie is so filling and taste great plus I am losing belly fat.

  13. Love making smoothies…just starting the process. Wondering about chia seeds? Have you used these in your smoothies? How much? What exactly is the benefit? Thanks for your help. Can’t wait to try this tomorrow.

  14. I just made this with frozen berries/vanilla/pineapple juice & the new Silk So delicious coconut Milk vanilla flavor (dairy/soy free) Yogurt. YUM

  15. I will definitely try this smoothie recipe but will use soya yogurt as I don’t like to have to much dairy.????

  16. I don’t like to use flavored yogurt…too much processed sugar. If I use plain yogurt, how much honey would be needed?

  17. Does it have to have yogurt?

  18. Can this be made without orange juice?

  19. For sure I’ll try this as I really need to get less snugglish early in the morning. Sounds delicious too.

  20. These look delicious! But, I was wondering if the recipe can be adapted to take out the dairy products? Is it possible to make the smoothie without using milk or yogurt, and have a similar result taste-wise? I understand that the texture may not be as smooth and creamy. Thank you for your time.

    • I’m not sure because I have never made this smoothie without yogurt but I assume the taste will be the same, just not as thick. You could use almond milk instead, too!
