Brain Food: Smoothie On-The-Go

Good Morning Everybody!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it gets your metabolism running and your brain going after, hopefully, a good nights sleep.  A problem I face almost every morning is that I am in a rush do not have the time to prepare a good breakfast.  With finals approaching, I know I need to be on my A game so I came up with a cheap and easy solution.  For a while I was buying yoplait yogurts and taking them on the bus with me, but then I was stuck carrying around a spoon all day. I decided to do a little experiment, and it turned out great.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bananna
  • 1 yoplait yogurt
  • 1 cup ice
  • blender

Make sure to wash your blender before use it if it has been in a cabinet for a while. Then, put the cup of ice, yogurt and sliced banana into the blender and hold down the smoothie button.  After 30 seconds turn off the blender and mix it all around. Blend again with the smoothie button for about 30 seconds or until all of the ice is blended.

I actually made this smoothie last night right before bed, poured it into a disposable styrofoam cup, covered it in plastic wrap and hoped it would be perfectly chilled in the morning to grab on my way out the door. I definitely enjoyed the peach mango smoothie this morning and am going to try different fruit and yogurt flavors!
