A Berry Healthy Breakfast Smoothie

Best Blogger Tips
After a very long time, I post something potable on this blog. My weekdays have again become the gruelling battles to attain metrics. Exercising with this schedule becomes a distant reality and a round of golf a weekend luxury, something sacrificed to rest the overworked body. Atleast we can eat healthy. Since, Lunch and Dinners are an indulgence for me, Breakfast are where I like to make up for all this. Maybe too little at this stage, but a start is a start.

Smoothies first hit the US market in the 1960's with the advent of the health industry and vegetarianism. But the smoothies of that time differ from the smoothies of today in terms of the fact that the old days smoothies contained only Fruit Juice, fruits & ice. Today's versions have milk ice or frozen yogurt added to them.

Incase you want to dig in more into the history of the smoothie or how they have evolved over the years read this or my favorite wikipedia thread.

This also happens to be my entry to Mansi's WBB Balanced Breakfast event. it is the 20th edition of the WBB ( which stands for Weekend Breakfast Blogger's ), so I didn't want to miss out on it, plus I had given a commitment to Mansi that I would surely send in a contribution (Srivalli, yours is in the works) ...read more on WBB Balanced Breakfasts on Mansi's blog .

1 Cup Plain Yogurt
1/2 Cup Milk
1 Tblsp Honey

1. Wash and cut strawberry tops .

Hi Gaurav,

I came here from Mansi's WBB round up. Your smoothie looks delcious for sure. Actually I prepare my strawberry smoothie without the yogurt but add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I know, it doesn't sound healthy, maybe I should try it with fat free frozen yogurt.

I also submitted a smoothie entry "Cereal and Banana Smoothie", check it out if you are interested.
