An Easy Morning Smoothie

The warming weather (and rising humidity) signals to me that it is smoothie season! After years of making smoothies in our tiny little food processor, my husband and I finally invested in a real life, honest to goodness blender! Smoothies are a great option for mornings when I'm short on time, or a great afternoon treat. My favorite breakfast smoothie is a tropical mixture that always reminds me of summertime and beaches. I may not be able to rush off on a beach vacation, but at least I can have a beach smoothie! If you don't have time to make a smoothie in the morning, I would suggest making it the day before and putting it in the freezer. You can take it out right before bed and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Instant breakfast! Let me know if you have a favorite easy, quick breakfast you'd like to share!

Tropical Breakfast Smoothie

-1 C. Milk (I use vanilla soy milk)
-1 C. Frozen Strawberries
-2/3 C. Fresh Pineapple
-1/2 C. Oatmeal
-1 Tbs. Unsweetened Coconut

Add the ingredients, milk first, into your blender or food processor and blend to your desired consistency. 
Have fun an experiment! If you like a sweeter smoothie, add some honey! If you want more coconut flavor add more coconut! If you don't want pineapple, try some peaches!
