I wanted, I NEEDED, to start my day with a refreshing breakfast after my weekend of cookies, chocolate and potatoes. Yup.. that was pretty much all I ate for the last 3 days and boy am I feeling it!
So this morning's simple breakfast was just a way for me to start the day off on the right foot. It was a fun twist on my normally berry based smoothies.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I know I'm late with this but I have contacted the winners of the Creative Spice Set Contest and you can see them listed on the Spice Inc. web site. Look under Limited Edition Spice Sets. Very cool! I'm seriously thinking of asking them if I could have a spice set based on my recipes. I think it would be fun!
Anyway, here's how I made the smoothie...
- ½ cup fat free yogurt, plain (114g)
- About ½ cup canned mandarin oranges in light syrup (126g)
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- About 5-10 ice cubes
Blend all ingredients until smooth.
It wasn't overly sweet but perfectly favored. You could totally use vanilla yogurt but I wanted to keep the sugar content down and figured the sugar in the canned orange slices would be just enough. Which it was, for me anyway. 🙂
