Gluten Free Breakfast of Champions - The Smoothie

Since Wheaties are no longer a
breakfast menu option in our household, we have turned our sights to the
blender and its seemingly endless possibilities of breakfast
concoctions. The kids look forward to choosing which fruit will succumb
to the power of the blades as well as who gets first dibs on pressing
“pulse” or “puree”. For me, it’s a great way to get some servings of

Here’s our recipe for a Good Morning Tropical Smoothie. Feel
free to add whatever fruit you’d like – fresh or frozen. Heck, when the

Good Morning Smoothie
1 banana
1 cup Kefir (I use So Delicious Brand Cultured Coconut Milk – Vanilla)
1 cup fresh or frozen fruit (strawberry, pineapple, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry or mango)
Dash of vanilla extract (McCormick brand)
1-2 tablespoons agave nectar
heaping tablespoon rice protein powder (I use NutriBiotic brand –
Plain. For those that can have dairy, you can use a gluten free whey
protein powder instead)
2 tbsp Silk Vanilla yogurt
Crushed ice
Blend until smooth. If too thick, you can add a dash of either rice milk or almond milk until desired consistency.
