My Shakeology Breakfast

Saturday, December 11th, 2010
  • My fave breakfast recipe

So everyone knows that breakfast is the most imporant meal of the day… right?  Yeah, so despite knowing this my entire life… forever my breakfast every day consisted of an Iced Venti Vanilla Latte. Period.  Why?  Actually for many reasons… mostly cuz I hate taking the time to make something and I LOVE me my Vanilla Latte. 

So why take the time to stop for my Starbucks every morning?  I’m a social girl… and I’ve always called it my “Cheers” experience… accept instead of “where everyone knows my name”… it was “where everyone knows my drink”… back then anyway… at least Starbucks has stepped up the personal experience now-a-days by actually knowing my name in addition to my drink of choice.

I’ve actually finally “grown up” a bit to in regards the the breakfast thing.  Finally found my soulmate breakfast if you will… yep… Shakeology.  It’s quick and easy in the morning, especially because of my freakin’ amazing Magic Bullet!  LOVE THAT THING!  But that’s a whole ‘nother blog!  HA!   My Shakeology is not just any old protein shake… it’s seriously nutrition in a glass.  It’s got the equivalent to my daily needs for fruits and veggies as well as other fantastic buzz words out there for healthy nutrition.  Bottom line I’m actually getting in a real breakfast now instead of just my milky-espresso beverage!  And now I’m not starving by lunchtime!

More people I know prefer the Chocolate flavor of Shakeology over the Greenberry… but I’m a Greenberry girl for sure… but I do have my own special concoction that makes it tasty.  Anyway, I thought I’d share MY fave recipe in case you’ve tried the Greenberry by itself and think it’s just too… well… GREEN.  Give my little ditty a try… and let me know whatchya think!

  • 1 cup of Cran/Cherry juice
  • 1 scoop Greenberry Shakeology
  • 1/2 scoop Vanilla Meal Replacement
  • 1/4 cup frozen cherries

Blend it up in the Magic Bullet and suck it down… pretty yummy… AND the best part… it’s FULL of my day’s needed nutrients and gets me going with great energy to start the day!
