Home-cooking: Breakfast Smoothie

My parents are on vacation for 2 weeks so I’ll have to fend for myself in the meals department for the time being.

Not wanting to rely on takeout and instant noodles for 2 weeks, I started to make some simple meals and here’s to chronicling those attempts!

And thus..the first post of my “Attempts at Cooking” series!

Breakfast Smoothie

I didn’t have actual food in my fridge one morning so I just took whatever I had and made a smoothie.  Simple. I was originally just going to make a banana smoothie, but I also realized I had some ground flax seed and some yogurt, so I added those too.

Nativa Organics Flax Seed with Blueberries

I got this from Shoppers Drug Mart and it was on sale.  It was pretty good.  If you haven’t tried flax seed before it’s got a nice wheaty aroma to it.  This particular one was especially suited for smoothies because it’s mixed with blueberries.

Also, the high amount of omega-3 fatty acids in flax seed are best absorbed if the seeds are grounded.  This comes grounded so it’s convenient!  By the way I add this to my yogurt every morning at work.

Yoplait tropical yoghurt pack

As for the yogurt, I got the Tropical pack of Yoplait yogurts.  They’re all pretty good actually, especially the Lychee-Raspberry and P-C-B.

Creamy mango Yoplait yoghurt

I picked the mango one this time.

So just put everything in the blender, add as much milk as you like (more for thinner, less for thicker), and blend!!  No sugar needed!

Comment? Question? I'd love to hear from you!
