When you think fast food, you probably think of greasy hamburgers and trans fat fries. Smoothies have redefined my idea of fast food. My fast food go-to is actually nourishing, inexpensive and makes me feel terrific.
A staple of the PCOS diet and PCOS lifestyle, my basic smoothie recipe literally takes about a minute to whip up, and you can drink it on the go. You can change it with the season or your mood by swapping fruit. I find myself reaching for the blender when I have none of my usual protein staples in the fridge. That’s when the kids get grilled frozen waffles for breakfast or grilled cheese for lunch, and I’ll have a smoothie.
The PCOS Diva Smoothie
1 cup Dairy Alternative Milk
1 scoop PCOS Diva Power Protein
1 T PCOS Diva Power Greens
2 t PCOS Diva Fiber Powder
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen fruit (any of the following raspberries, blueberries, peaches, strawberries)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
handful of greens (kale, collards or spinach)
Blend all ingredients until smooth.
I usually make myself a smoothie every morning for breakfast. Watch this video below to see how simple these are to create:Best Breakfast for PCOS - Power Smoothie
