I have been on a breakfast smoothie diet. I have discovered that if I drink a 250-280 calorie smoothie in the morning I can make it to lunch without serious hunger pangs. If I eat cereal and milk with an equal amount of calories I am hungry in a couple hours again. Ravenously hungry. And so I have been making a new smoothie every morning.
POM Wonderful offered me free 100 % pomegranate juice to play with again this year. I could not resist adding it to a smoothie. Pomegranate juice is chock full of antioxidants and healthy juice vibes.
Here is my favorite combo that even includes something from the pantry -- canned pineapple.
1/2 cup 100 % pomegranate juice
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1 Cup chunked pineapple
1/4 cup lowfat or nonfat vanilla yogurt
1 to 2 tsp of honey.
