Mornings can be rough and sometimes there just isn’t enough coffee or tea in the world to wake us up. Instead of reaching for a sugar-loaded donut for a wake-up call, our dietitians share their favorite recipes for that morning boost.
Mary Bennett, RD, LD, CDE, Registered Dietitian at NorthShore, shares her go-to single serving breakfast smoothie.
Strawberry-Banana Breakfast SmoothieIngredients:
Jessica Hicks, MBA, RD, LDN, Registered Dietitian at NorthShore, likes to add Kefir to her smoothies to get a nice probiotic in. This recipe is great for nausea, thanks to the ginger and whey.
Ginger Peach SmoothieIngredients:
Lori Bumbaco, Oncology Dietitian at NorthShore, loves this on-the-go recipe that is perfect year-round. Make sure to let your green tea cool a little bit before you blend it – no one likes a warm smoothie!
Berry Green Tea SmoothieIngredients:
Kim Hammon, Registered Dietitian at NorthShore, likes to start her week with a nutritional smoothie that can be made with easy-to-find fruits. It’s a great way to sneak some veggies in for kids, too!
