Sunrise Smoothie: Smoothie or Juice?
By Let'sHaveMixture on June 26, 2014
Is it a smoothie when it has no ice, no milk or dairy alternative?
What would you classify a liquid of nothing but pulverized juice? I call it a great way to start the day. But I am hesitant to call it a smoothie as so often a smoothie is thought to be a liquid meal. Sure a tall glass of fruit can be filing but it is not exactly a balanced meal. It fits more along the lines of a juice or the juicing fad.
Regardless of what you call it, if the first thing you consume contains more than half the recommended intake of fruits for the day, you have to feel good about it. I have found that aside from coffee and a small handful of nuts I can be completely satisfied with a juice in the morning.
However if you are sending kids off to school or camp you may want to provide them with something slightly more balanced. Serve this along side some protein. Maybe some yogurt, eggs, a handful of nuts, or even a heaping spoonful of peanut butter whatever they prefer to have some protein to start their day.
1/2 cup Pineapple
1/4 cup Apple
Blend and enjoy.
This recipe makes about 8-10 ounces. One thing I have noticed is a lot of people drink or at least blog smoothies that are served in large glasses.
