A Family { Breakfast} Smoothie

by zesty on February 22, 2013 · 3 comments

Happy Friday!

It is smoothie day today. I have been quietly detoxing this week with the assistance of an RD and fellow client Danielle Omar. I will not sit here and say this is easy but it is somewhat fun and challenging. The details of this detox essentially remove dairy, sugar and gluten from your diet. For Cooking, that is a difficult but I have five days under my belt and am feeling pretty good. A few headaches on day 1 but other than that – we are good.

Breakfast has been a smoothie everyday and this one I want to share with you. FYI Cooking Juniors and Mrs. Cooking are loving the smoothies.



  • Frozen raspberries and blueberries
  • Frozen banana
  • Flax seed
  • Chia seeds
  • Almond butter
  • Ice cubes
  • Almond milk
  • Protein powder


  1. Add in blender and mix until smooth
  2. Enjoy!

Zesty Tip:  Ice cubes are a great way to adjust the thickness of the smoothie.  You can also omit the almond milk and just use water…. still tastes great

Have a super weekend and I will be back on Monday with another little something from the kitchen.

Take care

These sound great! Have you found a protein powder that doesn’t have whey or other dairy in it? I’d like to find one without whey or soy that tastes good, if you have any recommendations.

Perfect breakfast! And these are such a pretty color :) I love adding flax and chia to smoothies for an extra good morning kick!

This looks like a great breakfast smoothie! I am going to have to try it out. I haven’t used almond butter in a smoothie so I’ll have to try that out!
