February is Heart Health Month and BJs Wholesale Club has some delicious produce (and recipes) to help us live a healthy lifestyle. Personally, I am a huge fan of smoothies! They’re easy to make and the perfect breakfast option for families.
Smoothies can be made in a variety of ways depending on your health needs. For example, if you’re having digestive issues, add a teaspoon of Flaxseed into your mixture. Drinking a smoothie provides ease into your morning routine and allows breakfast on the go. It can also serve as a filling afternoon snack instead of drinking a soda or eating potato chips.
2 containers (5 oz each) Yoplait Greek Cherry or Strawberry Blended Yogurt
1 1/2 cups Cascadian Farm Frozen Organic Sweet Cherries
1/2 cup Cascadian Farm Frozen Organic Strawberries
1 cup Milk
- Place all ingredients in a blender
- Cover & blend on high speed, about 1 minute or until smooth
- Pour into 3 glasses
- Serve immediately
For my smoothie recipe, I like to include a small amount of water and 2 teaspoons of Wellsley Farms Pure Honey. Also, if your schedule will be hectic the next morning, take frozen fruit out of the freezer (the night before.) This will help ingredients blend faster and more consistently. Pour the smoothie into your tumblr and go!
