Strawberry Breakfast Smoothie!

or Any Berry Breakfast Smoothie.

I’m ashamed to admit that I have a big stack of paperwork sitting on my desk that needs to be done, ‘yesterday’. I hate paper work so I found a great job to do instead. Reorganize the fridge and freezer. To my great delight at the back of the top shelf I found a few more tubs of strawberries. Picked not so long ago at the beginning of the summer, with my sidekicks (granddaughters). There was such an amazing crop of strawberries this year. Looking at them now, they are huge, big, round, juicy and so sweet. Yum.

As I haven’t had breakfast yet, I thought one of my smoothies would sure hit the spot. And it did. So now I think I might want to share my recipe with you.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries ( any berries can be substituted)
  • 1 cup buttermilk (plain yogurt can be used which is a bit more tangy tasting so you might need a bit more honey for sweetening)
  • 1 cup of orange juice (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup honey ( depending on the sweetness of your berries and your taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3¬†tablespoons of sunflower seeds (dry roasted)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. (if you want to drink your smoothie with a straw, other wise add the sunflowers at the end). Pour into two tall glasses (one for now and one for later). Enjoy.

Darn, that pile of papers is still sitting there. What can I come up with now, to do?¬† Wash down the walls? ¬†Clean out the Garage,…which would take longer?…Hmmm

    I will have to try this, I have never had a smoothie with sunflower seeds added, sounds delicous.

    In college, I would clean instead of study – now I cook instead of work. I think we could be friends!
