Breakfast of Champions

Breakfast of Champions
If you don’t already know of my obsession with the Vitamix, you are soon to see why it is simply one of the best inventions ever! I bought this “high tech” blender in preparation for my jaw surgery as I was going to be limited to a liquid, non chewable diet for one month.IMG_1033

Yes, I was scared.  But as I soon discovered the endless possibilities of the Vitamix, my fear turned to excitement! The recipe book included everything you can think of — from smoothies, to soups, desserts, dips, black bean burgers, lasagna, and lets not forget cocktails…  The cranberry lime sparkle will add a little shine to your night!

As many of us know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  In honor of one of my own inventions, I’m sharing a quick easy to make smoothy that is sure to pack some protein and flavor, so you can start your day the all American way!
